Douro Dummer Library Art Gallery Exhibition

Today Daniel Marlatt and I are setting up our art show at the Douro-Dummer Library Art Gallery which is located at 425 Douro Fourth Line Road, Hamlet of Douro, Ontario.

We brought in our art work and after setting it around the walls and book cases on the lower level of the library/gallery we discussed the best way to exhibit the art.

We decided that on the lower level of the gallery space we would mix our artwork on the walls and started with the long wall on the right as you enter the lower level.

My five abstract paints together with the painting of the sea anemone were set up in the centre of the display area. To the right side of the centre paintings Daniel hang four of his smaller pieces.

To the left side of the centre paintings Daniel hung one piece on the end of the wall space and I had three pieces of mine to the right of his and to the left of the centre grouping.

In the area above the bookcase at the back of the room I put one painting on each end of the care and Daniel put a number of his pieces in between.

On the left wall we started by placing a large piece of Daniel's in the centre followed by a small watercolour painting on each side of it.

On each side of the watercolour paintings were a long piece of Daniel's art followed by a small acrylic abstract of mine that picked up the colours of his art.

In the front room Daniel took the two walls closer to the entrance to the room and I took the wall between the windows over the computers and the back wall in the reference area.

I put a larger painting in the centre of the two windows and a smaller painting on each of the outer ends of the windows to balance the display.

On the wall in the reference area I hung one large painting in the centre of the wall.

The show begins today and runs through to the 22 March, with the Opening Reception on Friday the 11 January from 7-8 p.m.

If you have the chance, please come out and enjoy the exhibit and we look forward to seeing you at the opening.
