Canadian Authors-NCR Virtual Monthly Meeting
September 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Our Annual General Meeting and the launch of the 2021 National Capital Writing Contest: A celebration of the upcoming 100th anniversary of the Canadian Authors Association. This meeting will be held via Zoom.
At this meeting we will unveil:
- the painting that writers can use as inspiration for poems or short stories
- the theme
- an inspiration quote
The artwork will be provided by local artist, Brian Turner. Having entered the work force as an architectural draftsman at the age of 16, Brian worked part time and full time for numerous architects and engineers over a 14-year period while he completed his Bachelors and Masters degrees of Education with a Fine Arts major from Okanagan College and Brigham Young University. Brian has recently re-immersed himself in the medium of watercolor after retiring from a 37-year teaching career. Brian’s artwork strives to express his deeply rooted love of the Canadian landscape which is a result of having lived in Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario along with his recurrent career related travels across Canada.
In his early years Brian illustrated numerous publications and articles. His production of artwork was laid aside during much of his teaching career and has been re-ignited in his current passion for watercolor.
