Expressions of Nature - Three Photographers Show




You are very welcome to the opening of this 3 artists' show (one of them is myself).
The work that will be gathered here will connect all your senses with 3 different perceptions of nature. The most awesome feature is that every single piece is created through digital photography. 

This show resulted after a jury selection performed by the West Vancouver Community Arts Council last year. I am really glad and pleased for co-exhibit with Elaine whose artwork is such a terrific dance of color, rythm and texture; and in the other hand with Karen, who transmits a superb harmony, joy and balance in her nature expressions.

For what my artwork matters, I can only say:

Come and listen with your eyes open,
come and touch with your heart,
there will be unspoken words,
silence,
seasons,
and
maybe after that...
 a connection in the peace.

Art Renting: Accesible, tax deductible & progressive


The rental program at North Vancouver Arts Council has new pieces for the starting of the year. Including two pieces of myself :)

This is  a program that has been there for more than 30 years in the community. It has pieces from a myriad of artists of the community. Original art pieces are available for accesible rent (as low as $10 monthly). If you rent a piece for about 3 months and then you fall in love with it... you can buy it and the rent you have already paid will be taken against the price of the piece!  Oh! but if you want to give a new look to the same wall you can go to the gallery and select another piece for rent and return the previous one you have rented.

Another advantage of the Art Rental Program is that expenses under this character are tax deductible for business. Beside this, you may really have an entirely new aesthetic experience bringing original pieces of art to your home/business walls. No need of huge makeovers.

Try to go out of your comfort zone and visit this show that is waiting for you. If you do, don't forget to visit the panels section in the back of the gallery. You will find much more pieces available for rent.
