This past weekend Catherine Fields and I went to Kelowna to participate in a large group show at Sopa Fine Arts. The exhibition is entitled U8 and is the 6th annual. Deborah the owner has a great eye for abstract art and encourages emerging artists from across the continent to participate in this show. Not only were Catherine and I happy to meet other artists (Sue McCarrell of Osoyoos in the photo with us) pursuing dreams like ours, we were pleasantly surprised by the variety and interest in abstract works. I particularly enjoyed works by fellow Canadians Margaret Glew of Toronto and Anne-Laure Djaballah of Montreal.
