The second good news is that one of my paintings was accepted into a juried art show next week. York Region (north of Toronto) is organizing a new Arts Council. Their inaugural event, The Chairman’s Dinner for the Arts in York Region, will take place next Wednesday, October 7th. It will feature about 45 visual artists that live and work in the region, as well as several performance artists, including singers-songwriters Randy Bachman and Justin Hines.
I didn’t even know about this opportunity until I connected with and became a member of the Israeli Group of Artists in Toronto. The group’s president is Shaked Kaplan, a very talented potter and clay artist. Other than organizing and leading the group, Shaked also send us regular notifications about art opportunities locally, nationality and internationally. I missed the deadline for this show, but then I got another note from Shaked that the deadline was extended! So I decided to try it out, and at the end, Talit, one of the paintings I submitted, was accepted.
Talitis an Acrylics painting created last year. I was trying to explore lights and shadows and creating a fabric image with an object not usually depicted by other artists. Using the Talit on daily basis in morning prayers, it was just natural for me to use it. I actually plan one day to explore this subject matter even further, but again, all in time.
Lastly, I was very excited earlier this week when EmptyEasel decided to publish an article I submitted last week about 2 great examples of social networking success for online artists. Since it was published I already connected with couple of the Twitter 140 group of artists. You can read it in my blog and also on EmptyEasel.
