This lovely oil painting by Kim Johnston was selected from many works for this year’s Shirley Dilworth Jaychuk juried Show at Elora Art Centre. It didn’t win a prize but it was up against some pretty stiff competition! If you would like to see more of Kim’s work, come to Eight Dimensions, our inaugural show at Studio 404 in Guelph (at 404 York Road, between Victoria Road and Stevenson), over the weekend of May 2,3 and 4. The opening reception is from 7 to 9 p.m. on the Friday evening. See you there!
