The beautiful red brick Roundhouse community Center is in the heart of Yaletown right on the water. You could not imagine a more beautiful building and setting.
Deborah Bakos - our wonderful curator and fearless leader moves some beautiful abstract pieces to make the presentation just right. The caliber of art coming in blew me away. It will be a feast for the eyes to see this final show!!!

Artists in Our Midsts Featured Artist of the Month – Deb Chaney, Contemporary Abstract Artist
Here is the unedited interview with Artist in Our Midsts, Vancouver. I am grateful for this opportunity to be featured on the group website. Thank you!
What process or technique in art-making interests you?What intrigues me is creating thick paintings that have thick multi layered encaustic wax-like effect, yet no wax has been used, instead the layer are accumulations of acrylics and mediums.. The process of applying and layering acrylics and mediums, scraping away paint, and doing so without leaving brush marks intrigues me.
What technical challenges do you face in the process of making art?
What in your artistic training do you value most at this time?
