All of these shows mentioned above are coming up fast and furiously. I am going through pieces that I have stowed away for quite a while now to send to the Penticton. The show called “Under $300 is the Annual Christmas Exhibition and Sale. It will run from November 7th to December 24th. While the official opening ceremony is to be Friday November 13th, I will be elsewhere.
At the Rotary Centre for the Arts 421 Cawston Avenue in Kelowna the Potters and Painters show runs November 13th, 14th and 15th.
I will be showing my newer pieces, some hand made doorstops and various hand made cards which are one of a kind.
Also, leaning against my way in my studio waiting to go out into the world are the pieces that I have created for the Livessence Show which will run the same weekend of November 13th to 15th at the Rotary Centre. As well, I have been asked to do a piece a show home in Homes for the Holidays tour. That hadn’t been finalized as yet, so it looks like some furious last minute work there.
From November 4th until December 16th I will have work hanging at the Kalamalka Gallery in Vernon.Vernon has a brand new art gallery.
Kalamalka Vertigo is located at the Kalamalka campus of Okanagan College and presents a selection of art works by Gallery Vertigo studio artists. Kalamalka Vertigo represents a new joint venture between Gallery Vertigo and Okanagan College. This is the newest incarnation of the ongoing partnership between the two institutions.
I am also loading up my etsy sight with hand made doorstops, cards, small hand painted magnets and some of the purses that I have collected over the years. CHERIEHANSON27.etsy.com
Because I like life in the slow lane, I am currently also putting together an all candidates forum at the Senior’s Centre #17 at the corner of Richter and Fuller. Inviting all of the published candidates and the various neighbourhood associations is done. Now to do a press release and ask my favorite sound guy for some help. “Oh, honey….”
This would be the year for people to buy something handmade, local and of real, long lasting value. The gift of beauty.
Check out the new issue of YLW magazine that has a feature article about Kelowna artists who show all over the world. Great pictures and informative.http://www.nxtbook.com/dawson/ylwconnection/2009fall/#/0
