Memories of summertime: 2011 NDG Art Walk

On this 23rd day of September, the automnal equinox puts a definitive end to summer. As I reminisce about warmer temperatures, I relive fond memories such as the NDG Art Walk of August 28th: the culmination of a week long celebration of the arts, held in front of the Coop la maison verte.

Let me introduce you to some of the artists I met that day:

This is Lorraine Albert, the first artist I met. Lorraine paints on canvas as well as on irregular surfaces. She also does photography and is more and more interested in performance art.

One of a kind skateboards by Lorraine Albert. I especially loved the vintage photo transfers.

Kendra Boychuk draws inspiration from nature and her paintings have a whimsical element to them. My favorite piece: the portrait of nature guru, David Suzuki.

Singer-songwriter, author and proud father of the illustrator, here is Pat (Lp) Camozzi with his latest work: Spice Kapita, a wonderful book for children and adults about the adventures of a young boy through dance.
