The Art Exhibit

20130928-ArtEx-005

 

So there were photographers and artists and musicians! Put them all together, invite the community to come and you get one word: Fun! Maybe two words: Super Fun! ๐Ÿ˜€ That’s how I would describe last night’s event. It was standing room only for most of the night which was such an incredible feeling. We never did get a head count of how many people came but it was well over 200. Access Television was also there, documenting the event. The Safe-tee management building made for a very intimate gathering space which was really neat. It made the event far more cozy and close than if it had been in a big gymnasium or a hall. It was along the lines of a Newfoundland Kitchen Party (presumably. I’ve never been. Yet.) ๐Ÿ˜‰ There was some incredibly beautiful artwork on display and for sale. There were large sculptures and paintings filled with vivid colour. And of course, the music which drew everyone like a moth to a flame. Shirley and Jim Galloway along with David Hyman rocked the set on violin, guitar and piano. I could have sat there the whole day listening to them, they were fantastic! I did lend some of my vocals to an awesome rendition of “Black Water” by the Doobie Brothers though. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย All in all it was a fabulous event. It’s so nice to be part of a community that honours the arts and wants to do more than only sports. All the free will proceeds went to the OPHS band program to further help and encourage the development of art in the tender young minds of our youths. Boo ya! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

photoOxbow is having an art exhibition tomorrow September 28 at 7PM at Safe-tee Management. It’s going to be exciting! A few of us local area photographers have stuff to display as well as artists and musicians. Entry to the event is free will offering with all proceeds going to the OPHS Band Program. This is the first event of its kind for Oxbow as far as I can tell. I hope everyone can come out and take part, it’s going to be a metric tonne of fun! ย I’m showing 12 large prints under the theme of “People of the Living Skies.” It shows a variety of environmental portraits I’ve done over the years featuring our awesome Saskatchewan prairie skies. Don’t miss it! ๐Ÿ˜Žpotls
