Last Friday September 25th 2015 a small group of WASM members got together to visit “Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition” at the Palais de Congres. While the audio tour lasted an hour and a half, many members stayed for almost three hours. Since people stayed at the exhibit for varying durations, they did not meet for coffee afterwards, but did enjoy the time together as they admired the intricate replicates of Michelangelo’s famous frescoes. The exhibition is in Montreal until October 24th and is definitely worth a visit!
This past Tuesday September 29th 2015 was our second event held at McCord Museum: Shari Blaukopf, a water colour artist of Montreal. She discussed Urban Sketchers Montreal, a non-profit organization that aims to foster a community of artists who appreciate and participate in on-location sketching. Their mission is to promote the value of on-location sketching and to connect those within its community. Urban Sketching Montreal meets on the fourth Sunday to draw and welcomes everybody to join. Urban Sketching Montreal has taken places in locations such as Atwater market, Little Italy, and Mont Royal.
