Artist in Residence Pt 1- Day 1 - Mill Pond Gallery, Richmond Hill

The OPEN window
 I started my first of two artist in residence weeks at the Mill Pond Gallery yesterday. This site is a house now used as the home of the RHGA: Richmond Hill Group of Artists. I am a new member.

Lucky for me, they decided to try an Artist in Residence program over the summer to coincide with the Mill Pond Concert series across the street at the (yep) Mill Pond.

The Gallery is given over to the artist or artists to display their work and to make work. For me, it is an opportunity to simply see my work. I have one small wall in my studio, to see my artwork. It took me the whole day to transport, and install my work. The labels are done for the downstairs area but much is left to do upstairs. I'll spend some of the (short) day today doing that but have to begin my work today.

My plans for the week including carving a block a day for my residency and making a multi-image print representing my time here. In addition I will start my next large scale suburban-themed woodcut and a large scale painting. Topic still to be decided. These projects will continue into my second residency at the end of the month.


funny stuff all upstairs
This is a real treat. I have searched my archives and on display are all my big pieces. Some new, some old. It feels like a retrospective and a new start at the same time.
