Well, that was a fun opening! Thank you to everyone who came out, especially those of you who made the trek from out of town. It was great to see you, hear the positive comments, and be buoyed by the support!
Also, thank you to David Hatch for taking on my art, and for the excellent presentation of my work by giving them space to breathe and shine in your fantastic gallery space. You are creating an oasis for accessing art by some of Canada's most interesting professional artists (if I do say so myself).
The show is up until the end of October - if you missed the opening and feel like an autumn drive into beautiful Prince Edward County.
Welcome to my Website. It is, and always will be, a work in progress. On most of the pages I will feature images of my work. In this Blog section I will write about things that are on my mind, such as news about exhibitions and events I think people should know about - including my exhibitions.
I am happy to announce that I am participating in two exhibitions this September - one solo and one group.
Landmarks is a solo show at Hatch Gallery (8 Stanley St., Bloomfield, Ontario). The opening reception will be on September 12, 2020 and the show will run until the end of October, 2020. Details on the opening reception will be announced closer to the date as the gallery navigates the changing Covid19 situation.
Unity Road Studio Group is a group show at the Window Art Gallery (647a Princess @ Victoria, Kingston, Ontario). This exhibition has been organized by Mark Laundry and features the works of the four artists who share the Unity Road Studios in Glenburnie, Ontario. The artists are: Mark Laundry, Ann Clarke, Mark Birksted, and Ben Darrah. The four of us share a space and respond to each other's work, while doing distinctly different work in painting and sculpture. The exhibition will be installed August 31, and will be up for the month of September. Stay-tuned for opening reception information.
Thank you for reading this far. I look forward to hearing from you.
Cheers! - Ben
