Miniature Artist trading Cards

Artist trading cards are miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world. Artist create, trade and collect art at "swap" events, either in person or online. It is a great way to meet other artists and share your work.  The only official rule is the size: 2.5"x 3.5".
How did the movement start?
In 1997, M. Vanci Stirnemann, a Swiss artist, created 1200 cards by hand as part of an exhibit.  On the last day, he invited others to create their own cards and trade with him during the closing reception.  After that, the movement took off as other artists organized major "swap" events!  Today, there are swaps in almost every major city around the world.

Would you like to trade with me?
 They are fun to do & trade with other artists!

Weekend Art Retreat at Dragonfly Ridge

Artists were invited back by Lin Souliere & Carl Bell for a weekend art retreat in Lion's Head, in celebration of their 5 years of Guest Cabins.
Even though, the weather did not co-operate, the torrential rains and 70km winds did not damper our paintings! Lin's art studio provided a great place to paint, share stories and enjoy more than one glass of wine.

Thanks Lin & Carl for your hospitality.... Bev, Janet & Nancy

With Every New Home, a New Painting Awaits!

260 4th Ave, Hanover, ON

This blog will reveal the growth of an Artist. With every new home and memories, the artist's growth is apparent in choices of colours and contrast.
Our home today provides a beautiful location for an Art Studio with a walk out basement providing great light for painting.
Jim and I began our marriage renting an old farm house in Chatham before buying our first home in Kitchener in 1980. Stratford was a great place to raise our children for 10 years before moving to Trowbridge, a small hamlet outside of Listowel.
I hope that you can come and visit my studio in Hanover.

2010 November Southampton Art Gallery "Highlights of the Saugeen River"

             Last November was exciting for me as an artist to exhibit a series of paintings with a common theme at the Southampton Art Gallery. I have always enjoyed kayaking down the Saugeen River and marvel the beauty along this river. Many people become blind to what’s going on around them because life is full of common place things, but to me it’s important to record these everyday things. 
Because of this enjoyment of painting, I am preparing another series "Waterfalls not far from home" which will be on display for the month of September 2011 at the Southampton Art Gallery.

Owen Sound Banner Contest 2010

Another proud moment as an Artist, was my acceptance of my image for the Owen Sound Banner Contest 2010.  “Morning Orchid” was chosen as a 2010 Owen Sound Banner in which was chosen from 216 submissions by 83 artists.

2010 Saugeen Artist Coop members

2010 Members

        I have been an active member to the Saugeen Artists Coop since it's conception in 2006 and experienced first hand of it's growth and commitment to the arts. Our local community has many talented artists who now has joined together to display their talents in upcoming Art Shows such as the 'Show & Sell' during Hanover's Sights and Sounds Festival in July.

2009 Walkerton Library Artists show

In 2009, the Walkerton Library provided local artists a beautiful location to exhibit local art. Each artist volunteered to sit during the weekends to welcome the public to view the gallery paintings.

2007 Chesley Library Art Wall "African Inspiration"

The return from a Medical Mission Trip to Ghana in 2006 inspired this Art Exhibition at the Chesley Library Art Wall. African items were displayed and a slide show presentation to the community of the Mission trip was presented by my husband, Jim and I at the library. Paintings displayed by both myself and a  Ghanian Artist, Jonathan Aggrey. During this time, the Artist Magazine "Mosiac" accepted an article of my experience in Africa and meeting with Jonathan.

2007 Walter Falls Workshop

To go somewhere inspirational with other artists and friends provides a memorable experience. In 2007, we stayed at the Walter Falls Inn and enjoyed each other's company and returned home with beautiful paintings.

2005 Art Retreat at the Dragonfly Ridge Studio, Lion's Head

Lin Souliere welcomed a group of us as first visitors to her cabins for visiting artists and tourists. Lin took us all on a pleine air painting class at two different locations along the Bruce.
Lin was my first watercolour teacher in Stratford 25 years ago and consider her as my mentor.

2004 Art Introduction to the Hanover & Walkerton Community

In 2004, I was asked by Greg Schnur to exhibit with another artist “Tim Cook” in a new Walkerton Gallery. This was my first art introduction in the Hanover & Walkerton area.

“I will never forget my first meeting with Tim and his artistic enthusiasm which still inspires me to this day.”

Welcome to my Art Blog

Hi everyone,
I am so excited to launch my new blog. I hope in the near future to replace my current Web Site to this blog. I have found that is easy to post new paintings, coming events,  past exhibitions for everyone to enjoy. When I reflect back in the last 5 years, I can see myself growing in both my personal and art life. Since moving to Hanover in 2001, I have found and connected with many artists, whom I can now call as friends.
For the posts that follow this welcome, I will be reflecting on the past snapshots of time.
 I like to welcome you to join with me in this art journey. It starts from 2004 and to the present.
:) Bev

Please leave your comments behind. I would love to hear from you.
