Art Show - Pictures

The opening was great! A lot of people showed up!
These pictures were taken by my father Leo Cormier and so he only took pictures of my stuff.
I will try and get pictures of Mathieu's display as well as Julie Cassey and the others.
I wish there were much more pictures of the night, I wanted to tell this to my father but got rather bombarded/nervous/wine. If anyone that was there has any pictures, let me know! :-)

Exhibition - Sad Songs For Lonely Birds

Cute As A button!

The Confederation Center of Arts of Charlottetown, P.E.I did their annual Cute As A... contest where artists are selected and a button is made from their submitted artwork.

I was one of the selected artists this year and the art I submitted was "Skyful Bird", acrylic on panel and canvas(you'll understand this once you see the whole piece in a future near you), 10" x 12".

The piece in question is part of my series "Sad Songs For Lonely Birds" which will be shown at Gallery Sans Sous, Aberdeen Cultural Center in Moncton starting Friday, May 16th.

Unfortunately, I was unable to attend to the event which was last February due to a combination of illness and distance. I look forward to participate again next year and making it there this time! Pins were sent to me by mail and I proudly wear mine on my blazer! :-)

Please take a look at my friend Pamela's artwork.
It's great stuff!

New-Brunswick Adoption Center Chair-ity

This post is long over due...

The New-Brunswick Adoption Center does a yearly charity auction with artists for the center.

This year's auction was in last November 2007 and was called Chair-ity where the artists painted on small chairs, pots and tables for the auction. There were some paintings on canvas as well.
I hear next year will be only canvas...We'll see.

Here is what I came up with:

The pot sold a sad $250.00 but the chair went for a very reasonable $400.00 considering that the highest anything went there was $700.00.

Looking forward to next year's auction.
