Art Renewal Center’s International 2008/2009 ARC Salon

My painting, "Stephanie Profile," was selected as one of the top one hundred finalists in the Art Renewal Center’s International 2008/2009 ARC Salon! It was judged to be among the best out of 1,600 plus entries received from around the world, and an image of it will be featured on their website website, as well as being reproduced in their full color catalogue.

The Canadian Portrait

On Sunday, the Canadian Portrait opened at the Cube Gallery in Ottawa. So I guess it's official, with my work being included in two simultaneous shows on the theme of The Canadian Portrait, the portrait is finally getting more attention in Canada. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to attend, but my friend Jessica Borutski did, and took some photos of the reception for us. The exhibition runs March 4 through April 5th.

The Canadian Portrait: Today and Tomorrow Reception

Last night was the reception for The Portrait Society of Canada’s The Canadian Portrait: Today and Tomorrow exhibition, which is being held at the John B. Aird Gallery in Toronto March 3 - 27. It was a fun night with a good turnout. My sister Jessica Gordon (awesome illustrator) and Adam Cialini (artist and musician) joined me at it. Adam was nice enough to take these pictures for us:) I had kinda insisted on taking flash-less photos at first until he cleaverly figured out that the flash was actually pretty much necessary for the lighting situaltion that night. So that's why we're mostly all in the dark until the end;)

Awww, me and Adam in front of Kate Stone's beautiful self-portrait

Best sister in the world.

I know I'm making a silly face in this one (I'm talking) but I like the fact that you can see us in it so I thought I'd stick it up too;)

This was near the end of the night when almost everyone had left, but it shows you a bit more of the exhibition;)
