Artists for the Sacred Headwaters
A Spring Show in Whistler to support the Sacred Headwaters!
Paul Coangelo has given permission for participating artists across Canada to use photos of his enlarged images as reference material and inspiration for their own interpretation. In this show which runs until June 7, participating artists' work is hung beside the Paul Colangelo image that was the inspiration. To see the photos and Paul's interview with Wade Davis on the history and importance of this area, go to: www.sacredheadwatersjourney.com
