Welcome to the WASM blog. With any luck (in finding the time) I will be able to keep you up to date on the Women's Art Society, posting photos of lectures and outings, as well as of things of interest in and around the city.

As usual, our first cultural outing of the season, which took place Thursday Sept. 24th, was to the Klinkhoff Gallery on Sherbrooke Street where we were graciously received by Eric Klinkhoff. He spoke to us about Montreal artist Paul Vanier Beaulieu (1910-1996), a talk rich in detail---both of Beaulieu's life and artistic trajectory and the Montreal art scene of his era. An afternoon thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Here are some photos from our visit.
