Salmagundi Club's annual juried exhibition in New York

I am so excited to announce that my painting "Symbiosis" was accepted into the Salmagundi Club's annual juried exhibition in New York. The Salmagundi Club was established in 1871. Matthew Innis wrote a great post about it on his blog, Underpaintings. This spring the Salmagundi Club presented its 4th American Masters show which included work by Jeremy Lipking, David Kassan, Nancy Guzik, Rose Frantzen and and many other wonderful painters. The exhibition that my painting will be included in runs from August 8th- 19th, with an awards banquet on the 19th.

Exhibition at BiBO in Nelson, BC

Next Thursday will be the vernissage for an exhibition of my recent paintings at BiBO (518 Hall Street) in my hometown, Nelson, BC. The show will be comprised of a number of my recent figurative works as well as selected landscapes and still-lifes. The vernissage is from 4:30pm - 5:30, hope to see you there!

Two Upcoming Portrait Painting Workshops

I have two upcoming workshops that I will be teaching this month. One will be held in Nelson, BC from August 11th to 13th, and the other will be held in Lake Country (near Kelowna, BC) August 25th to 27th.

These three day portrait painting workshops will center on the experience of painting from life. Each day will include a demonstration, discussion and individual instruction at the easel. Discussions will include proportion and structure of the head, stages to developing a painting, as well as form, shape, value, colour, edges, balance, unity, harmony, light and modeling with colour temperature.

Here's the full write-up for the Nelson one. For more information about either workshop, email Bev at
