His Work Friday

We went to the Surrey Art Gallery on Friday evening.

For Opening Reception of Arts 2008 (A Juried Exhibition of Local Art).

We actually went with Lew family. Surrey is like 30~40 minutes by driving from where we live.

First time for all of us to attend the gallery reception in Canada.

Entering the building.

There are quite some people in the gallery.

Time to see the local talents.

58 artists' work are in the show.

Justin and Ashley explored Art.

And so did Fiona.

The announcement and speech went pretty long...

By the way, Taddy's illustration is in the show.

It has been more than 12 years since he did his last illustration. He wasn't totally happy about what he created this time.

"Past Three Years" - Mixed Media 21.5" x 15"

As his style of illustration, the piece reflects his identity, imagination, and good memories.  Each element, such as figures (his families, Chaiwat, Fouquets, Paynes, Chi Ching, etc.), and the environment, comes from one of the four cultures that Taddy has tasted in the last three years.

All right, refreshments!

They served punch but no wine...

Inside the building is kinda cool.

So we just walked around.

Ashley and Justin explored the building.

Well, we had spent enough time in the gallery.

Came out of the building.

It was around 8:30 PM, but the outside was still warm and bright.

There is a big park near by the gallery.

So we took a short walk.

After we came back home, we ate snack and drank wine!

Shoot Taddy, you're just like my brother. (artist) He's never quite happy with any of his work either. I say it looks great--how did you come up with such a creative design?

Taddy, I'm so proud of you for rekindling your love of art. I'm sure this is the first in many great works you will create this year! We're both very proud of you, so keep it up!!
