ARC salon show in Barcelona, attending an award ceremony in MEAM

I finally took a vacation, I have been workaholic past few months, and went to Spain to attend the ARC salon show and the award ceremony in MEAM, Museo Europe di Arte Moderna, in Barcelona.

My quick report of Day 1

My quick report of Day 2

And here are photos from ARC.

And MEAM uploaded the video!

Barcelona was very festive mood, because of La Merce, big ocean, mild weather, my flight landed on the airport nicely and I was happy and already excited to be there.


Good food!


Spanish art!

And Gaudi!!!!

The show in MEAM will be on until November 26! If you are in Barcelona, please drop by, there are top-notch works to check out! 😀

Thank you for coming to our Vernissage!

My first show in the city of Ottawa gallery has just started yesterday! Because of the strange weather this Summer, I was worry about the thunder rain. But luckily, no rain and sunny all day. Here is the video I took before the party start.

Yes! I fixed that crooked goldfish painting! XD Ha ha ha. I put 17 paintings all together. 😀 Because there were 7 shows open together last night, there were many people and I got good feedbacks from guests. 😀

The show will run until August 22nd. If you are in the area, please check it out! 🙂

My next show will be ARC’s traveling salon show in Barcelona in September. And as far as I know, 2 small shows in 2018. Still a lot of time, so keep on painting! XD

ARC Salon show in New York

I was lucky enough to be a finalist last year, but I was also asked to participate in the ARC’s traveling salon show this year. The first show was in the Salmagundi club, New York.

I attended the private opening night on May 12 and the public opening on 13th. Due to the awful delay of the flight (delayed almost 3hrs) and the taxi driver who was not listening to me…. I almost missed it!… I arrived at the club at 7:30 pm (close at 8pm), jumped out from the taxi and rushed into the building, so I could meet people…

The Salmagundi club is located in the downtown Manhattan (5th ave & 12th st), a very cool historical institute, the ground floor is a dining room and the walls are covered by antique paintings and sculptures. Main floor is the gallery, and the 2rd floor has small rooms to use for classes and events and also covered by the antique paintings and old palettes of the artists.

I met Ms. Kara Ross and her family. Kara helped me a lot answering my questions because this is my first art show outside of Canada! So I appreciate her kindness. Here is the video I took on the main gallery floor.

While I was looking for my work, I found my hero in the same room!!!  Mr. Robert Liberace!!! I talked to him, and he was super nice and fun to chat with.me&ascolta&Mr.L

He introduced me to his friend, Mrs. Grace Kim and her husband James, who are also super nice. I promised to see them in Washington DC National Gallery. I will debut as an old master copyist in US soon!

On the 2nd day, I met Mrs. Tina Garrett and Ms. Olena Babak. I learned a lot from chatting with them. I think I am one of the most unexperienced artist there, so many things I can learn from the artists in the gallery. Olena was passionately helped me to connect other fellow Canadian artists. And I finally found Mr. Roger Schmidt and Mr. Bruno G. Corsini. My iPhone was dead for some reason this morning, so I have no photos (SAD!).

Without my iPhone, I had no sense of direction, so I left the gallery early, and ran to the Apple store in the Grand Central Station. I love this steampunk SF feel station a lot. It is decorated with beautiful sculpture. Apple store staff were kind and fixed my phone right away. Then I headed to the IMG_7492MET for sketching. This day’s my sketching gear was not so good, slippery paper with waxy colour pencil…. It was difficult to draw as the pencil slipped so I had to force my hand to leave darker tone. Silly me. And you can see the result of my struggle.

I left on the 14th Sunday late afternoon, I spent my morning in the Morgan library to see the treasures from Sweden show. I am a big fan of Rubens, Carracci and Boucher and this Sunday was the last day of the show, so I was lucky to catch it before its gone! Here are some samples what were in the show and my sketch…!


It was a great experience and I love to visit New York. 😀
