7:30 pm to 9:00 pm
For East Vancouver artist Lori Goldberg, there are no fences between her house, garden studio, and neighbour’s backyards. On March 5 at 7:30pm, you’ll hear how these “limitless boundaries” in many areas of her life are so important to her creative process. Goldberg says, “Curiosity, experimentation, and engagement of all my senses are the guiding forces that assist me to create unique and original art. My personal experiences inform my work but through the process of exploration, the work goes beyond the individual into universal truths.” Enjoy an evening where Goldberg will take listeners on a journey that begins in her formative years and winds itself to the present.
