Go look at art

If you receive this post on the 24th, try to get in to see a great reception at Pynelogs tonight. And if you can't make it Wednesday night, go have a lovely lunch at the Pynelogs cafe and tour the art on Saturday or Sunday (you can visit with me, I'll be minding the gallery!)

Papier Colle Femmes reception

Judy Walker and me at the reception for Papier Colle Femmes. There was a fine turnout. The rest of the show was very interesting also. Our third musketeer, Carney Oudendag had to miss the event because she had just moved and was up to her ears busy but she was keenly missed. 

 Judy's awesome album.

 Carney's super suitcase.

  If you can get down to Pynelogs, go have a delicious lunch on the patio and take in the art.

Papier Colle Femmes

Witchy woman    8x10 collage
Inspired by stories on collage collaborations that I kept reading about on Art blogs and “Cloth, Paper, Scissor ” magazine articles, I decided to approach my two favorite collage artists in my area. They are Carney Oudendag and Judy Walker. I suggested that we each make a dozen collages, four of which would be sent to the other participants each and four to keep for ourselves. It was a bit of a wild ride. We didn’t really know what we were doing but we plunged in anyway. I think that may be the best course for most projects. We called ourselves the "Papier Colle Femmes" which translates roughly to women who tear up paper. Grrr!
Our collaborative collage project will be in the Pynelogs Innovations show July 8-21. The reception is Wednesday night July 10 from 7-9 pm. Please join us and find out what a collage collaboration looks like!

Nelson Art Walk

I am taking part in the Nelson Art Walk this year. I will let you know how it turns out.

"This year ArtWalk will kick off on Friday, July 5 with opening receptions at the 16 participating venues and a street party packed with artsy activities and performances in the 400-block of Baker Street.
The event starts at 6 p.m. with the Kootenay Keltie Pipe Band marching the ArtWalk route. Throughout the evening, there will be musicians playing around the route, providing ambiance for your art viewing experience."    Nelson Star newspaper

Yippee, a pipe band!
