Its been some week for art - began with the opening of Steven Frank's Durham ArtFest 25 (closing Oct 7) and then continued with the first meeting of Oshawa's Pubic Art Task Force (I am the rep for the Cultural Leadership Committee), Thursday I met up with folks from the Station Gallery at the AGO and wandered through Rodins, Moores, Van Goghs, Group of Sevens and a performance by Peaches, so much great work - and last night I was at RMG FF taking in probably their best line-up of shows in some years. Locals and legacies on display and the Heavy Hitters show is just mindblowing (as you see above). Lots going on, make art part of your Thanksgiving.
