“In Praise of Canvas,” an exhibit at Sunbury Shores Art and Nature Centre, St. Andrews, NB

It has been a busy summer and fall, and I have neglected my blog. Now is the time to play catchup.

My exhibit on Grand Manan Island in July was followed by a show at Sunbury Shores Gallery in St. Andrews, NB (www.sunburyshores.org)  The exhibit opened with a well-attended reception on  August 12 and it ran until September 7. 

I was privilaged to share the gallery space with Michael Chesley Johnson (www.michaelchesleyjohnson.com). Michael is a plein air painter who is well known for his oil and pastel landscapes of the Canadian Maritimes and the American southwest. He spends his summers at his studio on Campobello Island, NB, and his winters in Sedona, Arizona.

My exhibit consisted of  19 digital prints, and all but one were on canvas. The title of the show (“In Praise of Canvas”) is an indication of how excited I am about using canvas as a support medium for photography.  The comments in the guest book were very encouraging. There was even one from someone who signed in as Sarah Palin and wrote “you betcha.” Some examples of the pieces that I exhibited at St. Andrews are shown below.
