One of the largest arts festivals in western Canada, the Eastside Culture Crawl happens right in Dudoc’s new neighbourhood. Along with hundreds of other artists, Dudoc Vancouver will showcase local painters and musicians with a four person exhibition and Saturday workshops for visitors.
On Friday evening, Nov. 17, it’s Dudoc Live! Known for his dynamic live painting, Thibault Sendra will actually create a new work right at Dudoc. Artist Barbara Arnold will introduce visitors to collaging techniques to use on a large piece which will be created during the two days. Boris Mandlis will create an art piece specially designed for Dudoc Vancouver presenting themes of radical hope, urbanscapes and living in harmony with nature. Mila Karavai will present her experimental mixed-media pieces in an exhibit along with the other artists. We will have drinks and music. Come and join in the action!
On Saturday, Nov. 18, visitors attending the Crawl can drop by for a warm drink and participate in creating a community art piece with Barbara Arnold. Young visitors can also try their hand at creating nature inspired toys to create their own ‘play’ facilitated by Purnima Malik and Julie Kertesz.
Workshops will run: 12-2 pm and 3-5 pm.
Warm drinks sponsored by Timbertrain Coffee and The Good Chocolatier will be served.
Over 25 artists in very nearby studios will be exhibiting their art. On Clark Drive, Yew WoodShop, Studio 580 Artist Collective and Space will feature their artists. Around the corner on McLean Drive, Porchlight Press will display some of their design work and also heritage printing equipment.
Visitors will also find out more about Dudoc Vancouver, a showroom for innovative European designs and services to better both our local and international communities. A World of Walas project, one of Dudoc’s goals is to build thriving communities and enhance their creative core.
