Every Wednesday and Thursday afternoon for the past ten years, Mark Brickman has joined his colleagues at the Indefinite Arts Centre to unleash his passion for painting, pottery and fibre artwork.
While listening to his favourite music, like the theme from the James Bond movie, Live and Let Die, Mark enjoys the freedom of artistic expression that not only advances his development as an artist, but also provides opportunities to showcase his creative abilities. In addition to painting gifts for his family, Mark's work has been featured in a solo show, in a calendar produced by the Centre, and two of his paintings were given to the Calgary offices of Ups and Downs: Calgary's Down Syndrome Association.
Visible minorities are poorly represented in Calgary arts.
Calgary has 35.7% visible minorities as a whole, but only 14% involved in the arts.
