I’ll have a few paintings on display at Stewart Hall through November

Just a note to say, I have a couple of my oil paintings on exhibition at the Stewart Hall Art Gallery in Pointe Claire as part of the 2016 group exhibition for their Art Rental Program.

This is an interesting service, in which the gallery offers a chance to take a ready-to-hang work of art home and enjoy it on your walls for a very reasonable monthly fee. Most works are available for under $20 a month. A great way to bring original artwork into your home while supporting a local artist.

These knife paintings were done last spring – here’s the original post about the paint out in Charlevoix. You might be interested to get a close up look at these works. They have a delicious surface, if I do say so myself.

The exhibition runs Oct 31 to Nov 29, and the vernissage is this Sunday, Nov 1 at 2 pm. Stewart Hall is at 176 Du Bord-du-Lac, Lakeshore Road Pointe-Claire, Quebec H9S 4J7.

As an added bonus, you can see some large-format photography by my wife Laurel Holmes. Work from our last trip to Newfoundland. This will be our first group show together! Very exciting for us :) Hope to see some of you there!

    You might want to change your heading. It’s Stewart Hall, in case they are trying to find it.

    Funny I was just thinking about your Charlevoix oils yesterday, though I can’t remember the exact context. I have a feeling you were quite surprised with the results of your Charlevoix oils, at least I was. I think for me they symbolize a certain fear for which I have a hard time expressing. Fear of one life time not being enough. Congratulations to you and your wife. I can see her telling her friends now “I’m in a group show with the hubster ” !

      Hey Francisco – I would say yes I was pleasantly surprised:) To be able to switch media from what I do a lot, to something I only touch a few times a year – its a great feeling of new territory to explore :) I know exactly what you mean – one life is too short! I guess that’s why we have to maximize our days painting and minimize our days working for the man:)

    VERY nice!!!!! Another of your personas seems to paint [landscapes] in oil — and so well! (I would love to see you decorate a couple of cakes: Luscious!) Wonderful photos too — great color. Such a daunting duo!

      I recently met a cake decorator with a storefront in Dubai and a global business in bespoke cakes. She would fly in like a cake decorating delta force – make amazing weddings happen – then vanish into the night. So apparently I should do this yes!
