Solo Show at Collins Studio Gallery

This exhibition features the body of work I’ve been developing since January. I am so thrilled to share with you the results of months of hard work! In these paintings, I explore both realistic and expressive depictions of the sky to investigate freedom and passing time in our lives. This exhibit will feature artwork priced for every budget.

How to Get There:

  • Collins Studio Gallery is a new facility and may not have their exterior sign finished yet. They are located around the corner from the Carrot Cafe, beside the barbershop.
  • Parking is available on the street out front, and on 118 avenue. Carpooling is always a good idea.

Other Helpful Information:

  • If you plan to make it a night on the town, there are many restaurants in the area, including Somali, Indian, and Portuguese.

What do I do at an opening?

A lot of people feel uncertain attending art events because they don’t know what to expect. Luckily, an opening is an easy event to go to! Here’s what you can expect:

  • Lots of art on the walls
  • Snacks
  • Some people hanging out

What do I do when I get there?

  • Eat the food. Seriously. It’s not poisoned đŸ˜‰
  • Look at all the art on the walls
  • Chat with people you know, and make some new friends too

It’s ok to ask the artist questions about their work: we are always growing and learning, and questions from viewers are important!

Some other helpful info:

  • Show up whenever you can: you don’t need to be there right at the start
  • Leave whenever you like: you don’t need to stay the whole time
  • What to wear? You can dress up a little if you like but it’s totally ok to be comfy and casual too. Jeans are fine, pjs generally not.
  • If you have a friend that likes art, bring them along too!

Last but not least, if you can’t make it to the opening, you can always drop in at a time that works for you. The artist won’t necessarily be there, but there is usually a guest book where you can leave them an encouraging note.
