After a recent sculpture presentation I put together for my students, one asked me - do you take all your little cousins to museums to visit art? And I had to think about it for a second, but I realized how true it has actually been.
Gotta start ‘em young, right?
After what seemed like forever, I was finally able to visit the SF MOMA when it reopened. It completely blew me away!
The second half of the trip was to visit Vancouver.
I had a couple art agendas as well. There was a silkscreen duo KTandPaul whose work I wanted to see and also support. Luckily that weekend they had a booth set up at the Granville Island Market and I got to meet the lovely KT in person. That area is also home to Malaspina Printmakers which has a residency program with studio workspace. I had been following along for a little while and loved getting to visit. Maybe my future will hold a residency there!
To use very few words, Vancouver is very picturesque. Just about everywhere you turn some hidden light is peaking through or you see snow capped mountains or there is some water. We lucked out with good weather which just heighten our experience. The sea to sky highway was absolutely breathtaking. Good eats non stop with the best company and we can’t wait to return during summer months!
My take away and inspiration from this trip included new horizons to depict, some art world networking, and this particular painting with ribbons from the SFMOMA that much later made its way into some greeting cards with my own work.
