So this is where it started...
Mid-wild-hot-summer, the gallery window at Matilda Gallery Art Bar gets smashed in the middle of the night.
Plywood Is Up!
Thanks to the community - we had a quick plywood installation put up - and as much as it was cute, it wasn't cute enough..
Matilda Gallery & Art Bar
Opened in 2023, Stratford-based Matilda Gallery & Art Bar expands what we offer visitors and artists alike. In our Art Bar, visitors can enjoy a glass of wine and a snack while exploring the gallery, taking in live music, and connecting with like minded people. The Art Bar is a multifunctional space set up for artist-led workshops, performances, private events, adult birthday parties, date nights, studio rentals and more!
Emergency murals are a thing.
I free-handed this mural in about 20 minutes with a pencil, looked through my stash of paints, and started painting.
The only thing I was thinking was:
JOY, RESILIENCE & FUN.
