Friday night it was the Federation of Canadian Artists annual art auction at Performance Works. Tension filled the air as ticket holders waiting for their name to be called so they could choose a painting. I was choosing on behalf of some friends who were unable to attend so I experienced the pressure firsthand. All in all it was a fun event and people were able to scoop up some pretty amazing art for the ticket price of $700.00
Yesterday my husband Alan, and our good friend Mike Svob, had a show open at White Rock Gallery. A great crowd, lots of red dots and the show looked beautiful. The contrast between Alan's and Mike's work is profound- Alan; subtle, detailed and thoughtful, Mike: bold, colourful and exhuberant but somehow it all works together. White Rock Gallery has the visual presentation down to a fine art itself so check out this show if you are in the area.
