Events One World – Art Show and Fundraiser


On May 1st, I will be participating in One World, alongside so many incredible artists!!!

The organizer of this event, Monika Blichar explains:

“In an effort to raise funds for those devastated by the massive earthquake in Haiti, artists from the lower mainland, Vancouver Island, Los Angeles, and Milwaukie are coming together for a one-time event located in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia.

ONE WORLD will showcase over 60 artists and their unique skills and creative talents on May 1, 2010 at Science World, in Vancouver, BC. Guests will have the opportunity to meet the artists, view and purchase original artwork, take part in an amazing silent auction, all while enjoying live entertainment and bar service!!!”

Events, Pictures Gastown grace-gallery Satellites still open!


The Gastown satellite spaces for grace-gallery are still open following Artwalk Vancouver 2010. My Spaced Out paintings, and my latest painting “Magellanic Cloud” can be viewed at 20 Water Street, Vancouver. The hours are 2 – 7pm, or by appointment.

The 10 satellite spaces were empty, with no power, and they took a great deal of work to prepare – and the results are amazing! They are raw and dynamic and unique, and brought to life with the artwork of 23 artists. Rachel Zottenberg of grace-gallery did a stunning job of pulling this together in only three weeks! Below are some pictures of my exhibition…
