Local artist holds his first solo show at Burlington Art Centre.

By Pepper Parr

BURLINGTON, ON. January 22, 2013 It`s taken awhile but Don Graves is holding his first solo show at the Burlington Art Centre.  Titled  Canadian Landscapes it will be at the Fireside Lounge Gallery of  The Burlington Art Centre and runs from February  1st to Feb 28th with an opening reception on February  3rd in the Fireside from 2-4.00 pm.

Don Graves, who will hold his first solo event at the Burlington Art Centre in February sells a piece of his work during an Art in Action show last year.

The show features work from Ontario, Quebec and the local area painted since the fall of 2012. This is Graves’ 9th year as a full-time painter.

Full time isn’t quite correct; Graves writes book reviews for the Spectator and is a part of the Art in Action collective that puts on the superb house tour every fall.

Graves has been supported by Burlington residents Mr. & Mrs. W. B. Russell of Interprovincial Corrosion Control and Framecraft of St. Catharines.

Like many artists Graves gets out into the field with his sketching kit.  In the Spring he intends to take a  sketch trip to the Ottawa Valley following the A.Y. Jackson trail from Barry’s Bay to Renfrew.  Might be enough from that trip for a second solo show.  Expect to see some of the results from that sketch trip in the 2013 Art in Action show.
