U100 SHOW - White Mountain II

10" x 10" Wrap Canvas
Available at the U100 Show

This painting used to be part of a triptych, but one piece sold, so I've split up the two remaining pieces which are just as nice on their own. I've reworked this painting slightly, adding some trees to the foreground. The sister painting, White Mountain III, is in my solo exhibition at BLENZ in Westbank, B.C. They still work well as a diptych or pair, so you can take a nice drive throug the valley and pick up both.

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.
