Riverdale and Representation

This past weekend I traveled to Toronto to be a part of the Riverdale Art Walk. This awesome art event has been held at the Jimmie Simpson Park for the past 18 years but for me it was the very first time! And what a great time it was! The crowds on Saturday were amazing, I met so many lovely, new people and had a chance to catch up with some collectors from previous Toronto shows. I also got to see some of my Toronto artist buddies which is always a nice bonus! 

I also got to test out the amazing new hanging system that my lovely hubby designed. It is sturdy, very minimalist and it makes my art hang all nice and straight! Doesn't it look amazing? I also got to test my new vinyl banner, which is a huge improvement from the hot glued, laminated pieces of paper I had last year!

On Sunday the day started out great, but early afternoon Mother Nature decided she had seen enough art for the weekend, after a huge downpour and with a severe thunderstorm watch on the radar it was deemed saver to start packing up early. For anyone who might have missed out on seeing my work or buying that piece they fell in love with, I will be back in Toronto in 5 weeks for the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition on Nathan Phillips Square! This show will be held on July 8-10 and you will be able to find me in booth 158! 

While we were in Toronto I had a chance to drop off some work at the Latitude 44 Gallery located in the historic Junction area of Toronto on 2900 Dundas St West. They will be representing me in the Toronto area so from now on collectors in the Toronto area will now have access to my  artwork all the time at the time! Below you will see a little preview of the work that they have available at the moment. If you are in the neighbourhood you should definitely check it out! Janet and Mary Ann are amazing and they carry a beautiful collection. They have over 25 years of corporate and retail framing experience so they will also be able to help you with all of your framing needs. 

Gallery hours for the Latitude 44 Gallery are: 
Tuesday – Friday: 10am – 7pm
Saturday: 10am – 5pm
Monday: by appointment.
