EditorArticle, Shatford Centre / OSArts0 Comments

The Okanagan School of the Arts is pleased to introduce Bill Blair. Bill has a wonderful talent of bringing unique and interesting found objects together in unusual settings. Plan to sign up for his workshop from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm, January 27th, 2018! Cost is $85.

Bill Blair is a mixed-media artist living in Penticton. Since the early 1980s, he has been creating photomontage images which play off themes of Canadiana and Mexicana, exploring ideas of 20th-century romantic travel ideals, souvenir culture and identity in North America. His artistic practice also encompasses mixed-media assemblages and wall shrines – described by the Vancouver Sun as “dashboard art” – incorporating found objects and vintage guitars. His work has been exhibited in Canada and internationally.
