A few weeks ago, I had the honour of being selected to participate in The Robert McLaughlin Gallery‘s annual RMG Exposed Photography Auction and Fundraiser show. I donated a 13×19 print of my Audrey Moment photo, which I was very pleasantly surprised to find out had also won the Best Conceptual / Non-Representation prize sponsored by Waddington’s! My piece was also featured in the live auction portion of the show, which was a fun new experience for me. I didn’t catch who ended up winning the auction, but I hope my Audrey is off to a good home!

 

The RMG always puts on a fun and elegant event, making it a little different each year. Unfortunately I got too wrapped up in looking at the art exhibits and taking photos of everything to really enjoy the {delicious, I’m sure} food and the fun little photobooth they had set up.

I didn’t plan it, but I ended up wearing my hair in the same style I had in my photo, so a lot of people recognized me throughout the evening. It was sort of a funny icebreaker and as a result I ended up chatting with a lot more people than I normally would. Being that I don’t know many people from the Oshawa gallery circle, it was a nice change!

 

Thank you so much to the RMG staff, the jury, my fellow featured artists, and all of the wonderful sponsors for making yet another great, successful event! Always a pleasure to participate. 🙂
