I brought all those printed ladies yesterday at the ACT gallery in Maple Ridge for the Ensemble show.
In their words:
November 3–December 20, 2018
This group show has become something of a Christmas ’classic’ at The ACT. Selected artists are invited to display a grouping of their artwork that is related by theme, medium, style, and/or size. The result is always surprisingly coherent, with each artist being given just enough space to make a statement.
All works in the show are available for sale, offering much potential for those who like to deck their halls (or someone else’s) with something handmade and heartfelt at this time of year.”
Join me for the opening on November 3rd :2-4 pm
We are passionate about making art accessible. We believe that if you can write, you can draw.
Every year we organize a Culture Days event that will reveal the artist in you in a fun and relaxed environment.
We truly believe that art is for everyone and we designed a fun activity that will have you make a unique picture, easily and in no time. All you have to do is relax and let your imagination do all the work.
This activity is suitable for kids all ages as well as for adults, even the adults who could not draw to save their life.
If you like the picture you made, Sophie and Sandrine will help you upload it to the Big Picture Art Project, and online collective art project where artists from everywhere in the world are sharing drawings and stories.
Sunday Sept 30 : 10 am to 4 pm
