Exposition de la Canadian Society For Art Of Imagination

This past wednesday I attended a beautiful and inspiring exhibition at the Écomusée du fier Monde, close to Sherbrooke Metro. I caught the tail end of the opening night, and didn't get a chance to finish looking at all the art, but I definitely plan to go back, it was fantastic. There is another week left to see the original works which come from both local and international artists.

Graffiti Artists, or (should we be saying) Mural Artists?  

Many people know Chris Dyer through the alternative fine art world, visionary art world, skateboard scene, and in some cases, some people know his graffiti art & sticker art best. On Thursday I dropped in and out of the street art jam that was in progress between four artists. Apparently what they were doing is called "bombing" which in their case they were bombing their old art. Being as I don't come from that subculture (I know Chris through more of the hippie scene), I am not familiar with the terms. I know Chris as another professional artist, so I consider what Chris & the other artists are doing to be free mural art. The city & local businesses are lucky when artists choose to do their work for free (even if it is an ally-way, we don't have to have seedy gross allies) and should really at least be paying for the supplies. This provided of course that the graffiti is good quality and not just a bit mess or something stupid.

 If you want to check out the art, you can see it in the ally way between St.Laurent & Clark, a approx. one block below Duluth on the plateau.
