Hi Everyone

Just a head's up that I am in my final week of residency at the Coast Hotel on Kingston near Fisherman's Wharf.  It has been a fun filled 3 weeks, meeting people, chatting about the artistic process, sharing travel stories, catching up with friends etc.  I hope you have all had a great summer and I for one am looking forward to a slower pace after a very busy summer.  I will be taking down the show Saturday, Sept. 30 and would love to see you before then or if there is any information you would like on your favorite piece, give me a shout  www.annebowen.ca or bowena@shaw.ca

 

  

 

I hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying the cooler weather.  Just a short note to let you know that I will be setting up at the Coast Hotel, 146 Kingston Street, near Fisherman's Wharf and painting in the lobby for the month of September.  I will be displaying 45 works through out the lobby and dining areas.  Work can also be viewed at www.annebowen.ca but it would be lovely to see you in person.  I will be away at a retreat September 7 - 11 (paintings will remain hanging) otherwise I hope to be at the hotel most days from 11:00 - 4:00).

 

      

 

Good Morning Everyone

Just a gentle reminder that I will be hosting an open studio art show and sale in my garden as part of the Scattered Artists Tour.  My address is 3735 Ascot Drive, north end of the Cedar Hill Golf Course.  Lots of parking at King's Pond.  The garden looks gorgeous and I have lots of paintings on sale to make room for more art.  Come for a visit tomorrow or Sunday (May 19 & 20, 11:00 - 4:30).  For those of you who are out of town, or can not make the tour, please email for pricing if there is any piece you may be interested in. www.annebowen.ca 

 

   

Happy Spring everyone

Once again artists in the Cedar Hill Golf Course area will be hosting their annual open studio tour.  I will be displaying my artwork (many of which will be significantly discounted to make way for even more art) in my half acre garden.  The tour runs Saturday, May 19 and Sunday May 20 from 11:00 - 4:30.  My address is 3735 Ascot Drive, lots of parking at King's Pond.  Please keep your fingers crossed for good weather, failing which the art work will be moved to the garden shed.

 

        

I hope everyone is well and truly launched into a healthy, happy and productive new year.  Opus Art Supplies has invited me to do two demonstrations at their location on Harold Street on March 4.  I will be painting with transparent acrylic paint with an occasional lapse using more opaque paint, to create glowing color with subtle value transitions.  The two demos are free but registration is required due to limited space.  For further information visit opusartsupplies.com.   Hope to see you there.  Paintings can be viewed at www.annebowen.ca

 

 

        

 

 

I hope you have all had a lovely and restful summer.  Just a short note to let you know I will be showing new works at the Main Art Gallery at the Cedar Hill Rec Centre for the month of November.  Please drop by and bring a friend.  Enjoy all the colors of fall and don't forget to kick some leaves.  More work can be viewed at www.annebowen.ca
