I am pleased to officially announce that my sister Elaine and I are having a photography show and sale for the entire month of August! If you should find yourself driving down the #2 Highway, and are about to pass Holland, MB, take a driving break and pop in to the Tiger Hills Arts Association gallery to see our show.
The theme for our gallery show is The Country In Us. Visitors can expect to see a collection of fine art photography, depicting images of home and the bits of country that we’ve discovered in other places. Elaine and I have a strong connection to the Tiger Hills area of Manitoba and find peace, restoration and beauty there. We especially enjoy introducing and sharing the area with friends… so if our gallery show gives you a reason to take a drive out to the country, we’d think that is pretty awesome.
For the month of August, the gallery is open Tuesday to Friday from 10 am to 5 pm. It is also open on Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm.
I ran in the Manitoba Marathon today, as part of a 5-person relay team, running the full 26 mile course. I ran Leg 5, which was 5.75 miles. It took me one hour, and my average pace per mile was 10:33. I was pretty pleased with that, as lately, I’ve been running closer to 12 minute miles. Our team name was “Woot! Woot!” and it sounds like we all had a pretty good run. All told, it took us 4 1/2 hours and we finished 266 out of the 392 teams. It was a gorgeous day for running, sunny but breezy and good cloud cover as the day got hotter.
This week, Elaine and I kept at it… working on planning our August gallery show. Elaine got all the writing done, plus checked into print pricing, etc. and I took our rough sketch of a layout to something a little more organized. In total, we plan to print and hang around 25 photos — visitors can expect to see a collection of fine art photography, depicting images of home and the bits of country that we’ve discovered in other places. Elaine and I find peace out there, and we hope that will come through in our exhibit.
