Go and see our artwork in-person! Barboria and I each have 3 of our artworks on exhibition at Evergreen Theatre’s Canopy Gallery in Calgary. It is located at 1709 8 Avenue NE. Go and take a look and bring family and friends along, too, to see the artwork and the nice theatre space!
We have a variety of media including acrylic, oil, watercolor, and colored pencil on display at the venue as well as fun subjects such as landscapes (including the Glenmore Reservoir!), a portrait, and calligraphy!

Do you ever find yourself wondering what to do with your artwork? One idea to find a new home for your artwork is to ask your alma mater whether they would like a painting or other artwork of yours. It is a great way to give back to your university or college and a fabulous way to inspire future generations of students and artists!

Take steps each week and month to reach your personal and professional art goals in 2017! Below are some suggestions to help you get started on the right path:
1) Send out those e-mails and make those calls to prospective clients to let them know about your artwork
2) Schedule art shows and exhibitions for your artwork, photography or sculpture
3) Collaborate and work together with other artists to reach a larger audience or complete a project you have always wanted to do
Use the above ideas as starting points for assisting you in sharing your art in 2017 with your audience!
Set yourself a goal of making 2017 your most art-filled and creative year yet! Try a painting or drawing class; take music lessons; or go to the theatre for a play or concert. Whatever it is that you may like to try to grow your creative skills and abilities, take a step forward and give it a try.
We at Sunny Bay Arts look forward to helping you reach your creative and art goals in 2017! Make sure to check back regularly for upcoming exhibitions, new artwork, and art classes.
