Christopher Luna and Toni Partington's contributions to Vancouver's Community Constellation, a collaborative art piece

I am very proud to have been among those invited to contribute to the Community Constellation, a collaborative art project in which several artists were gicven a small, round wooden circle upon which to create a piece on the theme of "community." These circles were then connected together and displayed at the Brickhouse Bar and Grill (109 W 15th St, http://www.vancouverbrickhouse.com/) and later at The Space (2315.5 Main St., behind One World Merchants, http://thespaceartcollective.blogspot.com/). Here is a photograph that I took of the piece as it appeared in The Space:


Colleen Lindsay, who is one of the founding members of The Space, wrote a great article about the project: http://www.vanvoice.com/article/20686-art+goes+round

My thanks to Colleen Lindsay for inviting me to contribute to this unique project. Her role as  a local muse and mentor has inspired all of us. I would also like to thank those in Vancouver who continue to support my work. I am very proud to be a part of this growing community of artists. Art is happening in the 'Couve!
