Still catching up posts from some events at the end of the year! This past November I was lucky enough to have a piece of my work accepted into 2 group shows. One in my town of Ottawa at the Cube gallery – my favorite gallery in the city – and one in Montreal as a part of the Canadian Annual Mosaic Exposition.
The Cube gallery show was the Great BIG smalls XIV show, an annual showing of art all 12″ x 12″ in size or smaller. My contribution to the show was Kuro Piegare 8126, a 10″ x 10″ framed floating mosaic sculpture. It was such a cool show with over 50 artists and 200 works. The opening night party was packed and super fun, the best part being when I arrived my piece had already sold! It was pretty neat as most of the show consisted of paintings and mine was one of the few pieces that was not.
The Canadian Annual Mosaic Exposition (CAME) was held this year in Montreal. There is a lot of great mosaic talent in Canada and in the Quebec province in particular so competition this year was particularly high. Was so thrilled to have my piece Dispersion Northern Lights chosen to be a part of this wonderful show. Montreal is only 2hrs from where I live, so we traveled over for the opening night. It was a super fun evening of dinner and an absolutely packed party at the gallery. The Quebec folks really came out in support of mosaics and many artists from outside of Quebec traveled to be there in person. It was great to meet many new people and also see friends from before.
Being in these 2 group shows was the icing on the cake of an already fantastic year of work for me. I feel very grateful and lucky!
