From Where We Stand: Artist Talk & Tour
July 19, 2018 | 7pm
Join 13 Feet off the Ground Collective for an artist talk & tour of their exhibition From Where We Stand, on display at the Port Moody Arts Centre from July 12 - August 6. 2018.
13 Feet off the Ground is a collective of established female artists based in Vancouver. The thirteen artists came together through an opportunity to participate in an established residency program, Graniti Murales in Sicily. The objective of this residency program is to create contemporary murals for the ancient exterior walls of Graniti. Within their group they have a range of artistic styles represented; figurative, landscape, realism and abstraction. They expressed their styles through the creation of 12 individual murals, a collaborative mural and in-studio paintings and installations.
The evening will include a slide show featuring the collective’s mural work in Sicily and also includes a talk and tour through their exhibition of current work produced following the residency in Sicily last fall. The paintings and installations feature their diverse styles and demonstrate their commitment to art and to one another, no matter where they stand.
