Trudy's work for this show '...is an eclectic mix of images inspired by the
landscape of the province of NL. The evening and night images invoke calmness
while the daytime images remind us to respect the natural pristine world. All
are acrylics on stretched canvas.'
This exhibition will be up for two weeks, and is the last in the series of Guest Artists for this year.
Hopefully this is just the start of things to come at the Glass Gallery. Come one out and enjoy some beautiful art and creativity in Gros Morne!
I am very proud to announce the Opening of my mother's exhibition as part of the Guest Artist Series,
An Islander's Fibre Art,
this Saturday (July 26th) 2-4pm
at the Glass Gallery.
Maria Voitk's work will be displayed in the Glass Gallery July 26th-Aug 9th; if you are out and about the Gros Morne area, please drop by the Glass Gallery and take a gander at her award-winning fibre art.
Myself and my Gallery Assistant got a FREE DAY OFF last week, so away to the great Northern Peninsula to chase down icebergs we went!
After the Monday morning shower, we stopped again at the Arches... photographed both under and over.
Northland Tours took us out into the foggy rainy weather, we saw fantastic icebergs, seabirds galore, and minke whales.
Picked up a bergy bit en route, and munched down on 10-15 000-year old pure ice that had come from Greenland, melted a bit, travelled northwards again, then finally down to us in Newfoundland. Imagine the ages!
In contrast to the cold-and-wet-day, sitting in between two familiars was rather warm rather fast.
Supper in the Gallery... all utensils used-- tupperware cover and spoons served as plates and forks/knives. We make do. Happily.
Good times midst the paintings!
Bellies full to almost-pass-out-stage, Gallery Assistant and self seem to have procured a uniform over time. I think it will be mandatory to wear the uniform Sundays.
Rodney Mercer is the first Guest Artist at the Glass Gallery, and his Solo Exhibition, Figuratively Speaking is up until this coming Saturday (June 28).
In Rodney's own words, he uses his art as 'a vehicle to illustrate the many correlations of life through the contextualising of the everyday with the iconography of popular culture and observations of the human condition'. Skilfully rendered, often tongue-in-cheek and full of intelligent observations and wit, Mercer's work will stand the test of time in terms of relevancy and quality.

Elemental Nexus, a four-person installation of glass, metal, and stone is up for just this last week at the Devon House Main Gallery in St. John's... if you are the Big City, stop by and check it out. For those of you who might not make it all the way to the Avalon, I am posting images of part of my part in the show (the rest of ye should be very familiar with this already, right?).
