“Emmett” at Small Feats Art Show & Sale 2019

I have been a member of the Niagara Artists Centre (NAC) and participated in the annual Small Feats Art Show & Sale since 2012.  It is always a great event, and has gotten bigger and better each year.  For the 2019 Small Feats Art Show & Sale, I decided on the theme of Farm Rescue Animals.  However, since I have been so busy with other events,  I only had time to complete one painting for Small Feats this year, but I will be continuing the series, so watch for more posts on new paintings in my series.

emmett-pig-painting-malowany“Emmett”, oil on canvas, 12″X12″, will be up for sale at the Small Feats Show on April 6th.  Emmett is one of Mae’s babies, rescued and living at Grey’s Haven Farm Sanctuary in Port Colborne. I have done a Paint Your Pet Fundraiser for Grey’s Haven, and we are planning another fundraiser event for them in May. Check out all they do and their animals on their Facebook page.

And if you have not been to Small Feats before, you have missed out! With over one hundred and twenty NAC Member artists participating who have created works of art for Niagara’s largest and most energetic art sale on Saturday 6 April at NAC in Downtown St. Catharines, you don’t want to miss it! Here are the details:

Every year NAC challenges their artist members to create fantastic visual art con­fined to an area no larger than one square foot—all for sale for $200. In 2017 NAC introduced the addition, Big Feats, with artwork varying in size and all way bigger than a square foot for sale at $800.

And 2019 brings a whole new suite of works – $50 silk screened prints hand made at the NAC Studio Shop. There’s something for every art collector at SMALL FEATS!

The annual SMALL FEATS show and sale is NAC’s largest art fundraiser and an as­sured rocking good time in beautiful downtown St. Catharines.

Every year artists respond to the call—and to the efforts and talents of their peers—and every year the show gets larger and the art gets stronger. Each of the contributing artists has generously chosen to split half or donate all of the proceeds to NAC, Niagara’s friendly neighbourhood, charitably registered artist-run centre.

See what makes Niagara a distinct place to live.

Jan. Daily Painting Day 8: “Pancake”

My Day 8 painting for the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge is “Pancake”.​ Pancake is a Vietnamese mini pot belly pig who came to our 8 acre hobby farm recently.  She is 4 months old and hangs out in my studio with the three studio cats most days, and sleeps with our 12 year old daughter each night.
