Bonnie Nish hosted a poetry reading this evening at the JCC in Vancouver. The exhibit, titled, Physician Heal Thyself featured poet Timothy Shay and 5 others. Amanda Wardrop gave a rousing reading and strong performance.
At the JCC for the Physicians Heal Thyself exhibit featuring the work of Ian Penn, a surgeon who had a rude awakening after surgery left him in more pain than he could tolerate or his doctors could manage. Penn's anger directed at the medical community pushes through his art forcefully.
Watched an art class at the Sawbuck Pub in White Rock/S.Surrey BC last night. Chantale leads the MeetUp group of 30 on the last Tuesday of every month. Good energy and great inspiration for new artists young ... and not so young.

Painter Donna Giraud in front of her contemporary abstract installation at ART! Vancouver 2017. Donna is a brilliant and well respected artist who also has considerable knowledge about art promotion using social media. Love her work and attitude. #abstractart #artpromotion
Frank Sirlin in front of his mixed media piece on display at ART! Vancouver 2017. This piece is a painted photo with Hebrew inscriptions throughout. Unique piece sandwiched between one inch thick acrylic weighing over 260 pounds per panel. A perfect piece to hang on the wall at MEC.

Caught up with iRMA Bijdemast at ART! Vancouver 2017. Although traffic was sparse at the show, by Saturday iRMA had sold 3 pieces - considerably more than other artists with whom we spoke. LTR, iRMA and her partner Debbie Lawrance. Nice job and great installation! #artists #abstractart #abstractcontemporary
Melissa Dinwoodie displaying at ART! Vancouver. Melissa, by far, had the most evocative and provocative installations at the 2017 art fair. She is standing in front of one of a series of her paintings of journalists who have been called by Trump, an enemy of Americans. The image on the left is of journalist Dan Heyman who was arrested for pursuing Trump too aggressively. This series is called The truth is worth pursuing. Heyman bought this painting for his wall. Her conceptual paintings are highly creative and brilliant! #politics #politicalart #politicalartist
