    "Canadians may bemoan our endless winter but we know, deep down we have a pride in our stamina and awe in the beauty we experience, on crisp mornings after a snow storm."

    The Agnes Jamieson Gallery, Minden Hills ON, the community adjacent to where many of us painted in "A Brush with the Highlands", is having a free, juried show with a January 9, 2015 deadline.

    The curator is a lovely person.

    You can get an entry form from then "arts and culture"

    then "art gallery"

    then "exhibitions".

    Hi Ted, I would love to apply, especially because it is free, but delivering selected painting could be a problem.

    I'm sending mine by Canada Post and we can split the cost if you want.

    I am putting mine together but with a Friday deadline to get it mailed to them I may not make it.

    John and Maria

    I just spoke to Laurie (Jan 6, 11:55) and she says the entry form, image and artist's statement should be emailed by Jan 9 and the jurors will meet Jan 16.  Assuming that they give their decision Jan 18 or so, we can arrange a drop off of the physical work at my place or you can ship yourself from Hamilton by Canada Post.  They will return ship and we can also cut costs for them if we package multiple paintings.

    This is a cross Canada competition, with entries from all over Canada, including installations.

    Regards, Ted

    I thought that they had to be there by tomorrow so I just spent $25 to ship my information overnight to them.  That will teach me to pay attention here. I don't think that it was money well spent because I suspect they will have a lot of very good submissions but nothing ventured nothing gained.

    Hi Ted

    I would love to drive up to my cottage on Big Hawk and on the way drop off 4 small oils to contribute to your show. Let me know as I need to gas up.

    That's very kind of you and totally unexpected.

    Let's wait and see if they accept any of John, Maria's or my work and we will talk later.  BTW, I hope you entered too!!

    Regards. Ted

    My parents have a home on Paudash Lake which is about half an hour east of Minden so I see it as a good excuse to head up there and paint in an area that I love.

    Good luck everyone.

    Ted and John,

    I got a email from The Agnes Jamieson Gallery and my painting is being accepted.

    Saw the previous discussion and I would like to join someone else to send my painting and share the cost.

    Please let me know if there is any decision regarding this.

    Hi Ted,

    Thank you! This is my way of thinking and I am not sure if I am right :

    They would try to select a broad representation of artistic form, style and media for the show.

    Art that approached the theme with originality.
