Info: culturecrawl.ca

Following last weekend’s virtual presentation, the participating artists in the 25th edition of the Eastside Culture Crawl open their doors to visitors. Among the artists welcoming guests is David Wilson, who will preview his latest collection, Day Into Night. Along with noisy street pictures, Wilson shows more formally daring experiments. Another painter, Kate MacDonald, presents work on a pandemic theme. She describes the pieces as follows: “Intricate foliage and garden waste suggest pandemic anxiety about suffocation, deprivation and grief. Lovers are trapped in rocks and shrubbery, a woman has planted herself, a tempting view exists just out of reach for moments stopped for further reflection. “
