Exhibit Continues at Annandale House

I remembered to take my camera last week, so I thought I would post a few photos of the exhibit in Tillsonburg.  Also, in my last post I didn’t give you the closing date for the exhibit!  It will be there until September 10.

There are no cameras or photo-taking allowed in the museum, but they were nice and made an exception for me to photograph my own art.

The museum itself is a gorgeous place to visit. It was the home of the Tillsons.

A few years back I participated in a show there called ‘Wildely Inspired’.   Annandale’s decor was inspired by the Aesthetic Movement, and Oscar Wilde.  We were allowed, as artists, to have the treat of photographing inside the museum, to inspire art pieces we then created for the show.  My unusual piece Wilde Life was what I entered in the show back then – it is a strange imaginary scene, sort of a collage of elements (but all watercolour painted on gessoed paper) from the stained glass windows and ceilings, etc., of the house.  Very different from what I usually do!

For museum hours, please refer to my previous post.  Thanks for reading!
