The North Vancouver Community Arts Council is currently hosting an exhibition called “Uncovered.” This collection of nudes runs until May 11th at CityScape Community Art Space (335 Lonsdale Ave., North Vancouver). For those of you who are attending the exhibition (or even featured in it), here are some titles in our collection that would complement your experience:
For Fiction Fans:
The Last Nude by Ellis Avery
For Non-Fiction Fans:
De Kooning: An American Master by Mark Stevens
One of my favourite quotes of all time about art is from de Kooning, “Flesh is the reason oil paint was invented.” Why not read more about the life this abstract expressionist painter and find out how his views were shaped?
For Artists and Would-be Artists: If you’re in town this weekend be sure to drop in on the Free Drawing Workshop: Saturday, April 27, 1-3pm at CityScape Community Art Space (335 Lonsdale Ave., North Vancouver)
Professional artist Frankie Watt will lead a practical workshop focusing on drawing the hands and feet.
