What a feeling!! . . .driving on a two lane highway in the heart of the **Boreal Forest in Northwestern Ontario, Canada with a carload of art!!!
It’s about a 200km drive one way and most of it I felt as if I were being hugged by huge snow brushed trees and gigantic boulders on either side. My destination: The Pictograph Gallery, Atikokan, Ontario. I was invited to display my works at the gallery from January 5 to February 16, 2019. The solo exhibition (77 works) is titled: GEOMETRIC ABSTRACTIONS – Common Elements: lines, shapes & colours.

I would like to extend a BIG expression of thanks and gratitude to Janice Matichuk (a local artist, Park Ranger at Quetico Provincial Park & board member of the Pictograph Gallery) who’s keen eye, and meticulous sense of colour was used to hang my works. It took my breath away! My sincere thanks Janice!!
I would also like to acknowledge funding support from the Ontario Arts Council, an agency of the Government of Ontario. (Exhibition Assistance & Accessibility Grant)
