the Squared Show | 2023
Welcome to the same old / brand new Squared Show!
Thank you Gwen Spinks for Seven years of Stretched & Squared fabulousness. You have created something truly wonderful that brings us often reclusive artists together once a year to square off, stretch our abilities, and raise a glass to, and with each other. Let's keep playing.
Gwen has been kind enough to not only pass the torch to me, but to hold my hand a little as I move forward. I appreciate her support and patience and likely yours as I inevitably make some mistakes in this first year.
YAY, WE DID IT!
All 100 canvases are claimed. Happy creating!

Optional Theme. "Gold"
In honor of Seraphina passing away October 8, 2022
A number of people asked if this show would have a theme. As we hadn't done so in the past I decided to keep things as they have been. However I would like to offer a theme this year in honor of Serapina Khepera who recently passed away very unexpectedly. She was a young Gabriola artist (33). She was for a short time the vice president of the Arts Council, and she was my dear friend. This is completely optional so please don't feel compelled if it's too late, or if it's not your thing. A theme through Seraphina's work and her life was GOLD. Even the wood floors in her home were painted metalic gold. I thought it would be a fun challenge to put out the word gold and see what comes back. You can interpret this as you wish!
