The Last Art Exhibition by James Picard
Like many creative Canadians before him, James Picard has been wooed by our southern neighbours and like those before, he is packing up and heading to Los Angeles. It comes as no surprise as Picard is one of the most talented artists in the country. He has been spending a major part of his time in California over the last decade and has built a solid foundation there with collectors, fans and art lovers in the city of Angels that welcomes him with open arms. This move will enable Picard to become what he truly is, an artist that is world class and belongs on the world’s stage.
James Picard: The Last Art Exhibition will take place on August 18th from 6pm-11pm and will be open for two days after on August 19th and 20th from 11am – 7pm for those who can’t make the official closing party on Thursday evening.
The closing of Picard Studios Granville will be open to the public on all event days and will feature a vast array of Picard’s watercolours, ink and pencil drawings and oil and acrylic paintings and many new pieces which have never been seen before this date.
There is special 3 day pricing for this event, so if you haven’t started your Picard Collection, now is the time.
Along with the art, Picard Merchandise is also available; T-Shirts, Books and Travel mugs.
