Q&A with Tony Bloom and John Borrowman: How the Arts Got Started in Canmore
Canmore has a long and exciting history with the arts. Come and learn about how things really got started in the 1970s with two of the folks who were there: Mayor, and potter, John Borrowman, and sculptor Tony Bloom. Founders of Stonecrop Studio, they came to a small coal mining town and shook things up, just a little. The evening will be a Q&A format, and John and Tony will be featuring some of their early work and artifacts from their lives and practices in Canmore. They also invite audience members to bring pieces of work that they own which Tony or John have created! There will be an opportunity to interact with these pieces of history and ask John and Tony a few questions after their talk. Join us at 7:00 on the 19 September at the Civic Centre to learn more.
