Camb/Guelph Book Show in March! SiliconW gallery Kitchener.

news report on the show by Zak

SiliconW Gallery is planning a month long show for the Cambridge Guelph Talent Next Door Book. Opening Night is Tenatively evening Thursday March 8 (subject to participation of the artists).

More details soon. Cherie the curator will be sending out emails about it soon.
If you are in the book you will be invited to show for the month. If you know anyone in the book that is not up to date on their emails, please talk about it with anyone that should know. I still want to do some get togethers in both cambridge and guelph, but putting a show on your CV from outside your local town will look good for everyone, especially those with only local exposure. SiliconW is very generous donating this space for our use.

The KW book had a huge selection from the book at the gallery and estimates of 500 people attended the opening.

Now the book itself!


Sorry for the delay everyone, publishing is difficult long distance with mail and the voodoo that is colour printing.

I have finally received a proof that is nice and bright and that I like!

I am ordering 150 copies for the Mar. 8 opening (currently scheduled…more here) If all goes well they should be there for that. I still plan smaller events in Cambridge and Guelph themselves, but Silicon W in Kitchener has graciously offered us their gallery for the month of March. The KW book was held there and it was a fully packed house with over 500 people they tell me. It was also on TV!

Click the How To Buy Books Tab for all options.
The books I have on hand from me will be $20 because of my author discount.
Books will be available online at the regular price in several ways (drop ship, through the amazon owned publisher, and ( eventually other distributers as they filter through the system in the next couple of months. )

If you are impatient and don’t mind paying more, the fastest way is through the owned publisher site. They come right off the production line to you directly and the site has a guarantee for being printed and cut properly…Please make use of this GUARANTEE if anything goes wrong, and also inform me, as there have been sporadic issues over XMAS that I have been trying to wait out while they got back to normal (which is why this too so long). I think they are back up to speed now.

More information about the SiliconW show was sent feb 21 (from she is the curator, her email reposted here:

Just making sure that everyone in the Cambridge Guelph book has checked their email for the upcoming show for MARCH at siliconW that is providing the venue for the first show for the cambridge Guelph book. Cherie Fawcett is managing the show for me. The last show at Siliconw was a major hit with they tell me 500+ people at the opening that was packed! I have ordered 150 CG books for the event to ……sell ($20) and some more of the KW books as well. The opening is march 8th 7-10, the rest of the details are in the pasted message below:

SiliconW Show Extension

Everyone should check their spam boxes for dec 24 from siliconW. This message below may have appeared.

Since they are short staffed in their gallery at the moment and the gallery is unbooked for january they thought it easier to extend the show, they don’t have exact details until the new year but Anil said he is thinking of Jan 26 give or take as the new pick up date if you would like to extend your showing.

Dear Artists and Friends,

Thank you very much for your support and kind emails over the holiday season. As you are aware, Stela has moved on and is no longer our gallery curator, we wish her the best in her future endeavors as we endeavor to find a suitable replacement in the new year. We would like to extend the current show through January as we have received amazing feedback and all of the art on display is very inspiring.

For any reason, if you require your artwork back and it has not yet sold, please let us know and we will gladly arrange a time with you for take-down and pickup. Otherwise, we look forward to speaking with you in the new year and discussing the ways in which we can win together. We will also coordinate a take-down schedule in january for the rest of the art that does not sell.

To start, we would like to offer you a holiday present… be the first to have a go at our new virtual product and design your own mobile app – Let us know the App Name you create so we can upgrade you to the pro service for free.

Hope you all enjoy the holiday season!

Anil Mehta and Paul Silva
