Island Paintings III
Visual Space Gallery, 3352 Dunbar Street, Vancouver, BC
Thursday September 24 – Wednesday, October 7, 2020
Noon – 5PM daily with extended hours on Wednesdays & Fridays until 8PM
Come “tour” the Islands!
If it takes a village to raise a child, I require a posse of talented people to help me put on an exhibition. As always, my wife Lyne encourages me and, when I am struggling to decide if a painting is finished, assesses whether the painting has “hoomph” (with a French accent, of course). Ted Clarke (ImageThis) takes meticulous photographs of finished paintings; Graham Warren (Westart) makes classy floating frames that compliment the works, and a crew from Brandon Thiessen (Thiessenartservices) hangs the paintings in Yukiko Onley’s Visual Space Gallery.
Letting people know about the exhibition also involves a great deal of effort: almost as much as painting the works. Mia at Kits Media prepares these newsletters and updates my website. Janice at Preview Graphics designs my print adverts. But these are strange and distanced times, and I could very much use your help. Please make people you know aware of this show. Word of mouth referrals by your art-loving friends, relatives and acquaintances – whether it be accomplished by phone, email, Instagram, Twitter or Facebook – would be much appreciated.
Re COVID19: I will be taking every precaution. I have been loaned a Heppa air filter machine. Masks will be worn by all visitors, physical distancing maintained, and a maximum of 10 people will be in the gallery at any time. Surfaces will be disinfected frequently. I’m currently booking appointments at 15 minute intervals. Please write me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know what time works for you, or to ask questions!
If you cannot come in person, please have a look at each exhibition on my website: https://www.haughton-art.ca/exhibitions/island-paintings-iii/.
I hope that in these days of a COVID-altered existence, when one cannot travel easily to one’s favorite island, wherever it may be, that you can take a vicarious pleasure in my painted reactions to the wonderful islands of British Columbia.
I hope to see you during the next two weeks at the Visual Space Gallery on Dunbar.
With affection and respect, David
