Looking for something new, fun, and creative to do this Spring? Brooks Public Library has you covered:The Walkabout Paintings
Brooks Public Library has a new art exhibit in the Gallery: The Walkabout Paintings
by Paul Woodrow, a professor in the University of Calgary's Fine Arts Department. Woodrow's paintings intertwine conscious and unconscious thoughts and are meant to reflect the geography of the mind. It's a stimulating exhibition and it's only here until the end of April. This exhibit is sponsored by the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and the Esplanade Arts and Heritage Center.
