Trip to the art gallery & OOTD!

The FULL SPECTRUM exhibit is currently on display at the Living Arts Centre in Mississauga  until February 28th. It’s a great activity to add a little local culture to your life! The best part is…it’s FREE!

I first came across this exhibit while reading the local newspaper and the beautiful bright and abstract paintings instantly captured my attention. I thought of how great of an afternoon trip it would be to check it out!

I was pleasantly surprised with the array artwork and definitely recommend going!

A few pictures from my visit

^ This was my absolute favourite painting, this is the one that caught my attention right away!

^ Now this… the picture does not even do this work of art justice! It was so magnificent in person and I just loved the painting on the back wall to tie it all together!  Truly stunning!

^ Such a beautiful wall, I couldn’t resist taking a picture by it!

Details of the Exhibit: 

“Full Spectrum highlights a collection of bold and energetic new works in contemporary painting. Through a kaleidoscope of colour and visceral techniques this eclectic group of emerging artists transform the exhibition space into a visual wonderland inundated with exquisite vibrancy. Identifiable as risk takers, artists featured break rules, and in doing so break new ground in painting through a range of subject matter from portraiture to landscape, geometric to the abstract, revealing leading trends in practice.

Artists include: Tyler Armstrong, Julie Gladstone, Erin Loree, Christina Mazzulla, Kyle Tonkens “

Outfit Details:

Because I checked out a totally cool exhibit, my outfit had to be equally as interesting (of course!)

I had WAY to much fun posing for pictures in this outfit! When I first saw this fringe sweater on Forever 21.com I wasn’t sure I could pull it off but once I opened it my mind quickly changed. It was final sale so I went out on a limb and bought it and I can say I’m glad I did!  It also vest style as well a grey colour in the sweater and still available online (I’m so tempted to now pick up this one too!) << I’ve provided a direct link above to this sweater on the Canadian website for ease of searching! 🙂

I paired it with a plain white v-neck tee (Urban Planet), ripped black jeans (Blue Notes), layered choker necklace (Spring Shoes), and studded leather ankle booties (Aldo.)

Thanks for stopping by!

XOXO
