I've been happy to see this show grow since I first popped up my tent there. This year's show boasts 40 artists creating in various mediums. Main Street in Schomberg, Ontario will be closed for the day making it easy to get personal with the artists and spend time perusing their work. I've met some wonderful people at this show, many of whom have become my clients and friends.
This year, I'll be bringing prints and cards with me as always, but I'll be showing new original paintings. Aniline dyes in reds, blues, greens and many other colours on wood panel are something new I've been working on. Using dyes allows the grain to show through and do they every make my funky building pop. I love the effect! Applying the gloss topcoat has been a bit of a nightmare, but the results have been worth it. Here's a sneak preview of one of my new pieces that you'll find at the SSG this year titled Saturn.
I'm going to have a figurative piece at the SSG this year as well. This is something new I've been working on. I don't want to spoil the surprise so there won't be any sneak previews of it before the show. If you can't make it, check out my Eva Folks - Artist Facebook page on Sunday to see the painting and follow along with what I'm up to at the show.
Hope you can make it out to the SSG this year. I'll be in booth #19 just south of the Schomberg Community Hall. Make sure to stop by and say hello!
