Art Mixer: May 25, 7pm – 10pm Life Drawing & Live Music…

“A Map of the Heavens” by Martha Jablonski-Jones

Our “Art Salon” event last month was so successful, we’re offering another one to celebrate  “New Altars for Old Gods”, the current exhibition of paintings by  Martha Jablonski- Jones.

Join us for an evening of live music, and life drawing, or simply to enjoy Martha’s wonder-filled work.

We’re honoured to have guest musician Peter Jack Rainbird of Courtenay, B.C. performing between 8 and 9:30pm.  Three sketching sessions are scheduled, with poses and movement provided by Yoga instructor Adrienne Wills. (During the breaks, ask Adrienne about the Yoga classes she’ll be offering this Fall at Artemis!)

Tokens for drawing boards & materials can be purchased upon arrival for $5.00 per session.

We’re delighted that Martha Jablonski-Jones will be attending the Art Mixer to discuss her work and offer her expertise to participants throughout the evening.  Her vibrant acrylic paintings in “New Altars for Old Gods” offer an exhilarated investigation into the lingering presence of the sacred in our secularized world.  The exhibition continues at Artemis until May 27th, Tuesday through Sunday, 12 to 5pm.
