In 2017, I was fortunate to be part of a group of 30 artists participating in a project organized by Arteast to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. It was a maple leaf montage called “Canada In Leaf”, on which each artists painted a small portion of the maple leaf with something symbolizing Canada. My contribution was an acrylic painting of the “Three Sisters” mountain peaks of Canmore, Alberta, and the painting can be seen at the bottom of the maple leaf.
The assembled maple leaf artwork was displayed at the Shenkman Arts Centre during the Canada 150 celebration activities. It now found a permanent home at the entrance of the Nepean Public Library, 101 Centrepointe Drive, Ottawa.
A plaque listing all the contributing artists has been recently created and was installed next to the artwork on July 11, 2018.
