Artist Talk with Susanna Blunt
Cityscape Community ArtSpace
Saturday, July 20, 1pm

Join us on Saturday, July 20 at 1pm for a talk with exhibiting artist, Susanna Blunt.

Susanna invites us to take part in a discussion on new ways to interpret art. Artists are explorers and translators, creating maps and imagery for you to delve into and explore. This event will be an opportunity to learn from the artist, the exhibition, and each other.

For the discussion, we ask you to bring an image of a work of art that you love, a piece that has inspired you. We will then discuss how these works can affect us and why.

Susanna Blunt was born in China and grew up in British Columbia before moving to London, UK to undertake a scholarship at the world-renowned Royal Academy of Arts. Blunt is a designer and artist, and is best known as a portrait painter, for which she has traveled widely for international commissions.

In 2002, Blunt was invited to participate in an international competition to create a portrait of The Queen for the Royal Canadian Mint.  Her portrait was chosen, and is featured on all coins minted since 2003, with The Queen, at her request, portrayed for the first time without a crown.

Since the early 1990’s she has been creating sculpture full-time along with, painting and mixed media installation. Susanna Blunt lives and works in North Vancouver.
