This Street Art is a 55 Foot Selfie Station!
The Schomberg Street Gallery Has Taken it to the Next Level
Schomberg Street Gallery
While this outdoor exhibition and sale of fine art has always been set against a backdrop of heritage buildings and century homes, now it will also be set against a backdrop of art itself! The mural will remain in place for at least 12 months.
Meet Andrea End
Andrea was a fixture on Main Street in May and June transforming the hoarding in front of the construction site at 214 Main into a beautiful piece of street art.
Andrea End is a visual artist whose inspiration is the sunlight - its colours and shapes that are created in the forests and on the lakes of the Canadian scenery. Her practice is informed by her photographic documentation of the countryside.
She has participated in numerous juried shows, group shows and solo shows, primarily in the Greater Toronto Area, and will be one of the artists at the Schomberg Street Gallery Sunday September 15. She was amongst the first group of artists to display their work at the Old Mill Art Gallery and Shoppe at 357 Main Street.
How It All Happened
This image was taken on April 8. The construction site is tidy, but one could hardly call it beautiful.
Watch the Transformation Unfold
Can you guess what the end product will look like?
On May 21, the image was projected onto the hoarding, allowing Andrea to trace the outline of her piece of art.
This visual art installation is an outcome of the generous support of Rona and Raycor Mechanical and the volunteer efforts of local artist and Street Gallery organizer Tom Wray.
