Witnessing an ongoing workshop at Ateliers De Creation while visiting Montreal gives me the gift of acceptance. Acceptance that learning is a continuous journey. Regardless of one’s age or field, the real art is not in reaching the peak but in growing as we traverse the valleys and fields, through plains and plateaus.
Yes, every artist was once an amateur and every art is a lifestyle…..Art is not a hobby, it’s a way of life. And one’s life is one’s greatest masterpiece, everything else is just an accessory for what is a paint without a brush, and what good is a brush if one can’t produce a painting, and yet what is a painting without a heart.
Yes, one’s life is a continuous workshop, just like what i witnessed in Ateliers De Creation.
I was blown away when i saw this blown glass sculpture by the world renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly right at the stairs of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts! This beautiful floral formation of Persian Colonnade is truly a masterpiece. No photos can ever give justice to its beauty and that’s an understatement.
Located in Downtown Calgary and known as the Largest Museum in Western Canada, i visited this museum and was taken back to the 80’s and beyond. The featured theme that time was Made in Calgary, an art exhibition of everything made in Calgary. From paintings, sculptures, crafts , installations and other mediums. House in several storeys, every storey narrates a story. Explorations and Fur, Festivals and History, Truly worth a visit!
