Surprise! Rod Winning and Dennis Walsh

This is our first at show at a REAL art gallery. Gallery 1710, the South Delta Artists Guild gallery at 1710 56th St. Tsawwassen BC is the best little art gallery south of the Fraser.

It's a lot of work promoting the show to make sure friends, colleagues, relatives and associates attend and then to get people we don't even know yet is another task. Reception night food, entertainment, fun, painting, presentations all take time to organize. Business Cards, posters, letters, Facebook, Linkedin, Guild website, personal website, blogs, on on on

When do we actually get more paintings done, some new stuff to put in with the old paintings. Will they like them. Will Dennis's be better than mine, Will we be lonely sitting there for 9 hours a day? Well it's only a week so why not. It's a great chance to show off our work and hopefully get a few compliments. I've been busy identifying all my work with name card with prices but thought I'd put that on the back of the painting and just have a list ( catalog ) with prices so anyone could see how the prices range and check on any particular painting. I have also make up story cards so each framed painting will have a name and story. I'll have lots of unframed paintings and the matted paintings which have been put into sleeves and prices reasonably to sell. Ill have them iin tubs so anyone interested can flip through them at their leisure.

We have a lot of support from some Guild members and we're looking forward to this event.


We'd like to get discovered by someone who would ask us to show our works downtown or at least somewhere different. Maybe you're that person. Come and see our show and have some fun.
