Two Guys and a Girl Show Opening

Today is the opening of the Two Guys and a Girl Exhibit at the Kawartha Artists Gallery and Studio, located at 420 O'Connell Road, Peterborough, Ontario.

I was pleasantly surprised at the number of people who came out to see the show, considering the temperature was 88F (31C) and the humidity made it feel like 91F (33C).

I am not sure that I would have gone to a show on a day as hot as this when it continues for another two weeks.

It was interesting to see the visitors interacting with the artists and discussing the artwork among them.

About halfway through the afternoon Ron came out to see the show. This is the first time he has ever come out to see one of my gallery opening receptions.

He spent the better part of an hour speaking with Daniel Marlatt and Emil Varga about their art, before he left to return home to do chores.

I spoke with many people about my art and a number of them were especially interested in my pen and ink drawings and my poured acrylic abstract paintings.

Shortly before closing Christine arrived to see the show. She has always been very supportive of my art and chose her three favourite pieces in this show.

We ended up staying open past our closing time to accommodate the pubic. On the whole it was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.

I would like to thank returning collector Ms. Christine Martin of Peterborough, Ontario on her purchase of Creation VI (see post on 10 October 2018).
