Here I am, awaiting all the visitors to Art for the Heart on Feb. 3, the third annual fundraiser for the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. The Cedarhill Golf Club was a great venue and guests had plenty of room to move around and enjoy the displays. I met lots of old friends and made some new ones.
Mark your calendars for this third annual fundraising art show and sale for the Ottawa Heart Institute. The event takes place at the Cedarhill Golf & Country Club, a new venue this year, 56 Cedarhill Drive (off Cedarview Road) in Nepean, 10 am to 5 pm. Last year I exhibited only a few paintings in the show but this year I will have a full booth of my new oils. I look forward to seeing you there.
I participated in “Art for the Heart”, an exhibition of art and a fundraiser for the University of Ottawa Heart Institute on Sunday, February 20, 2011 in Barrhaven. Approximately 250 people visited the show. The Heart Institute was very pleased with the amount they received in donations, and the commission from the 9 artists. This may become an annual event. Beth and I got first class assistance from our son, Bill, his wife, Joanna and our granddaughters, Sophia and Helena who were visiting us for Winterlude from New Hampshire. This was the first time the family were with us for the setting up of an exhibition. The girls demonstrated great skills as art installers and were able to make solid suggestions for improvements in the overall appearance of my booth. It was a fun day and we enjoyed meeting the many visitors.
