The Hudson Artists will stage their annual fall show November 17 - 19 at the Hudson Community Centre, 394 Main Road in Hudson, QC. The vernissage will be on the Friday evening, 7:30 - 9:30 pm; hours for Saturday and Sunday are 10 am - 5 pm. This show usually includes a good variety of media: watercolour, acrylic, oil, pastel, collage, "mixed" and fibre.
I will attend the show BUT my plan to show three of my newest pieces at this show has been waylaid. As my friend and fellow artist Helena Scheffer has said, in consolation, "Heather, you can't dance at every wedding."
The following weekend is the opening of the Small Works show at one of Hudson's new galleries, Galérie A's Secondemain at 524 Main Road. I will be one of ten artists showing small pieces, perfect for holiday gifting. I plan to exhibit some acrylic collages from my Touchstone series, and maybe some small cityscapes, and will definitely be at the opening on Friday evening, November 24.

I continue to have work on display at Café Mikko, 403 Main Road in Hudson. At this time, three of my Cityscapes in monochrome black-grey-and-white are showing in this lively café-boutique.

Rigaud Library, opening November 29
Tribute to Leonard Cohen, a group show that will be staged at the Rigaud Library, opens on November 29 and continues into January. A vernissage is planned for Saturday, December 9, 1 - 3 pm. The library is at 102 rue St-Pierre, in Rigaud, and hours can be found on their website.
More than a dozen artists have collaborated to put together this show. Our works, in a variety of media, are inspired by the words in Cohen's Anthem,
"There is a crack in everything.That's how the light gets in."

And in January I will have a solo show at Galérie Carlos, in Montreal's Old Brewery Mission, 902 Blvd. St.-Laurent. This will be an opportunity to show off more works in my new series of hand-dyed linen. Details to follow!
