Exhibition Weekend - A Great Time

HI Everyone, this weekend was the exhibition at the Galerie de la Rive. There was a great turn out and everyone was raving about it. On Saturday it was the artist Demo Day. Many of us were there doing painting demonstrations. There was loal portrait Artist Olaf Krassnitzky present doing portraits. I had a wonderful time working on my Calla Lilly painting.

Some pictures from the Demo:

My colourful art cards - My cards are now being sold directly from my studio at 5 blank cards with envelopes for $10.00 If anyone is interested in purchasing my art cards please contact me by email: lalorenz@sympatico.ca
Sunday was the big Vernisage and it was just wonderful. We had a huge turn out. We had a live jazz band present, along with some wonderful wine and canapes. Again the portrait Artist was also present. The gallery also hosted an Art Contest sponsored by Caisse populaire Trillium, with whom the Gallery has now established a permanent partnership. Every primary school in Clarence-Rockland was invited to participate. My family even drove down from Montreal to share in my big day. I met lots of new interesting people and sold many of my art cards.
