Rebecca Nash featured in Fort Erie Post for 'Windows on the War of 1812' Exhibition

As some of you may already know, over the last 2 years I have had the pleasure of being an exhibiting photographic artist alongside the talented painter Stephen J. Arthurs in our exhibition 'Windows on the War of 1812'.  

Last month during the exhibition of 'Windows on the War of 1812' at Under the Moon Fine Arts in Ridgeway, Ontario the Fort Erie Post featured a great article on our exhibition and I'm thrilled to share it with you today.

It's back! The Etsy shop returns with new art and support for a great cause!

Over a year ago, I bid goodbye to the Rebecca Nash Photography Etsy store and created a store located here on the site.  

In retrospect, this was unnecessarily challenging both for setting up and customs to use. So, after some feedback and thought, the Rebecca Nash Photography Etsy store is back!

 

What will you find on the Rebecca Nash Photography Etsy store? - Exhibition Originals from group & juried art exhibitions, and the traveling exhibition "Windows on the War of 1812" - Limited Edition Prints of some of my favourite images - Exclusive Image Launches that will not be offered anywhere else - Gift Certificates that can be used for artwork or services - Gift items including stationary sets, portfolios, and more (Coming Soon)

 

As if that wasn't enough excitement, for the months of April & May you get the bonus of purchase beautiful art for your home or office AND support a great cause. How?

All proceeds from sales in Apr & May (after shipping costs) will go directly to supporting the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation through the 2014 Embridge Ride to Conquer Cancer.

Find out more about the ride and why I got involved at www.conquercancer.ca/goto/rebeccanash

Behind the Lens: Dreaming of the Someday Studio & Gallery

You Might Say That I'm a Dreamer - John Lennon  

Okay, anyone who knows me knows one thing....I'm a dreamer!

I dream big dreams for myself and for the others around me. I do it all day long.

Every once in a while though, one of these dreams doesn't just pass by like daydreams so often do. It sticks. It stays in the back of my mind. Living, Breathing, and Growing there.

This is how my dream studio (the 'someday' studio) came to be.

As a photographer, I dream of having a space to showcase my work, welcome new faces, create artwork, and celebrate the life and love of others through my photography everyday.

When I first started to dream of my own space I started small. A small reception area with a few images on the wall, a comfy couch to sit in, and maybe a small desk for the assistant I'd someday have greeting clients as they arrived. These dreams were small and came and went without too much extra thought.

Then one day, while discussing the idea with my spouse, he came out and said...."with a gallery space right?"

Just like that, it went from small day dream to complete obsession. Why not have a gallery to showcase not only my work but the art of other photographers and artists in the area? Would we offer a workshop space too? A studio for rent? Pretty soon this thing was massive! An art gallery, a teaching classroom or two, offices, multiple studios...it just grew and grew with all the potential!

After a few days of this madness, I began to reign it in a bit. What did I really want? What would be essential to having my business serve my clients and my staff in the way I dreamed? How could I create the experience I dreamed of providing my clients. And from here the someday studio and gallery were born.

 

I began with a list of things that would help me meet my clients needs. Then, a list of things I needed to do my job well for clients. Then, a list of the ways I could step up my clients experience and meet the image I have imagined for my photography on both the wedding & portrait, as well as, the fine art sides.

This list became bigger ideas. The ideas became a floor plan. And now, a little over a year later, this dream has grown to something so real that I can tell you the look, the feel, even the smells of the place. I know the colours the walls will be painted. The furniture for each space within it. The books on my shelves. The fabric on the sofa, the curtains and more.

Today I sit here with a vision of what my studio and gallery will be, and it's so real that I know that someday isn't really that far away!

Contemporary Elegance Portraits with Shanel

This past weekend I had the fabulous experience of getting the beautiful and energizing Shanel of From the Heart and Soul in front of my lens for a day of beauty, elegance, glamour, and a few good laughs along the way. From the moment she walked in through hair, makeup, and clothing changes this woman just radiates confidence, poise, and the very definition of contemporary elegance through the portrait artwork creation session. I'm thrilled to share with you today just a few of the many sides to Shanel in art with her portraits!

The Art Exchange - Square Foot Show Opening Gala

Friday night was the Opening Reception for the first annual Square Foot Show and Exhibition at the Art Exchange. I was thrilled to be able to share the evening with not only my other half Ross and daughter Alyssa (first time she's come to an opening) but also with my friend and fellow artist Shannon from Sweet Stella's who was also exhibiting. The Art Exchange kicked off the new Juried Art show this year in celebration of 15 years in business and the opening of a second location in Wortley Village. (Find out more about this in the article from The Londoner here)

I included three new pieces in the show this year as seen below. I had a hard time selecting images or even a theme to work from so I selected three unrelated images.

 

Admittedly, I love this last piece. I had so much fun creating it, and it came together so perfectly without direction, however, I think one of the best parts for me was seeing it hanging on the wall of the Art Exchange...why? Well, the adorable model is none other than Shannon from Sweet Stella's little bear Owen.

It made it really cool to have it hanging, have Shannon at the opening, and...one of Shannon's paintings hanging on the same wall. Yes I'm a mushy geek but it was great!
