Guest Artists

Margot Paris

Margot Paris is a Canadian artist who splits her artistic life between Canada & France. My work is founded on the process of seeing and drawing from life. With training in architecture, my artistic practice includes plein air sketching, painting, and collage. Poetic sculptural works use ’sarments de vigne’ (prunings of the vineyard) and other cast-offs of the wine making process.

Mark Glavina

Mark Glavina studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Capilano College and has worked as a teacher and illustrator with various contracts, including background painting for animation as well as private contracts and commissions, and has established a reputation as a muralist. In the 90’s he turned to developing his own fine art, exploring environmental and cultural issues, as well as working with the figure and portrait. Mark has been teaching and facilitating art for over 20 years, encouraging the benefits of art education for all ages, and is a pioneer of Community Public Art.
