Some of the highlight of my career have been my participation in the Canadian Neo-Dada show at the Art gallery of Windsor, the presentation of my One Room School S.S. #12 Shands paintings at the Burlington Arts Centre and the Glenhyrst Art Gallery in Brantford, and exhibition of Top of the Town, On Round the Lake, Port to Port and New Works at Lighthouse Festival Theatre.
