Last weekend was the 13th annual New Westminster Cultural Crawl and 100 Braid Street Studios, where I have a studio, was one of the venues on the crawl. We were happy to welcome many new visitors as well as renewing connections with previous visitors. The weather was wonderful, and the sunlight lit the artworks of all 16 studio artists beautifully.
I very much enjoyed talking to visitors to my studio, who seemed to come in a steady stream all weekend! Although I find these kinds of events very wearing as it’s hard for me to concentrate on keeping my balance and talking to visitors, I learned so much by talking to people, hearing their reactions to art, their art practices and much more. And a big bonus, many of our studio visitors went home with new art for their collections!
