I never learn to drive and live in the city, I use the public transit everywhere. Whenever I decide on a show to exhibit my art, public transit is part of my consideration. I avoid all those shows too far or too difficult to get to.
Two of my watercolor paper cut paintings was accepted into the OCADU (Ontario of Art and Design University) Alumni Exhibition at the Gladstone hotel. One of the reasons I enter was the location was easy for me to get there with my framed paintings. There is a streetcar stop just steps from my studio which would take me right in front of the hotel.
Mid morning the traffic was light and there was plenty of empty seats on the streetcar, fifteen minutes later, I was right in front of the hotel.
I was given a catalogue of the show; When I checked on the list of artists and was surprised none of the people from my graduating year was in. I don’t know any of the artists in the show!
