Keister 2 by Robert Rangno is one of the first things to be seen on entering the area reserved for the exhibition.
Ron Simmer provided colourful expression with Hot Metal Flower Bouquet.
Dandelion caught my eye. It's a smaller piece by Anyuta Gusakova.
On the right, The Never-ending Song, in cold cast bronze, by Linda Schmidt.
Louise Solecki Weir's two pieces appealed to me: Boy With a Hat and Young Aristotle.
A two-sided piece, almost my height, in ceramic and mixed-media called African Queen was one of several by the artist Suzy Birstein.
And through the mix of artworks and people it was a pleasure to meet an old friend from almost thirty years ago. Jean-Guy Dallaire is a photographer, sculptor, philosopher and more. He developed what became known as Wreck Beach Originals in the 1980s and 90s. These were works based on stones, pebbles and concretions Jean-Guy found on the beaches of Vancouver. At this exhibition he was offereing demonstrations, en français et anglais, with the theme: "It's amazing what one can see... in a stone... l'imaginaire est mon meilleur ami!"
I've always felt Jean-Guy's works to be elegantly simple yet profound and natural. It was great to spend a brief time with Jean-Guy and to be energised by his boundless passion for life and art.
