|On The Lake Photographs, cotton, thread, satin, stitched, 40" x 20" 1989|
Being part of this important collection of Canadian contemporary art is something I have always been proud of, and it was quite interesting to visit the art bank's new website. I found out that there are 3.000 artists represented in the Canada Council Art Bank and 17,000 pieces! New to the site is an excellent way to search the collection (here). What it says about my piece - here.
Because this search says that On The Lake is 'unavailable' I emailed the art bank and found out that my art work has been rented out for several years to a client in Ottawa. It's nice to know that. The exhibition Art Bank Expose: A Selection of Artworks from the Canada Council Art Bank continues in Toronto until January 16 at First Canadian Place Gallery.
