In the Art of the Village
Headed down to the Gay Village today to check out the arts festival that Tornwordo mentioned in yesterday’s posts. The 8th edition of the Festival International Montréal en Arts (FIMA) is taking place this weekend along Ste-Catherine East from St-Hubert to Papineau and features some really cool stuff. What a great way to enjoy art, strolling along outdoors under summer skies. A mix between crafts and visual arts, not everything may appeal to all tastes but you will definitely find a few pieces that delight, attract, intrigue, perplex, or affect you in some way or other. I of course, lingered at the jewellery kiosques but I also enjoyed browsing the different styles of paintings on display. Purchasing a painting might be a bit too pricey for some but one can always opt for a more affordable notecard or magnet. In any case, whether you’re an art connoisseur or not, it’s a nice way to spend a weekend afternoon in the city.
The festival runs for another day tomorrow on Sunday, noon to 6 p.m.
