Friday June 29, 2012 marked the long anticipated reception and grand opening of the Arts Country Juried Exhibition. This show represents the work of artists from 5 counties in Southwestern Ontario, and is held at the Norfolk Arts Centre in Simcoe Ontario. Click here for a map of the gallery:

The exhibition runs from June 29-August 30, 2012. Along with offering an official welcome to the public, last Friday’s reception provided the forum from which the winners of the juried art competition were officially announced. Three winners were chosen from a talented pool of artists from Brant, Elgin, Middlesex, Norfolk and Oxford Counties. I am happy to announce that my painting ‘Rock 2’ was selected for an award and cash prize which was presented to me during the reception.

Both paintings will remain at the gallery for the duration of the exhibition and are available for purchase. Please contact the gallery for more information about the artists, their work and sales related queries:

    Reblogged this on Douglas McGlynn – a wee fireside chat and commented:
    Hi everyone,
    I just thought I would re-blog Laurie-Lynn’s latest blog post as I feel that this event was a very important break-through in her career as an artist. I have always felt that her work would eventually make some “waves” in the art community. Congratulations on your perseverance Laurie-Lynn. The award is further recognition of your amazing talent. Hopefully this will provide the extra inspiration to continue on a path that would leave the art world a little empty if you didn’t share your passion and vision with the world.
    I will always support you in your endeavors.
