Eye Had a Good Time


Me (centre) at Eye for Art, Thames Art Gallery.

Eye for Art on November 19th was great, as usual.
About 200 people showed up to celebrate the work of Chatham-Kent artists.
The art work, in my opinion, keeps getting better and better!
This year, there were many new artists represented on the wall.
This is a good thing, as it means artists are becoming more and more
brave about putting their work before a juror.  And it means that
they are ready to admit that they ARE artists.
The People's Choice Award was given to a man who has just moved to
Chatham-Kent, and he can't be any more than 25 years old!
Hopefully he will think about joining ARTspace
I will be serving my last month as Chair in December. The gentleman to my left 
in the photo, Scott Livingstone, will hopefully agree to be Chair of 
the ARTspace/Thames Art Gallery Advisory Board for 2017.
It has been an eventful year at ARTspace, and it felt satisfying to welcome all 
those supporters to Eye for Art as one of my last duties.
The ARTspace Advisory Committee has accomplished 
a lot in the past 8 years, but we have more work to do.
We are growing. 
Change is good. 
Peace out.
