….what a week that was! It’s half-way through marvellous manic March and so far, so good- well actually it’s been fabulous so far. It’s exciting to have so much going on, its keeping me on my toes for sure.
This beautiful place is the North Vancouver City Hall, on the left is the Atrium gallery where my Spring Blossom installation is hanging.
It’s a really interesting building, built to be environmentally efficient, with lots of open space and lovely views. I’ll be giving an artists talk at the City Hall on Tuesday the 24th of March at 12:15. I won’t talk long I promise, so drop by if you’re around.
The real blossoms are full on right now, despite the rain there is a wonderful show all over. This tree is one Ned and I pass often, the blossoms are so fluffy they look blurry. I love the edge of this tree, it hangs over the walk way and there was a shower of petals with the rain this morning.
And….mended opened! It was a terrific evening…lots of guests and artists made it out, Il Museo load out he treats and wine and we had a wonderful time. Here’s a few shots from the evening but you can’t see the actual show- there were too many people! I’ll go back and take some pictures when it’s a bit quieter.
Somehow in the crush of people this visitor managed to find an opening to enjoy these pieces undisturbed.
To top off the week we had a demo-day on Saturday at the gallery. We invited visitors to try their hand at a little mending. We’re going to do it again on April 11th from 11 till 2 so drop by if you would like to meet a few of the artists and try your hand.
Mended is on until May 15th at Il Museo in the Italian Cultural Center, I do hope you will get a chance to see it! and Spring Blossoms are at the North Vancouver City Hall until the 11th of May.
Just because I can’t resist…here’s one more blossom that’s survived the rain…
Bye for now, Catherine
The pink of the pieces in the atrium are really complimented by that lovely blue/green. Would love to have seen it and heard your talk but sadly, although I will be passing through Vancouver on 28th April, I won’t see anything except the airport! So glad that mended was well received too.
Thanks Maggi, Have a wonderful trip- the Vancouver airport is actually quite a nice place and full of art!
Catherine, lovely to see all of your cherry blossom pieces hanging together – thanks for the pictures of all the fabulous exhibits – congratulations to all!!
