ty for your interest. You make an excellent point. I'll see if I can arrange to have a local(to Massey) venue exhibit our show during his 3 day stint in TO, mid November. Watch for a posting here if I can make it happen.

Victoria many thanks for the headsup on your plans,personally I would consider it essential to let the droves of Lightheads who will be congregating in Toronto for the four not three concerts (November 16th to 19th now) have a timely opportunity to see your exhibition.
You did not actually say that you would be offerring anything for sale but no doubt a few of the less poor members would be keen to fork out on some Lightfoot orientated artwork either then (or even later on comission).
Just a suggestion a number of us will be ensconsed for that period in the Delta Chelsea
a nice walk from Massey. I do not know what the current state of play is but I believe our
honorary and active convention organiser Janice was hoping to arrange with the hotel people for some sort of group meeting room and I suspect that "about 20ish original paintings, pastels, etc." could be accomodated giving you a "captive" and no doubt appreciative audience.I will leave it to you two ladies to comment furrher and if applicable exchange Private or even public messages on this forum.
Noting that some sharing of any costs in obtaining a suitable room in the hotel a room
could be a boon and avoid you spending money on
"a local(to Massey) venue"
Just my twopence worth

Well, I was going to put a link up to a poster that was created to advertise this. But, alas I am not the computer whiz I thought I could be. So I am sending it to John and he possibly could post it.

this was included regarding the artist:
Original pastel by artist Nancy Anderson. It depicts an image of her interpretation of the
lyrics to "Canadian Railroad Trilogy" and her first time hearing the song on a train in the Canadian west, on her way to perform( she is also a musician and she LOVES Lightfoot).

John, help please! I sent it to your hotmail account.

John, help please! I sent it to your hotmail account.
An Interesting and instructive task Deb that you put me up to
providing yet more tutorial raw material
You sent me a fairly large Word document of some 1561 Kb i.e larger than 1 megabyte
whilst dispaying as a picture such a complete document is not possible there are two main alterrnatives.
1. upload the doc to a free website somewhere for example one at http://www.ripway.com
being a splendid provider of generous sites which alow hotlinking
2 download a pretty easy to use even for those not computer wiz's "screen capture" program
I thoroughly recommend a free programme called screenhunter from:-
http://www.wisdom-soft.com/products/screenhunter.htm
then make a compressed jpeg of the area that is relevant as below.
which I then uploaded to the free picture hosting site
http://www.imageshack.us

a compresed jpg file only 49.5KB a tad smaller than 1561KB

Victoria has graciously run out into her yard this morning and shot this photo of the poster. It is by Nancy Anderson who 'has a real passion for Lightfoot'.
The poster states that the show ends October 31 but it is now ending on November 13, 2006.
After checking the website and looking at the art work of many of the artists I am really looking forward to this show and their "Ode to Gordon Lightfoot"

Oh how I wish I could be there for the exhibit. Alas, I live too far away. Keep us posted if there's pieces we can view on line (like the wonderful poster drawing), or if there will be prints, etc., for sale OK? THANKS!
