Upcoming Shows

It has been a busy spring in the studio and our gardens and now we’re busy preparing for upcoming art shows!

I’m excited to be at Art by the Lighthouse in Niagara on the Lake on July 30 & 31 (details below) for the first time. It’s such a lovely community and the Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre is right on the water. That weekend also features the TD Niagara Jazz Festival and Canal Days in Port Colborne so there is a lot of entertainment to take in.

I will be returning to the Buckhorn Fine Art Festival for my fourth year. I love this show – especially the Friday Night Garden Party and catching up with so many talented artists that have become

friends.

My final show for 2016 is Six Degrees of Freedom in Etobicoke at the end of August which also features my father, Bruce Stonehouse. We had father/daughter shows in both Thunder Bay and Lindsay in 2011 and it’s great to have the opportunity to exhibit together again – this time with four other amazing artists!

Exhibition at Kawartha Lakes City Hall

My paintings are currently on display at Kawartha Lakes City Hall at 26 Francis St. in Lindsay.

It’s beautiful Victorian architecture is a beautiful backdrop for a gallery! The Mayor has provided the opportunity for local artists to exhibit their work each month. It’s great to have another venue to promote and share our artwork in our community.

City Hall is open to the public Monday to Friday 8:30am – 4:30pm and my paintings will be up until November 13. Stop by and take a look!

A new display of work

I now have some paintings available at Galaxy Picture Frames on Kent St. W. in downtown Lindsay (next to the Olympia Restaurant). They provide custom picture framing and they also feature local artist’s work on their beautiful brick walls. If you’re in the area please stop in and take a peek.

Thank you very much to owner Janet Reeds for this opportunity!

Big news!

I am very pleased to announce that I have been accepted to this year’s Buckhorn Fine Art Festival and to the Victoria County Studio Tour! I’m so excited!

The Buckhorn Fine Art Festival is August 16, 17 & 18 and the Victoria County Studio Tour is October 5 & 6 and October 12 & 13 so mark your calendars.

I received some really great feedback from the selection committee for the Buckhorn show which will be helpful as I prepare. I’m going to be VERY busy from now until August and every spare minute will be spent painting! I would like to have quite a few new paintings for the show so I have a lot of work to do.

Earlier this week I attended Artrepreneur in Peterborough and it was an excellent day. It was a full day on the business side of art and I learned quite a bit about value, pricing, distribution networks, marketing and promotion. I also met some fabulously talented people that I plan on staying in touch with.

I did a quick demo on the ArtRage and Brushes apps for the iPad plus I was on a panel in the afternoon. Great fun!
