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.
