Toney Onley Artists Project, Island Mountain Arts
At the time that I'm writing this, beautiful British Columbia is on fire.
My little city has had to evacuate, a thick blanket of smoke blows through Wells, BC where I worked the past 9 days at Island Mountain Arts.
Despite the anxiety and uncertainty, artists still worked, mentors Joseph Sanchez and Shary Boyle gave their time and guidance, and we came together for a brief show.
So thankful for this time of creative outpouring and safety in the midst of fire. Thanks to IMA for having me, and to our mentors Joseph and Shary.
Final exhibited piece: Hangang I, oil on canvas. 26"x30". 2017
