(detail of some body painting I did during Culture Days Art x 9 event)
So Montreal Culture Days are over. It was great to see everyone who came out, to meet new artists and friends and to have participated in this event. I was fascinated by the way that the atritsts showing with me in the show expressed through their art what Montreal and life here means to them, what they are inspired by, what speaks to their hearts and how they translate that through their art in it's various media. It was challenging for me to express this same thing through my own work but was a great way for me to reflect on, and put into perspective what Montreal and living here and experiencing life here means to me....and then to put that into paint on canvas.
I had a great time painting on many of the kids and adults alike that came to see our show. It was also interesting sitting in on some of the different workshops given by the other artists. As always i am reminded of how varied and fascinating everyones different skills and knowledge are.
A huge thank you to Studio BBG for hosting us. Nadia and her crew are fantasic and we all enjoyed our time there during Culture Days weekend. Thanks to our many local sponsors as well.
I look forward to future Culture Days and the creativity they bring!
