Save the Sudbury Watertowers Art Show

Joel and I (but mostly Joel) organized an art show at the local Fromagerie to save the Sudbury watertowers, which were slated for demolition…but now are saved!

We don’t expect anyone to give Joel credit for pretty much raising awareness in a city that doesn’t give a sh*t about most things cultural, but I want to put it on record that Joel is basically the reason these watertowers  were saved, by keeping the issue in the local media.

Just goes to show, blogs go a long way in small places. Read more about it at his Save the Sudbury Watertowers blog.

My watertower sketch (which I drew plein air about a year ago) went up in the show beside Joel’s. We were sitting in the same spot, so the sketches are pretty similar, the only difference being that mine has a bit of colour in it.
