The FULL SPECTRUM exhibit is currently on display at the Living Arts Centre in Mississauga until February 28th. It’s a great activity to add a little local culture to your life! The best part is…it’s FREE!
I first came across this exhibit while reading the local newspaper and the beautiful bright and abstract paintings instantly captured my attention. I thought of how great of an afternoon trip it would be to check it out!
I was pleasantly surprised with the array artwork and definitely recommend going!
A few pictures from my visit
^ This was my absolute favourite painting, this is the one that caught my attention right away!
^ Now this… the picture does not even do this work of art justice! It was so magnificent in person and I just loved the painting on the back wall to tie it all together! Truly stunning!
^ Such a beautiful wall, I couldn’t resist taking a picture by it!
Details of the Exhibit:
“Full Spectrum highlights a collection of bold and energetic new works in contemporary painting. Through a kaleidoscope of colour and visceral techniques this eclectic group of emerging artists transform the exhibition space into a visual wonderland inundated with exquisite vibrancy. Identifiable as risk takers, artists featured break rules, and in doing so break new ground in painting through a range of subject matter from portraiture to landscape, geometric to the abstract, revealing leading trends in practice.
Artists include: Tyler Armstrong, Julie Gladstone, Erin Loree, Christina Mazzulla, Kyle Tonkens “
Because I checked out a totally cool exhibit, my outfit had to be equally as interesting (of course!)
I had WAY to much fun posing for pictures in this outfit! When I first saw this fringe sweater on Forever 21.com I wasn’t sure I could pull it off but once I opened it my mind quickly changed. It was final sale so I went out on a limb and bought it and I can say I’m glad I did! It also vest style as well a grey colour in the sweater and still available online (I’m so tempted to now pick up this one too!) << I’ve provided a direct link above to this sweater on the Canadian website for ease of searching! 🙂
I paired it with a plain white v-neck tee (Urban Planet), ripped black jeans (Blue Notes), layered choker necklace (Spring Shoes), and studded leather ankle booties (Aldo.)
Thanks for stopping by!
