April Show & Studio Sale

Hello All!

I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend full of family and friends! I had a wonderful weekend with family, and I some how I managed to get into the garden and start my seeds. I am looking forward to spring and a new season of growth.

I am writing to let you all know that this weekend April 10, 11, &12 will be my Final Show & Sale with Studio 113 at the Rotary Centre for the Arts. I am both excited to begin my new adventure in life as a mother, but I am also very sad to leave such a wonderful space and good friends. As some of you may already know this is the final hurrah to the March Madness Sale. All artworks in the studio will be 50% off the labeled price, that includes framed artworks & paintings. I will also have all of my hand bound books marked at $5 off the labeled price. So this is a great time to invest in an original Ganson art work.

Both of my Studio Mates will also be showing their art works and selling them a great prices as well.

Time goes by

Wow what happened! It has been a long while since I did a post, trust me I haven’t forgot about you. Life has just been busy the past while. I can tell you that I have been working on two new bodies of work… and well I am going to hold on to that secret for a bit longer. But I can tell you it will be worth the wait.

My last post was about the Sketch Book Project, and I can tell you that it is now on it’s way to Europe! I’m very excited to get feed back on my book. So we will wait and see what comes of it, but for now  it can be viewed on the Sketch Book Project web site.

On another note, Studio 113 was once full of four artists but now it’s just two Angela Bonten and myself. It was a bit of an adjustment to go from four to two, but I think that it was a great choice. Between the two of us we have way to much stuff and have filled the space up already, and it doesn’t help that we both have been working on a much larger scale. (that’s right I did say ‘Larger’) If your interested in the studio happenings you can always checkout our studio blog at Studio113.wordpress.com We really are doing our best to stay on track, and will keep you informed of what we are doing, what we are learning and all the trials and errors that come with that.

Ang and my self have a show for the month of May called ‘More Than Just the Surface’  This will be our first official show with an official opening since the summer. I am very excited about it, and will post pictures as soon as it has been hung. This show will also be in conjunction with a Wine, Art and Music Festival in Kelowna called WAM. Opening night will be May 12, 2012 for both events.

So until then I will leave you, and I will post again.

Adventures at Artwalk

My First day at Okanagans Lake country Artwalk was amazing. Three years back, I belonged to the Night Mode Gallery, and I got to show a few works at artwalk. This year was different because this was my first time displaying as an solo artist. The experience that I had today in comparison to last time was very different. Since I was solo people were able to see my body of work as a hole, it really made a difference in viewing. The feed back from the viewers and other artists was priceless. The four words that were used the most to describe my works were; different, refreshing, unique, and fun. I was so happy to share my story with others, and even more excited that they wanted to hear them. Any show like this would be more than worth the efforts, because the information that people share with you is amazing. I thank everyone who took the time to have a look at my art, your words are very appreciated.

I also decided to get involved and do a live painting. Yep a live painting! Since this years artwalk theme was “eye tunes” I had the pleasure of painting a still life of musical instruments in fifteen minutes! Crazy, and super fun! I have never in my life done anything thing like this, I must say it exciting.

Lakecountry Artwalk will be on 10-5 September 10-11, 2011 go have a look and let me know what you think. 300 Artist’s makes for great inspiration!
