Check out this great show


A dear friend, Gill Cameron had an opening tonight
at a gallery on the Danforth in Toronto. I just love
her work, and she showed with another artist, Chris
Cooper, who paints the same wild, Ontario
landscape, but in oil, so their work displayed very well
together.

Gill had some new work that just blew my socks off.
She is an absolute genius with colour, abstraction,
light, watercolour and joy in the landscape. Her style is
100% original and gorgeous.

Her openings are always buzzing with people, good
conversation, wine and goodies. The show was
the perfect treat to end a long and busy week.

I'm including the invitation. If you're in town
by all means go and see it. If there's anything left
to buy, snap it up.

Have a getting-to-see-great-art day.

Sounds wonderful and exciting, Barbara!! I did look up both artists and you have described them well...great abstractions and design qualities....they both have a very organic feel to their work, that I really admire, and I am sure they display extremely well together!

Hi Theresa,

I'm glad you enjoyed their work. So did I! I shown with Gill before, and
I'm always completely dazzled by her
treatment of the landscape I love.

Take care,

Barbara
