This is a Christmas collaboration with my favourite printmaker, Maria Moser. The church is in Wurzbrunne, Switzerland, home of her paternal ancestors. It’s printed in five colours on stonehenge.
Christmas greetings and a very early collaboration with a very young printmaker, my daughter :- )
This is an amazing collection of 130 images by 90 Artists that explores the concept of death from many, many angles in many, many media.
It’s well worth the trip to the Museum, situated between Fergus and Elora on the north river road.
Be ready to be amazed!!! This is a very well attended show for good reason; you’ll find oodles and oodles of incredible talent in a plethora of artistic disciplines.
One of the things I like about this show is that after setting up, seven hours of sun and crowds then tearing down and packing up makes the first cold draft in a nearby pub the best tasting beer of the year :- )
If you’re near Elora, ON Saturday or Sunday, pop into the show. There are a lot of talented Artists plus musicians coming.THIS WEEKEND, July 9 & 10, 2016
My print ‘The Survivors’ was one of the artworks chosen by the Guelph Museum’s exhibition of artworks related to Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, soldier/physician/poet and his poem ‘In Flanders Fields.’ They subsequently choose it for the cover of the Exhibition Catalogue.
Now the Ontario Legislature has asked to include it as one of the artworks in their Remembrance Day resources. …..my buzz du jour.
“To me the poem conjures up visions of more than poppies and crosses. I envision the other casualties of war, of the long lines of refugees and of wounded soldiers returning to their homes. I see the shells of buildings and a landscape badly scarred.
My print was for ‘The Survivors’, for those people who, having survived, were now ready to move forward towards a sparse landscape but one with a promise of better things to come.”
