The last stop on the second Love Art in Calgary tour was at the home of Wendy Lees. Similar to house concerts, home exhibition spaces are beginning to crop up around the city. Wendy is a firm believer in advocating for artists, musicians and people in general and generates so much positivity in terms of the community by opening doors, not only to commercial venues in the city, intimate arts spaces, but also, she opens the doors to her heart.
It was a wonderful thing to meet Thai Le Ngo and her partner, Phil. Thai shared with the group, a number of stories from her journey as a visual artist and experiences of travel and plein air painting. I was impressed by her prolific nature and the immediacy of her work. It was lovely to end the day with a glass of wine and quiet conversation and camaraderie. Thank you to Wendy Lees for another enlightening art tour!
