19 artists welcome visitors into their studios, sharing their work with the public. Painters in oils, acrylics, and watercolours, as well as sculptors, comic book artists, wood workers, crafters and writers will open their dens of creativity and demystify their processes for the public. Some works will be for sale, some just for show. Among the participants: Adam Leith Gollner, winner of the Quebec Writers’ Federation’s Mavis Gallant Prize for Non-Fiction for The Book of Immortality, will be in his studio chatting and selling books; Kate Puxley, multidisciplinary artist and taxidermist, welcomes visitors into her unique world; conceptual artist Petra Mueller exhibits her latest watercolour project about kissing; Dan Svatek, drummer for the band The Rejecters, will be showing off his latest comics and oil paintings; and Heidi Barkun, mixed media artist, will be unveiling her newest wax paintings and sculptures, and selling her reclaimed wood frames and mirrors.
The Long Haul is situated at 450/454 Beaumont Avenue, Montreal, H3N 1T3.
