Gates are symbolic of so many things.  They represent any portal into a new place, a new life, a new adventure.  We know what is on this side of the gate.  We may not know what we will find when we open the gate and step through.

This week, I am stepping through a gate, by taking the first step toward showing my paintings to the general public.  I have submitted one of my ‘gate’ paintings (‘rainbow gate in Falmouth’), for showing and sale, to Isaac’s Way at 649 Queen Street in Fredericton, New Brunswick.

Isaac’s Way is a fine dining restaurant  as well as an art gallery.  Since 2007, they have held 19 showings and auctions of the work of local artists.  Paintings are shown in the restaurant and sold by silent auction.  A large part of the money raised from the sale of the paintings goes to sponsor a charity.  The auction ending January 26, for example, will go to help enable underprivileged children to take winter music lessons.  For more information and for a look at the art in the most recent showing (ending January 26th, 2014 at 9:00 PM) go to  http://isaacsway.ca/art/

If you are in the Fredericton area, I encourage you to visit Isaac’s Way, to see the paintings and enjoy the comfortable atmosphere and delicious menu items.
