Happy December

December arrived at Fletcherfoto with 3 days of Teeny Tiny artwork on sale by Arts Council members. The show ends Sunday Dec 5, so if you are reading the blog today you should get down and check it out as there are some wonderful small artworks for sale. The show opened with the debut of my new track lighting. What a difference good lighting makes. Thanks to Don Skerik for donating the installation labour. This was very appreciated and demonstrates the value of community sharing, a big mantra in my life. The plan now is to fix a lot of holes, slap on a fresh coat of paint and rehang my work in time for any Christmas sales.

Good news on the website front. I have finally figured out how to show my photographs in galleries linked to my website. Where before you could only see the same old small collection of images, now you can view over a thousand images in different galleries. To visit the galleries, click on image galleries in the navigation bar and, voila! your there. Please give me some feedback, it would be appreciated.

More good news on the Cowichan Art Scene is the opening of a new gallery, Points Art Gallery, just around the corner from me at 225 Canada Ave, the old location of Pacific Travel.
Owned by David Martinello (Sculptor and Furniture Maker) and Caulen Elder (Painter), the gallery is a tight white space filled with their wonderful work. I visited the other day and was very impressed with both artist's work. They have an opening "meet and greet" Thursday December 9th 4 to 7pm. Why not drop in and let them know how welcome the arts are downtown.
