I told ya I was gonna feature more painting on the site so that’s exactly what I’m doing. Fantastic oil paintings by Francoise Nielly. She lives and works in Paris and has shown all over the world (even right here in Vancouver). Such bold strokes with a palette knife – what’s not to love?
The Vancouver Art Book Fair is back for its 5th year! Organized by Project Space, a non-profit organization dedicated to publication as an artistic medium, the fair takes place at the Vancouver Art Gallery, October 14 – 16. It’s also free and open to the public!
If you’re in the Vancouver area (and into books and zines!) you’re definitely going to want to check it out! This year’s multi-day event is bigger than ever, with over 100 local, national and international publishers displaying their goods, as well as a diverse line-up of programs, hourly talks, performances and artist projects.
