Unfortunatly I was unable to attend the Meet and Greet hosted by the Wood Buffalo Artists Forum two weekends ago. However, Artist Forum board member Louise van Alenburg was kind enough to provide me with the following recap and images. Thanks Louise!
Artists dress up for Halloween
When the Artists Forum invited artists for a Meet and Greet on Halloween Saturday at the ‘soon to be gallery’ at MacDonald Island, they knew they were in for something special. Leave dressing up to artists. So far for a meet and greet: we will hardly recognize each other after this! In future meetings we will refer to Charlie Chaplin, Einstein, Pippi Longstocking or the FMM Ink girl.
Approximately 20 artists showed up for the evening with yummy homemade appetizers and desserts. The artists had a change to get to know each other, chat about art in town and to see the gallery space for themselves. It may help to visualize the possibilities and to prepare for our Open Call for the first exhibition with the theme ‘Celebration’ in January. The deadline for submission is January 5th, 2011.
