Going with the flow with Becky

October 16 2016

For a day, the internationally-renowned canoeist, Rebecca Mason, swapped her paddle for a hammer to hang her latest art show entitled “Deeper Waters”.  At the opening on October 6th, Becky explained to the visitors how each of her watercolors was inspired by the emotions she felt while paddling on rivers across the world, from the Tiber in Rome to the Danube in Croatia.  By dipping her paddle in the water, this nature lover brings to the surface the secrets of the past which she reveals with her delicate and airy brushstrokes.

Immerse yourself in this artist’s fascinating universe by visiting her exhibition which will be at La Fab until October 30th.

Visit also her web site and read the article published about her in the Low Down.

“As I drifted into deeper waters I watched the river bottom turn darker, the air felt colder, and I could feel the ghosts of the war surround me. This was not Canada.” Artist Rebecca Mason is also a world renowned canoeist and paddling instructor and has travelled extensively sharing her love for Canadian canoeing. This spring she spent some time teaching and paddling in Slovenia and Croatia and was very moved by her experiences there.

Opening hours:
Friday from 11 am to 5 pm, Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm, Sunday from 12 to 5 pm. Open Thanksgiving Monday.
