The Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition is less than one week away! Now in it's 52nd year, TOAE is a juried showcase of fine art, which takes place annually at Nathan Phillips Square every July. As the largest juried outdoor art exhibition in Canada, TOAE offers a fresh-air alternative to conventional art shows and galleries. Hundreds of artists participate and an estimated 100,000 visitors attend the exhibition each year.
The show begins this Friday, July 5th, and ends Sunday, July 7th. Stop by Nathan Phillips Square, and be sure to visit me at booth #40! Admission is free, and the hours are as follows: Friday & Saturday 10:30am - 7:30pm, Sunday 10:30am - 6:30pm
HERE'S WHAT TO EXPECT...
"WAKEUP! (detail)", Acrylic on Canvas, 12" x 12"
20 new paintings from the "WAKEUP!" series will be available for sale. These are each 12" x 12" (see above), and will be sold separately or as groupings. Inspired by local, independent coffee shops, these pieces have been my pride and joy over the last few weeks. They've already been selling quickly, so be sure to get downtown early next weekend and reserve your favourite!
Acrylic on Canvas, 12" x 12" each
I'll also be showing 16 new drawings of Hershey's Kisses, which will be sold at $80.00 each...framed! These hand-drawn pieces work well individually or as part of a larger grouping (I plan to create a new grouping of 16 for my own dining room). They also make incredible gifts! Stop by booth #40 and give someone a kiss.
"The Kiss", Pencil Drawings, 10" x 10" each (framed)
I'll be selling limited edition prints! To order a print online, please visit: http://www.erinrothstein.bigcartel.com/product/bagel-limited-edition-print-signed
Limited edition prints, signed. 24" x 24" unframed ($400) or 28" x 28" framed ($650).
Epson enhanced matte paper, edition of 100.
Finally, I'll be showing 2 fortune cookie paintings, and an old favourite -- the pistachios.
"Tasting Room - Fortune Cookies", Acrylic on Canvas, 20" x 20" each, $750.00 each
These are among the last fortune cookies still available. You'll have to get a little closer to read the messages.
"Tasting Room - Pistachios" Acrylic on Canvas, 36" x 36", $2,800.00
This is the last remaining pistachio painting! Is it yours?
Until Friday, I'll be the studio painting and preparing for the big event! Invite your friends and make it an artsy weekend. I hope to see you there!
