Clarkson Society of Artists had a wonderful show the weekend of April 12th, 13th and 14th. The weather co-operated, crowds came to the Friday opening and all weekend. There was a great vibe in the beautiful rooms at Visual Arts Mississauga. The introduction of a People’s Choice Award created a buzz and members noticed an increased interest in visitors really viewing the art and making choices for their vote. Younger people were encouraged to participate and to discuss features of the art that they enjoyed. It was exciting for members to see this increased interest and appreciation in the actual work.
