The works of art depicted here belong to Jennifer Cooper and myself. Jennifer designed the wonderful fish wall hanging that fits so perfectly into my colour scheme along with the mountain water scene on the bottom right hand corner.
This picture was taken by one of “The Cutting Edge Mixed Media Art Group” members.
I found the North Shore Art Crawl to be even better than a show as we had immediate contact with the public and received wonderful feedback as well.
“The Cutting Edge Mixed Media Art Group” also was very appreciative of the sponsorship and ‘artists grant’ received from the West Vancouver Arts Council used to participate in this event.
I would like to thank Norman and especially Sandrine for all the work they put into this project. It was an awesome experience.
