This weekend I took a break from my exhibit preparations to attend a national conference in Halifax for CARFAC, an organization that promotes the visual arts and defends the rights of professional Canadian artists in all corners of our country. This not only gave me the opportunity to meet and talk with artists from across Canada, but I also attended several sessions on important issues for all artists in our country. We have made progress, but on several fronts, artists still struggle for the respect and recognition allowed so many other professions. Thankfully we have national associations determined to push forward. I applaud my fellow artists coast to coast to coast.
