Gibson Fine Art is hosting my first solo show in two years! I am very pleased to be having my first solo show with the gallery, as well as to have found the force and energy to create a body of work that I am extremely proud of, in what has turned out to be one of the most challenging years! Summary: COVID19 and the birth of our twins Sofia & Austin! By some miracle I have managed to escape to the studio to create a number of new works that will all be on display at Gibson Fine Art this weekend. I will be in attendance, and hidden behind a mask!
While the province navigates the shifting rules and regulations to minimize the spread of COVID19, rest assured the gallery will be following those regulations to a T. This sadly means no wine will be served! What, an art show with no wine? Yes, we are at the dawn of a new era, and this also means new approaches to advertising and sales through the galleries. Gibson Fine Art will be putting up a virtual tour of the gallery for those of you who would rather stay at home.
To see a complete display of new paintings available at the gallery please CLICK HERE and you will be taken to the portfolio. Check back this weekend when the virtual tour will be posted! All new works plus some extras are also uploaded to this, my personal website.
I am also delighted to have created my second set of Windows paintings! I created 16 and they are so popular that I have only got 2 left (the bottom two in the left column). If you would like to be notified about the next collection, please click here to email me and I will add you to the waiting list for the next set. Will I have them done in time for Christmas? I’m not sure! Fingers crossed. At $250 framed, they make original Sheldons affordable and fun. And I love doing them!
On a different note, in a recent newsletter I announced that I would be collaborating with Mountain Galleries in the Fairmont Hotels. This is no longer the case. COVID19 and other things led to this plan being shelved. Of course, if you are Jasper-bound, and staying at Jasper Park Lodge, feel free to come by Heartspace Jasper to check out what works are in progress and for sale in my studio!
Well, I am very pleased and proud of my most recent work. Perhaps I will get to see some of you at the gallery which will be open this Saturday, to regulated numbers. And if I don’t see you there, perhaps we’ll connect virtually.
Stay well, stay healthy and perhaps most importantly this winter, stay sane! (buying original art may just help…).
And thank you for reading!
