Day Job, Group Art Exhibition
Tina Monod, Ontario, January 18, 2014 – Day Job is an art exhibit which connects 25 past and present staff members of Opus Framing and Art Supplies. This exhibition will run from January 18 to March 2, 2014.
Looking back, there are so many special things about Opus Kelowna. It was exciting to be part of this thriving artist hub in the heart of downtown Kelowna. What began in the spring of 1994 has given artists and the community so much. I am grateful for the experience to help begin this new store and the lessons of art, leadership and vision.
Designing products, building customized inventory, visual merchandising, marketing and training were a lot of fun. Those days will always be near and dear. My painting for this show “Day Job” was created when first setting up the new Opus store. It was painted in my free time, with a little each morning day by day in my hotel room. Art exhibition will always remind me of friendship and camaraderie. A true spirit of community, art and culture which carries on.
Special thanks to David van Berckel, President of Opus Art Supplies; Nataley Nagy, Executive Director of the Kelowna Art Gallery; Neena Sood, Day Job Artist and Curator; and Opus staff and artists!
