U100 SHOW - Ocean Breeze

12"  x 24" Wrap Canvas
Available at U100 Show

Yes, this is over 100 sq ins! A few artists in the exhibition are allowed to submit one painting between 100 and 200 sq in and another between 200 and 300 sq in. So, here is my largest piece. One of my favourites with deep texture and swirling abstract lines. As you can see, it works well hanging either way.

In the U100 Ihave it displayed near the floor with about 25 more paintings above it, and it still shines. A stunning piece!

The U100 Show takes place every year at Lake Country Art Gallery. This year there are nearly 1,000 works under 100 square inches and priced under $100. It will take the exhibition team over a week to prepare and hang this amazing collection. 

For enthusiastic early birds, the exhibition opens Saturday 19th November. Saturday and Sunday are hectic as buyers flood in to see small works by some of the top artists in the area and red dots flow as paintings are snapped up as gifts. I will be at the gallery both afternoons to assist buyers and answer questions. 

For last minute shoppers, this year the show closes December 21st but it's best to come early. In previous years we've sold a large portion of paintings in the first few days of the show and because buyers are allowed to take paintings off the walls, we have a fresh intake of art after the first week to fill spaces. 

For buyers and volunteers alike it's a high energy and fun show.
