Inc. Squared Fundraiser

Orange Window by Barry Coombs-acrylic and cardboard on wood panel

by Barry Coombs

Hamilton Artist Inc. is having a fundraiser this weekend. Artwork can be viewed and/or purchased on Friday, May 17 from 12-6 and Saturday, May 18 from 12-5. The exhibition will be followed by the Fundraiser Art Party at 7 pm on Saturday.

All artists were invited to pick up a 12 x 12″ wood panel from the Inc. The artists were encouraged to create an artwork on the panel using the medium of their choice.

All work is sold for $100. Sales are donated to the Inc. Artists can donate 50% and keep 50% or donate the full 100%.

I’ve been painting watercolours all winter and, as much as I enjoy it, it felt good to work on something different. My piece, ORANGE WINDOW, is a painted low relief made with cardboard and acrylic on a wood panel. I’ve exhibited my cardboard reliefs in the past and plan to do more in the near future.

Hamilton Artists Inc. is located at 155 James Street North, Hamilton ON (at the north west corner of James and Cannon Streets). They can be contacted at 905.529.3355 and

    I love “Orange Window”, Barry. Even posted on-line its dynamic composition and evocative texture permeates. Wish I could have been in Hamilton for the show. Congrats!

    Hi Barry, I like your “orange window” It’s very dynamic and the corrugated cardboard give it wonderful texture.
