Local artists hosting Gallery Walk and Talk

Megan Long and Judith DesBrisay want to open a dialogue about their work

Local artists Judith DesBrisay and and Megan Long are leading an artist Walk and Talk next Thursday, Nov. 1 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The artists are currently running a show out of the Quesnel Art Gallery called Inspirations, where they drew on work of artists who inspire them to come up with a show of their own.

Together they picked six works by artists they care about, and individually four more, and then each painted 10 individual works, drawing on the aspect of each painting, sculpture or photo that inspired them — aspects such as a particular line or colour, for example.

DesBrisay and Long will walk around the Gallery, speaking about each painting and opening a dialogue to answer any questions people may have or listen to their comments and ideas.

The artists are hopeful the event will work as an exchange of ideas, and allow guests to discovery the elements of each piece which inspire them.

All are welcome and the event is free; light refreshments will also be provided.
