TORONTO OUTDOOR ART EXHIBITION....THE DEETS....

Happy Monday everyone!!
I have exactly 11 days until the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition opens.
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!
Ok, I am better now! I need to scream it out!
So I want to tell you all about this show. For those of you who missed the recap on last years show, you can click here for the nitty gritty stories!!!
Ok, so here are the deets:


Now in its 50th year, the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition [TOAE] is a juried showcase featuring contemporary fine art and craft that takes place annually on Nathan Phillips Square, every July.

As the largest outdoor art exhibition in Canada, TOAE offers a fresh-air alternative to conventional art shows and galleries. Hundreds of artists participate and an estimated 100,000 visitors attend the exhibition every year.  Side by side, established artists, undiscovered talents and innovative students sell their work directly to the public and make lasting connections with art dealers and collectors. 


What is exceptional (for me) about this year, is that the show is smaller than ever before (due to the
 "revitalization project" in the square). So there are less exhibitors, and this makes it kinda extra special to be juried in!!!  
(insert pat on back here) ;-)

So here are a couple more of the little shadow boxes I am working on for The Toronto Outdoor Show:


"City Slicker", 6" x 9", Mixed media,
The imagery from this piece is take from a sold piece called "Choose the Pace"

The lady in the 'slicker' is imagery from one of my drawings for an upcoming piece.
and has the usual paint and ink embellishments.
Have I mentioned that it is only $100?????




"Honest to Goodness", 6" x 9", Mixed media,
The car is taken from an AVAILABLE piece called "Traffic Jam" and the man and his popping champagne is from "Party Time" which is available (as of today) at Rivertown Gallery in London ON. 
and has the usual paint and ink embellishments.
It also has a toy wheel and some cool letters attached!!
SUPER FUN, HUH?
And super affordable!
