Women's Art Society of Montreal 2016

Here are some photos from this weekend's juried show. The new venue was the Grey Nuns' Residence Hall of Concordia University. Being an older building, it wasn't air-conditioned, but the light was very favourable. The venue provided all the easels, which made the "hanging" much easier for the installation team, as opposed to putting things on the wall and having to fuss with spacing.

A continuous slide show of all the entries was projected on a large screen at the back of the room.

Dianne's fabric collage (centre) took second place.
Heather's fabric collage (centre) got an honourable mention from the judges.

The past president, Cheryl Braganza, was able to attend the show on Sunday afternoon, despite struggling with a terminal and inoperable brain cancer. She was on a day pass from the palliative care unit at the Jewish General Hospital. She is much-loved and much-admired, an outspoken activist for social justice, dynamic and always positive. Members were delighted to see her at the show, and it seemed that she was thrilled to be there too.
