A really big show -- in T.O. this weekend!


In September I submitted 6 of my portraits
to a show opening this week in Toronto at the
Super Wonder Gallery.  Three of my ocean series
paintings have been accepted, and a self portrait.
I also submitted my The Conversation Continues
series, but am not sure if there will be room in the
show for them.

Why?  It is a huge show -- over 300 artists will have
work in the space -- which itself is impressively large.
There's a $10 charge for admission to cover the curator's
costs in renting the gallery, and a cash bar.  I think
it will be as the curator Daniel Anaka says, "epic."

If you're in Toronto please come out.  I will be there
both nights.

Daniel's title, ReVersion is about the resurgence of figurative
work in the city.  And from what I saw when I dropped
off my paintings, he is right -- everything from
abstract figurative, to classical work and all of the
possibilities in between -- all vibrantly alive.

Please come and check it out.  I'd love to see you at
the opening(s).

Have a coming-to-a-big-show day.

Thanks so much Sally,

It seems really fun, and I'll meet a huge number of artists
I've never met. I think that will be quite exciting!

Let's talk soon,

Hi Barbara,

Your work is so beautiful, and I am so happy to read about the shows you are in. I hope the opening was wonderful and that you met some wonderful people - but I think you will have, your energy would draw the wonderful people to you! :)

If I lived closer I would definitely go and see this exhibition. C'est las vie, maybe next time!
