I would have to say that the most precious connections I have made here in Barrie, Ontario are with Awkward Stage and Le Petit Chapeau. Both Alana Sproule and Meaghan Armstrong have been both supportive and inspirational as I begin my journey as an artist. Beyond being my studio neighbours, we are working hard as the Lakeshore collaborative to bring programming to the mews during culture days and deliver workshops throughout the year. I definately could not have done what I have without these two special ladies.
The ART BATTLE
Art Battle is a live competitive painting phenomenon that has been created by two Toronto artists: Chris Pemberton & Simon Plashkes
In February of 2011, I was lucky enough to be selected to paint in Art Battle at the Varley. Since then I have participated in their Sweeet 16 event as well as just got back from Art Battle 19.
Want to get involved, see videos of the event, or think this might be the perfect opportunity to start your art collection or hold a fundraiser? Then visit the ART BATTLE site for more information.
