What can we say?… as we make three copies of everything for the International Customs declarations. Since the painting is jury selected for this show, we think we will just have to do our best to get the work there, even though it means a trip to Victoria B.C. for Fedex shipping. It should be, with a bit of luck, at the New York City Gallery, in preparation for the show, by Friday, March 22, 2019!
The Equinox Exhibition in New York, New York
is April 4 through April 26 2019
If you happen to be in the area or have friends who might be interested,
the NYA Gallery in TriBeCa is open 12 – 5 pm everyday at:
7 Franklin place, New York, NY 10013
Also, the Opening Night is April 4th from 6-9 pm and the link for eventvite tickets are HERE.
Just to add to the fun, there is a “sister painting” to this one which is available for viewing by appoint at the Terrill Welch Gallery’s winter studio during the same time as the Spring Equinox show at the NYA Gallery.
A coast to North American coast, reaching between two neighboring countries with two Terrill Welch paintings seems like a perfect way to start the Terrill Welch Gallery Spring season to me! What do you think?

The Terrill Welch Gallery congratulates the art collector who added this large contemporary Canadian landscape oil painting to their collection over the past couple of weeks.
The small study for this larger work refused to be left behind! So the two works will remain together in the same art collection.
Notes from the painter herself:
“A place where sea, shore, trees and home rest in harmony at the entrance to Active Pass on Mayne Island in British Columbia. There is just the right combination of resolve, peace, strength and resiliency present to fortify ones dignity and respect. It is a place where one’s inner and outer worlds seem seamless and glorious.”
Choosing the right space for a painting is always an interesting challenge. We had the opportunity to exercise my “visiting rights” of another large work in the same art collector’s home while we hung the new painting. This earlier painting is across from an open staircase and allows the viewer to see it easily at various heights from up and down the stairs as well from various locations in the open plan room. The ability to basically shift the viewers perspective from sitting to standing, depending on where they are on the stairs works extremely well.
Have you ever considered how art work in your rooms will be mostly be viewed?
Will people be transitioning from one room to another?
Will they often be sitting on chairs or sofas?
Is it a standing working area or an entrance?
Does the work require a brief glance to “get it” or does it require time to study and contemplate?
What is the work’s purpose in the room?
Does the work calm or energize?
Is the art of significance by itself or has it been paired to support other decorative aspects of a room? Or both?
Just a few quick thoughts to bring to your art collecting mindset when choosing where to hang a painting. Maybe these questions will lead to a whole shift of the art in your home or office? A fresh review of the work possibly?
Note: normally we don’t want to hang an original painting above a fireplace. In this case the fireplace is highly functional and as well as seldom used, leaving the painting at minimal risk of damage.
Happy Spring from the Terrill Welch Gallery to YOU!
