Living Artfully free pdf The extreme west coast is often characterized as the most "out there" edge of Canada and has become known internationally for artists residing in the region and giving it their own particular flavour. Living Artfully: Reflections from the Far West Coast offers unique perspectives and insights to the interrelationship of creativity and geography through intimate portrayals about the lives of artists. Writers, painters, carvers, and performers reflect on the private spaces of the arts-inner worlds and natural environments-and the public spaces-exhibiting, performing and sharing. Artists delve into their life journeys, the struggles and challenges as well as the joys and rewards of pursuing expression out here.Forty-two emerging and established artists have contributed to this collection, including award-winning First Nations playwright and poet Janet Rogers- painter, writer and arts advocate Robert Amos- internationally noted artists Avis Rasmussen and Mark Hobson, renowned author Susan Musgrave- award-winning film maker Velcrow Ripper- and from the academy, dancer and educator Celeste Snowber, professor emeritus Bill Zuk and many more voices that shape what it means to live artfully on the far west coast.
