Touring Three Art Galleries

Today Cindy, Norma and I went to visit a number of the art Galleries in Lindsay and Minden.

Our first stop was Art on Kent where we visited the All Members' Show and they looked at the space and we will discuss later about having a show there for next year.

From there we went further along Kent Street in Lindsay to see the show at The Lindsay Gallery to view the Motion in Stillness exhibition.

Needless to say as usual the show was beautifully hung on the walls with the paintings grouped together either with similar colours or similar subject matter.

From there we continued on our way to visit the Agnes Jamieson Gallery in Minden.

I had my first exhibition in this Gallery; a two person show with my mother in 1988 and again in 1991.

Then three Group shows with the Buckhorn Artists' Group in 1989, 1992 and 1995. My last show there was a three person show in 1998.

The Gallery and Library have gotten larger over the last seventeen years as well as making adding three more historical buildings on the site.

Both Cindy and Norma liked the way the Gallery looked and would like to have an exhibition of their artwork there at some point in the future.

Now we have to get together a portfolio of what we would like to display and send out the application forms to two of the Galleries.

For the three of us the next couple of years should be very busy.
