Artistic growth and creativity in the Powell River Region
If a picture is worth a thousand words then perhaps a thousand Words are Worth a MAS of pictures....
Last October, Laurie Lee came up with a splendid idea for a group show, which was to find (or write) a short story which would provide several different scenes within it for each artist to use as their theme to create a fine painting, collage or photograph for the next group show. The idea was to see how each artist portrayed their perception of that story, making it a very unique and interesting show.
