I will be setting up next week for a two-month showing of about 16 pieces in the Milton Room, Town Hall in Milton. The work will be available for viewing starting Thursday, May 26 and will be up until the end of July.

The Milton Room is used by Milton Town staff and others for official meetings and public get-togethers. It is a beautiful room right inside the new Town Hall on Mary Street in downtown Milton.

As a matter of fact, the Annual General Meeting of the Fine Art Society of Milton will e held on Thursday, May 25th at 7:00pm in tat room!

I am excited about displaying several new pieces, some pieces from the AM Gallery and from the Gallery Upstairs at Harrop Restaurant.

Jazzin' Art at Gallery Upstairs at The Harrop Restaurant

A great time was had by all last night at the first 'Jazzin' Art' event hosted by the Gallery Upstairs at Harrop Restaurant on Steeles Avenue in Milton.

There were about 50+ visitors meeting and greeting four local artists including John Harrington, Marlene Kawalez, Tina Newlove and myself. Artist/Musician Kelly McIntyre entertained on the keyboard and microphone.

Wine and nibbles were served and despite the rain, people really enjoyed the few hours together at the gallery.

The next one is scheduled for Friday, June 3rd. All are welcome to hear and see some great local talent/art in Milton.

Newest Painting Finished and Showing at the Gallery Upstairs at Harrop Restaurant

Completed my latest 'miniature painting (8" x 10"). It is called "Autumn River" and was inspired by my larger "Glimpse of the River" that I painted last year. This little painting is already sold but is hanging at the gallery.
