Art au Carré – Square Affair Art Show at the VAC

Have you ever visited the McClure gallery in Westmount? It is inside the Visual Arts Centre and boasts some pretty fantastic artists throughout the year, with exhibitions changing every month. They also host seminars and lectures on visual arts themes. They’ve begun doing an annual fundraiser show in support of the V.A.C. that takes place in November, just a short 5-day exhibit. This year I inquired about taking part and will be contributing a photograph on a fine art cotton rag paper, with a torn edge. I didn’t have a chance to take a picture of the final piece before submission, whoops! But this is the image…

The show is called the ‘Square Affair’ or ‘Art au Carré’, because the gallery will be filled with hundreds of pieces (mostly paintings) in one foot squares. I saw this exhibit for the first time last year, a really exciting and lively show – the gallery is packed with all these wonderful works of art in such a wide variety of styles, and all at really affordable prices.

The Visual Arts Centre in Westmount is Canada’s largest independent bilingual art school. Tickets for the opening night ‘vernissage’ are $25 for first dibs on hors d’oeuvres and on your favourite piece of art. Items sell fast! For tickets you can call 514-488-9558 or e-mail info@visualartscentre.ca. I hope you have a chance to attend the gala evening, or at least see the show before it comes down on the 23rd of November!
