The Waterloo Sketch Club presented its very own version of "Star Portraits",based on the popular tv show.  Our star this year is Mayor Brenda Halloran, who graciously consented to sit for us a few weeks ago at the Button Factory.  Our group has portrayed her in a variety of media, including acrylics, watercolours, ink, and collage!  The Mayor selected her favourite 3 pieces, and at the end of the show took home her First Choice!

Neighbours Mural for Pat the Dog's PieceMeal series

In this interpretation of Neighbours by Allie Bell, artist Jamie Quinn's aim was to tap into our collective memory as a society, and cause the viewer to use their critical, and cynical, eyes to analyze our shared world surroundings. With help from student volunteers, the group has created a striking visual piece called 'Foragers for Freedom', which reveals layers of sour notes about security, community and revolt.
