Art by the lake

If you live in or near Montreal, I hope you’ll be able to join me next weekend (September 6 & 7) at Art by the Lake, the annual outdoor show of the Lakeshore Association of Artists. It’s at quite an amazing location — 50 artists set up on the lakeside grounds of Stewart Hall in Pointe Claire — and a wonderful way to spend an early September afternoon.

This will be my second year taking part in the show and hopefully this year will be easier than last when the wind blowing off the lake was fierce. It took all my strength to keep my canopy from flying away and knocking down all my paintings in the process. As with all the shows that the LAA puts on, a portion of the proceeds will go to a worthy cause — in this case a scholarship for a  John Abbott College art student. The show runs from 10 am to 5 pm on both days so please come out to say hello and see all the wonderful artists in our group.
