If you have sad feelings because you missed my recent open studio then here's another chance to come say hi, see some of my art and pick-up a new original, book or print for yourself or a pal.  

I will be there in person on both Saturday and Sunday from 11-4pm : ) 

 

The gallery is located just inside the main entrance of Emily Carr University of Art + Design ( 1399 Johnston Street on Granville Island) .  It's called The Art Market and all works are made by Emily Carrr Alumni and range from fine art to craft.  There will also be a little book lounge set up as part of the event ...who doesn't love books? ! ? !

 

PS. I will have small crystal paintings available (see image below) and a few mini iceberg paintings.







I'm part of this super dynamic group of artists showing at Kimoto Gallery this July.

In the studio trying to take a photo of myself so I can really embrace the whole "wearing glasses" thing. My eyes have been so dry lately that my contacts are super uncomfortable to wear but I am super clumsy in my glasses, bumping into stuff because my peripheral vision has been reduced to a foggy blur. 

Behind me is the painting rack that my friend built for me last year, it's a life saver - just like my glasses : )




 

Here's a list of upcoming exhibitions that I am participating in - hope that you can make it out to them.

ROVE YVR


Open Studio & Art Walk

The next open studio/ROVE event is scheduled for September/2015.
These events are super fun! I usually have books and smaller pieces available for purchase. Stay tuned for more details by getting email updates here.

 




Wow - so grateful for the feature on the website for Anthology Magazine. Here's a little excerpt from the short article:

 

I’m especially in love with some of her latest works, including a series of pastel-hued faceted crystals. They remind me of a magical world of sea-glass shards and sunsets. 

 

-Read the rest on Anthology's amazingly stylish blog here:  http://anthologymag.com/blog3/2015/05/11/rebecca-chaperon/#sthash.lE47VodB.dpuf )

 

I'm so happy when people discover my art and take the time to share it with others. Anthology Magazine started in 2010 in San Francisco.  I love San Francisco - I had the chance to visit in 2014 for my show with Scott Listfield at Gauntlet Gallery.  

 

Anothology Magazine can be found in print and here's a list of their stockists: http://anthologymag.com/blog3/stockists/  and if you are in Vancouver you can look for it at Much & Little or Anthropologie.
