Common Journeys and Solo Flights

I really like the title of this show. It represents the members of Gallery 96, an artist co-op that I belong to, very well. We are a mixed group that work in a variety of media and are following different paths, ideas and themes.
This is our last show that is funded by the Trillium Foundation. We will be on our own from here on.

Here are a few photos from the show, there are alot I couldn't take because of the glare from the glass. I entered my birch bark corset, and snail armour which you would have seen in previous entries. I also added a new piece that expressed my view of the dieing coral reefs.

                                    These are 2 great pieces by Val O'Flynn

                                     Some luscious apples by Anna Koot


          This is a self portrait by Kathi Posliff in a dress she did for
                      "Wearable Art", earlier this fall

Here is another of Glenn Elliotts terrific metal sculptures, flanked by 2 encaustic pieces by Michelle Salter from her winter series.

Check out Glenn's work at  You will get a great view of alot of his work.

         These are 3 pieces by cartoonist turned painter, Erik Sansom

Pardon the glare on this acrylic piece by Wendy Orr. Yes there are 2 Wendys in the group. I keep thinking we should do a show called Wendy squared ( can't make the2 in to a Sq. sign, is that even possible?)
We also seem to be having an apple theme going, must be the season, Ontario produced tons of apples.
You can see more of Wendy's work on her blog,

                                 These are clay pieces from Bonnie Steinman's "Skin Series".

A not very good photo of photographer Lesley Walker Fitzpatrick's work, altered and collaged water photos. If you click to enlarge you get a slightly better image. More of Lesley's work is on

Printmaker Lucinda Jones piece from her water series, sorry for the window reflections. As I said the glass was a problem and I"m not a professional photographer.

Our last effort for 2010 will be our big fundraiser, November 20th at 7pm, VineArt, an evening of tasting, good music and gourmet food as well as a silent auction of small artworks by members as well as guest artists and vendor donations. Generally a fun night.
