Parksville Show – New Works – September, 2016

It’s been a busy Summer with our move to Abbotsford taking front & centre stage. Finally, we are getting a bit settled in our new home, but it’s been quite a huge endeavour.  I don’t want to move again for a very long time!

In the midst of everything going on, I managed to paint a new series that I’m very excited to exhibit this month in Parksville.  I am installing my show at the McMillan Arts Centre on Sunday, Sept. 5th, and it will be on exhibit until October 3rd.  Here is a sneak peek of my new series “Seasons of Reflection”……

The Best in Show…..

I am so blessed to have such amazing collectors (and friends / family) to support me!  The Deer Lake Gallery Opening Reception was a HUGE success, and really it had very little to do with the artwork 🙂  (And even less to do with me).  I had some very special people SHOW UP and bless me.

The BEST IN SHOW….that is all of you!  I am humbled and grateful 🙂      And I should have posted this a few weeks ago, but what can I say……I am an artist! xo

Sneak Peek ….. great book ….. Forever Friends

Today I set up my show at the Deer Lake Gallery in Burnaby.  The opening reception is on Saturday May 14th from 2-4pm.  The exhibit will hang until June 4th.  Here’s the link for directions, gallery hours, etc…. “Capturing the Essence” Jenn Williamson & Irma Soltonovich

I have to share the greatest book I’ve listened to lately. I subscribe to audible.com, and I listen to all kinds of inspiring books.  Chris Guillebeau’s “Born for This” book came across my radar a few weeks ago while I was listening to “The Ziglar Show” (one of my favourite podcasts).  I would highly recommend this book to anyone that wants to live a purposeful life.

Last but not least, Forever Friends…….. I have a few of them.  They are the most precious gift.  Yesterday I touched base with one of them, and I was reminded of the fact that there is nothing as precious as a the people we love – family, friends and, as an artist, my fans & supporters (all of you!).  I am humbled and honoured to be so encouraged on this journey.  Thank you to all of you who make it so rewarding & precious.

Artexpo New York 2016 – just a few days away!

Just 3 more sleeps until I leave for New York.  I can’t believe the time has finally come. Here are my paintings all wrapped up & ready to be sent to New York….

And here is the custom-built Art Crate they are travelling to New York in – on the back of a truck. Praying for a safe and timely delivery so I can get them all hanging in time for the Show Opening on April 14th!
More pics to follow once I get my paintings installed! Thanks for your support and interest – this is such an exciting time and I’m honoured that you are sharing in my journey.

See you in New York!

One month from today …..

My New York Show will be over!   It will be an amazing experience to exhibit my work on such a large stage.

I’ll be showing several new series for the first time ever, and I’m excited to see how people respond.  Here is a sneak peek…..a few of the many layouts I have been working on for the past month:

Right 4' Wall NY 800     4' Outside Wall NY

Stay tuned for highlights of the show & my time in New York. If you don’t already follow me on Facebook, you might want to as I hope to do a few live video feeds during the show. Here’s the link, if you’d like to connect with me on FB: https://www.facebook.com/jennwilliamsonartist/

Thanks for your support & encouragement – as always (and even more than ever) – I couldn’t do this without you! 🙂

New York Art Show!

Yes, it’s really happening.  My artwork will be exhibited in New York in April, 2016.

I’ll admit I’m a little bit excited, very honoured, and I might not sleep tonight.  I’ve never had such a big goal ahead of me, but I believe any worthwhile pursuit should be a little bit scary, and very exciting.

I hope you’ll join me in my journey as I prepare for an exciting year ahead.  Thank you for your support & encouragement —- I could not have done this without all of you!

Thanks for a wonderful Reception!

I can’t believe it’s been a week since the opening reception at Hycroft! I meant to post something much sooner, but Easter weekend was very busy.

A big thanks to my family, friends, collectors & students who attended the reception, as well as to the great folks I met for the first time.  It is always special for me to share my art with new viewers, and to experience the delightful responses many have to my paintings.
