Twin Ports Arts Scene: Happenings and Upcoming Events

Trepanier Hall
This afternoon at 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. there will be an Artist Discussion about Making Art Today at Studio 3 West. The WTF! show created quite a buzz when it opened earlier this month at the PROVE and Studio 3 West. This afternoon you can hop downtown and see what the buzz was all about.

Monday, March 20
As many of you know Esther Piszczek has been on a Sabbatical. Which is to say that if you've been dependent on her eNews to stay current with what happening in the local arts scene, then it been a rough three months.

On Monday she will be making a public appearance at Barnes & Noble from 4-6 p.m. She will be doing a book signing of her coloring book of Zentangle-inspired artwork, Patterned Peace. At the same time she'll also be doing some interactive demonstrations.

Thursday evening there was a Painting Event with Leah Yellowbird
Some of her work is currently on display in the AICHO Gallery along with pieces by Jonathn Thunder and others. The detail in Leah Yellowbird's work continues to impress and amaze. I've been captured by her magic. Her technique is evolving and her fan base is growing. Here (right) is one of her pieces with a pair of detail close-ups at the end of this post.

Meantime, art goes on all around you. Engage it.
