Lots going on in the park today - boats launching and the parking lot filling up with very hot cyclists - it seemed like hundreds of paramedics on a charity bike ride, and other large groups of cyclists too. At one point they all jumped into the lake to cool down and take a group photo. Many peeked into the show but few squelched across to see the pictures. However, our show's opening reception was well attended by family, friends, and new viewers and we were kept busy hanging up new paintings to replace the ones that were sold. The food was great and the music by the Hoolies was delightful. I hope next weekend is just as much fun (and maybe a little bit cooler in temperature!)
Yesterday TIFAA members brought a wonderful selection of paintings to the 1000 Islands Visitor Centre at Mallorytown Landing for the 2018 show, and then the dedicated hanging committee worked all afternoon to create an interesting and exciting show. The decorating committee did an outstanding job. We hope to have many visitors this weekend, and the show will continue on the weekend of September 22 and 23.
First, the admiring and consulting...
...and the hanging...
Nancy Paul, formerly a member of TIFAA, invites all TIFAA members and their friends to the opening of her show at ART NOISE in Kingston.
On August 9, a beautiful, sunny day, the Plein Air Group painted at the Gananoque Marina. So many subjects to choose, so little time...
Belia is busy working toward the show in September...
Hey other TIFAA Members - send Martha photos of the work you are preparing!
The Visual Artists of Gananoque Association (VAGA) celebrated its 25th anniversary yesterday in its beautiful new permanent gallery on King Street in Gananoque. Several members of TIFAA are also members of VAGA and were present at the reception (sorry, Cathie, that I didn't get a photo of you while you were there.)
