WASM Annual Art Show 2012

Yesterday's vernissage was a great success and well attended, as you can see. Here are the first photos and there are more to come when I return from my weekend away. Congratulations to the prize winners and many thanks to all the volunteers who made the evening a memorable one.
These are the installation shots I got before the crowds arrived.

Report from Tudor Hall 2

Thanks to Suzy Charto for this photo of the hanging committee resting their weary legs after hours of work getting the show up, and of course an even bigger thanks to the whole team for their efforts. Tonight is the big night, see you there!

Spring at WASM

Our spring season began last week with a talk by Tony DeMelo, and what a spring it is! Jackie Wloski has been faithfully taking photographs of WASM events and I am afraid I am the one who has lagged behind in getting the posts up. So don't be surprised to see Christmas tree photos in April! Meanwhile, here are some terrific paintings by Jackie Rae, the first one portraying a meeting at the McCord and, I am sure, some of you will certainly recognize yourselves. I did.
