I just wrote a big long post about how I hate drawing flowers and my adventures in not drawing them with photos and drawings etc., etc., then hit the wrong button and lost it all. Sigh. I just hate it when that happens.
So instead I'll let you know about this:
An Open Book: Portraiture in Art, Literature, and Contemporary Culture
Saturday, April 21, 2007, 2pm - 3:30pm
Level 2 - Theatre
In conjunction with the exhibit Peter Wilkins: Kinetic Portraits of 12 Canadian Writers, The Rooms is pleased to present the panel discussion, An Open Book: Portraiture in Art, Literature, and Contemporary Culture, featuring writers Michael Crummey and Jane Urquhart, as well as artists Craig Francis Power and Peter Wilkins.
Join this group of diverse artists and writers for a varied discussion on portraying self and character in creative practice and contemporary culture. Representing a range of views on the subject, the participants will be here to discuss sources and strategies in their work, as well as influences and current directions in portraiture.
Refreshments will be served and everyone is welcome, (first-come, first-seated).
This event is included in the cost of admission to The Rooms.
Oh and the ice is packed into the coves as I saw on the drive to and from work today. I didn't have a camera with me and light was fading by the time I did, so I didn't get any images of it. Perhaps tomorrow if its still there. Meanwhile, you can see some photos of it on Vicky's site here.
