Seeing art shows and being careful about COVID

Yesterday we went out masked, and with full understanding about
protocols, and met our friend, the wonderful artist Georgia 
Fullerton, to see a photography art show I Am The Woman, featuring
the work of Jorian Charlton at the Cooper Cole Art Gallery curated
by the Photographer -- our friend Solana Cain. Solana is a photography
editor for the Globe and Mail. 

We loved the show, and Jorian's photographs are powerful and 
expressive. Her subjects for the most part are looking straight at
the camera -- creating a powerful connection with the viewer.
Check it out if you have a chance. 

We also stopped in to Canvas Gallery, which is around the corner
from the Cooper Cole Gallery, and met the owner Mark
Hunter who runs the gallery with his wife Megan Less.  The gallery
is packed with work, and so many of my friends and Instagram
friends exhibit there.  It's an exciting space with 100s of pieces
on the wall, and carefully stacked against the wall (reminiscent
of almost every room in our house), which makes it casual,
welcoming and fun. 

All in all with masks, social distancing and limited times in both
spaces, it was our first outing to galleries since the pandemic,
and a treat all round.  Thank you Solana for inviting us, and all
of the artists whose work we saw today, for your fabulous
and inspiring talent. 

Have a loving art day.
