Korea Bound!

I’m very pleased to announce my participation in the G20 Summit
World Art Festival in Seoul, South Korea. The Festival runs from November 8 – 14, 2010. The Opening Reception takes place on November 8 at the Exhibition Hall of the Korea Press Centre.

Even better, I’ve been invited to visit Korea to attend the Opening Reception and to participate, with Korean and international artists, in a field sketching project on Jeju Island. I’ll try to keep you up-to-date with posts from the trip.

I’ll be traveling and exhibiting with my good friend, Kerry Inho Kim. Kerry and I go back to art school days. He’s a talented artist and a very popular instructor as well as the director of the Mississauga Valley School of Art.

I’ll be exhibiting LOW TIDE. This work on paper was created with watercolour, acrylic ink and acrylic paint and is 20 x 28”.

    Wow! Congratulations. I love this piece. Very different – modern, simple, streamlined and effective.

      Thanks for your positive thoughts, Linda. I’m glad you like the piece. It’s from a different stream of my work that I hope to pursue further in the future.

    Linda said what was on my mind. Well done. What a great experience you will have. I assume you will be collecting lots of cards from other artists…

    What a great opportunity – this is really quite inspiring.

    I find your painting quite compelling.
