Looking at Art

The plan for today's text'art meeting is a visit to the Celebration show at Galérie Beaux-Arts des Amériques, 5432 St.-Laurent in Montreal. This show features thirty paintings, all measuring 20" x 20", prompted by the gallery's tenth anniversary. My entry made it into the show, chosen by three jurors from almost sixty entries.

On a weekday morning, the space should allow for us to look closely at the works.

Here is a guideline that I found on the blog of Margaret Cooter, an English artist acquaintance of mine who posts almost daily about her everyday life, her work, her walks around London, as well as the London gallery and museum scene.  Occasionally she throws in a little poetry.

The next time you visit an art show, you too may find this guideline helpful. I hope it produces a lively discussion at today's outing.

Fingers crossed that today's weather forecast doesn't mean another cancelled excursion!
