After I was invited to show my art at the Shanghai Restaurant and got to know some of the owners of the restaurant, I had the pleasant surprise of discovering that it is not “just a restaurant”, but a mini-community center! Everyone who is someone in Ottawa area, and some from outside, is a friend of the Shanghai! Well known people from all walks of life came in one time or another. So, now it is time that my friends join the crowd and meet me at Shanghai for the vernissage of my China Girl show, on Thursday September 6th, at 7 pm. Great art, good treats and great company! Please come by!
