Display at the Norwood Skillet

This morning was cloudy and a little cool at 20F (-6C) with the wind chill making it feel like 9F (-12.8C) as I loaded the car to take my paintings to hang the show at the Norwood Skillet Restaurant, in Norwood, Ontario.

I was exhibiting my work there with fellow artist Ron Ward who I have known for almost 25 years.

Ron has mainly much larger paintings than I have and we decided his work would be better suited to hang in the Lounge where the large open spaces would do justice to his paintings.

With having a large number of pieces being displayed in so many venues including the Peterborough Theatre Guild, the Township of Douro-Dummer Library Art Gallery, St. Matthews Church, Adventure Divers and the Kawartha Artists' Gallery and Studio.

I chose to bring smaller paintings to exhibit at the Norwood Skillet.

These pieces were much better suited to be hung in the middle room as a single collection.

Ron then hung his remaining smaller and mid-sized paintings in the front Entry room.

This gave the display unity with Ron's acrylics in the front Entry room and my small and mid-sized watercolours in the Middle room leading to Ron's large acrylics in the Lounge.

The show will remain until 27 May 15.

I hope many of you will have the chance to come out and view the show.

By the time we had finished hanging the show the temperature had made it above the freezing mark and it started to rain.

From there I headed to the Township of Douro-Dummer Library Art Gallery to meet with new collector Mrs. Heather Heffernan of Warsaw, Ontario.

I would like to thank her for her purchase of Honda Goldwing 1500cc (see post on 05 February 2010) from the exhibit as a birthday gift for her husband.
