Coming Up For Air

Indeed…after months of relentless work in the studio, I have finally come up for some well deserved air!  All those early mornings, late nights, and committed weekends in the studio has paid off.  I’m very excited to introduce twelve new paintings in my upcoming solo exhibition COMING UP FOR AIR with Sivarulrasa Gallery in Almonte, ON.

COMING UP FOR AIR will debut this weekend (October 16th, 2016 from 2 – 5pm) alongside the gallery’s grand opening of its new space at 33 Mill Street, Almonte, ON.

I’ll definitely be there and I hope you will be too!

Installation Shot

It may still be chilly outside, but the warmth of spring has nature blooming into full colour at Sivarulrasa Gallery this month. The current show BLOOM brings together Deborah Arnold (Almonte), Barbara Gamble (Ottawa), Susan Tooke (Halifax) and me (Toronto). I’m thrilled to be showing with such great women and talented artists.

We are all in attendance at the gallery’s vernissage this afternoon from 3-6pm.

Come join us!

Artwork at Balzac’s Cafe

Before I start work at the studio, I treat myself to coffee at Balzac’s. The space is gorgeous, the people familiar and friendly. It’s a wonderful way for me to slip into my creative space with good vibes and caffeine flowing through my veins. If you’ve never ventured upstairs, comfy chairs and couches offer a warm, contemplative space. A perfect spot, in my opinion, to enjoy the artwork that I’ve recently hung for the month of February.

2015 is shaping up to be a good year so far.   Resolutions in tow, I got my butt back into yoga and my creative juices flowing in the art studio.  To kick off the new year, I’ll be showing my newest painting at Cube Gallery this month in celebration of the gallery’s 10th anniversary.  The vernissage is held Sunday, January 11th, 2 – 5pm.  Packing my bags as I finish writing this post…can’t wait!  I’ll be at the opening, as will many of my fellow artists.

Come join us!

Mary at TOAE 2014

What an amazing weekend!

THANK YOU! …to all who came out to show their support for me and for my work!  I really appreciated it, and truly felt the love everyone brought with them.

The TOAE proved to be a very successful show for me.  I met many wonderful people in these past few days: friends, clients and colleagues alike. I feel so very fortunate that many of my paintings have now found homes and a new level of appreciation.

This weekend has left me tired but happy and inspired.

I’m off to the studio now to make some magic happen.

Dear Ci, You Brighten Up My Day

Dear Ci, You Brighten Up My Day

The TOAE is right around the corner and I’m so happy to be a part of such a great venue once again.  Some of you will remember me from previous years sweating under the beating sun and keeping cool by eating more popsicles than one should!  This year will be no different except I’m a little older and (hopefully!) a little wiser.

More importantly though, I’ll be bringing new work.

The vibe of the show is electric, exciting and generally very fun to experience for both exhibiting artists and visitors alike.

Be sure to come by and give me a high five at BOOTH H22

Show hours:

Friday, Saturday 10:30am – 7:30pm

Sunday 10:30am – 6:30pm
