Pastel Society of Eastern Canada International pastel exhibition 2011

This exhibit took place at Ogilvys' Tudor Hall, Nov. 4rth-12. Yes, it was short, but 100 pastel paintings, many tours, and demonstrations happened as well. Personally, I have so much to be grateful for. First of all, my piece in the exhibit was a miracle, created in between two workshops at haliburton school of fine art this summer. A gift really. I've been teaching so much this year, and no time to play! So when El Vestido Rojo appeared at the easel, I sighed relief, because I didn't have a piece to submit to the show.
For anyone who was thinking of going, you really missed a great event, mostly free of charge and very educational.

On Sunday Oct. 30th, Ferraro art studio encountered Spooky mayhem. The afternoon was spent with paper, staples and duct tape in hand. Clothing, giant cooty catchers, body parts with coffins, a chefs' outfit, medieval knights outfit, complete with helmet and visor, sword and shield....were made....and all out of paper.....and IMAGINATION!!! Congratulations to all the budding sculptors who created like mad with me! Here's the lovely imaginative Teaghan wearing her fab creation for her upcoming career as a top hat wearing business woman!
