Other than the fact that my head is so stuffed that my keyboard peckings reverberate in my skull, all is moving towards recovery from a terrible late summer cold. After losing a week to it, I can finally sit up long enough to start thinking about the upcoming group show in October at Auburn Gallery. The show opens on October 9th.
This show is a little exciting and a little different for me. The focus is on the region’s heritage. There will be photos from the archives shot by one of the town’s original documentarians (now passed), Henry Fry. Mr. Fry’s darkroom was in the basement of the very building the Gallery is now in. Helene Adamson is doing portraits of prominent Gravenhurst citizens of the past and I will be sharing just a few paintings of places in the region I have found in my travels in the area and their stories.
For the first time, I will also be showing photographs. I have taken many over my over 2 years of wandering around Muskoka and Simcoe and thought it was time that I share some of the neat places and things I have found. I am currently working my way through the archive to see what I think might be good to include. Some I will draw from my Flickr page, the blog and others I held back for painting, but then, the painting never quite happened. I have shared a couple shots in this post that I plan to make into matted prints for the Show.
Stay tuned to the blog at the beginning of October for more news!
I also want to pass on a heartfelt congratulations to my long time friend, Stephanie, on her upcoming wedding. She was a tough one to catch, but, a lovely gentleman named George finally got her. Best wishes…
