July 13, 2010 – Oh I can’t believe I just wrote that cheesy title. There you have it – the humidity has made me obnoxiously silly. Oh dear…That all being said if you are obsessed with eggs (Yes, there is a big egg fan club), then you will love one of our newest artists, Annie Abdalla.
Annie takes what are perceived to be ordinary and everyday objects and studies them. Lately Annie has been egg-samining (ok, I’ll stop) eggs. I make light with my ridiculous play on words when really these renditions of eggs so far from ridiculous. Annie’s eggs are thoughtful and contemplative and so very lovely. Her studies include oil paintings on canvas, acrylic on board and panel, and encaustic pieces.
Annie has an MFA in Interdisciplinary Art from Goddard College and a Masters in Environmental Studies from York University as well as having studied at Naropa University and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design.
There will be an opening to fete Annie Abdala and her eggs on Friday, July 16 from 5 pm – 7 pm. Please feel free to stop by, meet the artist, enjoy some refreshments (egg related? you can count on it.) and pick up a free treasure made by the artist.
