I Found Many Arts: One of a Kind Haul
The Covet Garden team is giving a presentation at the One Of A Kind Spring Show & Sale this Sunday. I went yesterday to preview and to prepare for our talk, an I bought way too much art. Here is my haul:
Above, a woodblock print called A Twist of Capelin by St. John’s Graham Blair. We wrote about his work at the Holiday OOAK and I promised that if I had money I would come back and get a capelin print for my dad. Well guess who got paid on Monday?
I also got two small acrylic on paper studies from Toronto artist Mike Ormsby. I was going to get just the moose, but I can’t resist a bear. “That’s good because I’m Bear Clan,” said Ormsby who is Anishinaabe. He signs his work W’Daw b’wae, which is the name given to him by Anishinaabe elder Art Solomon.
I also got a small oil and transfer on board by Tony Taylor. It depicts Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Toronto Mayor Rob Ford with raccoon heads. So much great art for under $100! If I hadn’t run out of money, I’d’ve bought even more. Maybe I’ll get lucky and find a couple of $20 bills between now and Sunday
