I am delighted to have my pastel painting “Summer Reflections”, 19 x 27″, accepted into BFAA’s The Artist’s Mark Juried show. Thank you to the Artists Mark Committee and sponsors for the tremendous effort put into this project to support local artists. Thank you to jurors Jennifer Heine and Clarence A Porter who had the challenging task of choosing forty pieces from a large number of outstanding diverse submissions. It was helpful to hear the rationale behind your insightful choices. We are all looking forward to seeing this show in person at the Hub Gallery, Burlington Centre mall in Burlington from Jan 21 -31, 2022.
