Opening night at the Artist Project on all weekend

Gill Cameron was clearly having a great time,
and her beautiful watercolours made
a vibrant display.

Eleanor Lowden's work was a must see.
I've been watching her develop
this cheerful series on Instagram.

Mike Rachlis's huge portraits are amazing.

Andrew Cheddie Sookrah was one of the artists
whose work I absolutely had to see.  I've
been watching the development of some of
the work he's installed in the exhibition and his work is 

Dalia Elcharbini's work is mostly graphite on 
paper, gilded with real gold.
This work is graphite on canvas, and is
beautiful and dramatic.

Ilinca Ghibu brought her gorgeous, large flower 
paintings to the show from Montreal.
They are stunning.  

Steven and I were excited to get out tonight for the first
night of the Artist Project at the CNE.  I have several
friends and artist colleagues in the show, and was
eager to see their work.

It was so exciting.  I love the variety of work -- true
there are so many wonderful artists.  It's like going to
a huge art gallery.  So inspiring.

I took a few shots (above) for you to enjoy, but if you're in
Toronto, head on down!  There is so much more to see than
I could possibly include here.

Have a going to an art show day.

Hi Flora,

It was so exciting. We're in Ottawa now with poor Internet, so I have not been
able to answer you. It was amazing. So many great artists. I would have
loved to have gone with you.
