Under the Influence Opens, PIG in the gallery this Saturday,LIFE DRAWING next Friday!

From Alex Colville to Claude Monet to Sean Starwars

We're getting SO excited to share the latest Summer show, "Under the Influence" opening Friday, August 17th, 6:30-8:30pm and on display until September 1st! For this juried show, artists were asked to create new works that take inspiration from their favourite artists. The results are amazing and there are so many unique in styles, mediums and approach! A feast for the eyes!  All works will be online here on our blog, after the show has officially opened, but visit the FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE HERE for sneak peeks! 


You may ask yourself "WHY?" And we answer with "Why Not!"  Sketchers of all ages are encouraged to bring your drawing utensils, paper and capture Erik at the gallery. Or simply just drop by to pat the little fellow! We can hardly wait...squeeeeel!


Don't forget that until August 18th, if you buy one print for $25, you can choose another and take it home for FREE. There are still lots of works to choose from and they make great gifts for any occasion or just because!

NEXT FRIDAY, August 24th, 8pm-9pm- Drop by the gallery windows of ARGYLE FINE ART street-view  (and inside if rainy) bring your sketchbooks and draw at our first LIFE DRAWING NIGHT with a LIVE  MODEL ! Free for all to attend but suggested donation of $5. Even if you aren't comfortable drawing, drop by and see what's up! Bring whatever materials you want but prepare to be standing or bring a stool or chair.  There will be 4 different set-ups in our window with model Carol Dill playing parts of influential artists from history to you to sketch. Each one of our gallery windows will be reveled with Carol posting and ready for sketching for approximately 10 min each.
There will be an Andy Warhol window, Vincent van Gogh window, and two others to be revealed the night of!
