Hudson Artists Fall Show

It's that time of year again, and for the sixth time I am pleased to hang my work at the annual Fall Show of the Hudson Artists. With twenty-three artists participating, and a wide variety of styles and mediums, it should be worth a visit. If you'd like to see my new series of mixed media 10 x 10's, this is your chance!

There will be 15 of my new "Touchstone" series
at the Hudson Artists Fall Show.

Something new this time around:

Three judges have been invited to name a Best of Show.  They are:

Christian Gonzalez, cultural activist and publisher of "Talents d'ici", 
Madeleine Turgeon, President of the Autour de Nous art group and Vice-President of the Conseil des Arts et de la Culture de Vaudreuil-Soulanges, and 
Martine Therrien, professional artist and visual arts teacher.

Another innovation

Member Judith Harvey, best known for her "old masters" style of still life oil painting, will give a one-hour demonstration of her technique on Saturday, beginning at noon. Sponsored by a grant from ELAN, this is free to both AHA members and the public.

This is a live demonstration with emphasis on classical techniques and approaches, such as 'Chiaroscuro', 'Rembrandt lighting' and 'colour palettes'. Also to be discussed, the importance of composition and lighting set-up, especially with regard to still life painting.


President John Goodger has donated a lovely painted landscape of Hudson Sandy Beach to be raffled off in support of the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Palliative Care Residence.

When and where: 

The show opens on Friday, September 30, 7 - 9 pm, and continues Saturday and Sunday, October 1 and 2, from 10 am - 5 pm. It will be held at the Stephen F. Shaar Community Centre, 394 Main Road in Hudson, Quebec.

I will make an appearance on Friday evening and will staff the greeting card sales on Sunday, beginning at 2:30 pm. I do hope to see you there!
