Hanukkah Art in the Little Art Show

Hanukkah Art in the Little Art Show

I have been quite busy in the last few days working on changing my blog platform (more details soon), but I got some great news that I am very excited about! 

Playing My Dreidel

Playing My Dreidel, Watercolor, 6''x8'' (8''x10'' with white space), 2009

My painting “Playing My Dreidel” was accepted to the Artists’ Network 8th Annual Little Art Show. The Little Art Show is a very unique event, organized by the Artists’ Network. My art teacher and mentor Gary Smith, whom I met few years ago (you can read the story in my post “Plein Air Landscapes with Gary or Did I Survived the Mosquitos“) is the vice-chairman of the group, a network of local artists in Toronto and the area, organized to enhance their art business. I have not yet joined the group, but it is on my short list of things to do. Here is the show’s description from the Artists’ Network site:

Great Art … Great Night…

The Little Art Show is the Artists’ Network signature fundraiser, and has established itself as one of Toronto’s most innovative art events. The Artists’ Network is dedicated to supporting artists in their visual arts practice. The Little Art Show allows the Artists’ Network to help artists and operate their many programs. 

Artists from around the world donate an 8 x 10 inch art work to be put up for silent auction.  Work by well known artists such as Steven Nederveen, Beverly Owens, Kelly McCrea, and Stev’nn Hall will be up for auction. The crowd of art lovers gather at Mercedes-Benz downtown to enjoy an evening of art, entertainment, music, food and drinks. Arriving at the front door you are greeted by our free valet service which attends to your vehicle. The Little Art Show is a fun evening that allows you to support the artists, the Artists’ Network and the Toronto arts community. 

Couple of weeks ago Gary suggested that I will submit a painting to the juried show. I just finished few paintings for my Zazzle store, and thought “Playing My Dreidel” will be perfect for the event. Hanukkah being few weeks away, I hope someone will fall in love with this little piece of art and will bid on it :-)Please join me and the entire Artists’ Network to this wonderful event. Canadian Idol’s  and artists manager Jake Gold will be the Honourary Chair and Master of Ceremonies. There will be live art demonstration by artist Ben Stansfield, door prizes, drinks and of course, lots of beautiful art!
