For the love of art -- The Artist Project

Last night we went to the Artist Project, a huge and fantastic
art exhibition at the Better Living Center at the CNE in Toronto.
Whatever type of art takes your fancy, it was there.  So much
beautiful art, and so many wonderful artists.

Joyce Fournier's powerful and exciting abstract work,
and sculptures were my first stop.  Joyce kindly
got me tickets to the event, and I am so grateful to
her for that.  The show is dazzling, beginning with Joyce's pieces.

Joyce and Paul Fournier.
(speaking of the Month of Love --
these two are a sweet couple. )

Artist/Artistic Director Daniel Anaka.

I love the work of Eleanor Lowden.  I'm
sorry my photo is blurry.  She was so
delightful to talk to that I got distracted.
Eleanor's work at The Artist Project is wonderful.

When I work on landscape painting Andrew Sookrah is 
one of the people I think of.  I love his work -- his design,
colour intensity -- his work is fantastic.
We visited as many booths as we could, and I'm happy to
feature some of them tonight.  The show is on tomorrow (Sunday)
too, and I recommend that you check it out.  Here are just a few of
the people I visited.  Wishing all of the artists involved great sales,
and a superb time surrounded by such beauty!

Have fun going to the show.  Sunday February 24 is the last day.

It looks amazing!!! I would love to wander around and savour the art. Is it the same time every year? I want to attend next year.

Hi Nicki,

I wish I'd had more time. it is a huge show. I was practically running down the aisles. And there were so many artists
I would have liked to have stopped and talked to. Well I'd so love to see you if you do come out next year.
