INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday

Today I want to share something special with everybody. Namely my favorite Artist Ria Engelen, she is a new and upcoming artist, so like her on Facebook. She has painted many paintings and sculpted many sculptures, however below you will find my favorite painting from her work so far.

The painting is called “The Seasons of Life”.

In this painting you can see an apple tree going through all the seasons. Starting at spring with beautiful apple blossom, getting apples in the summer and then losing all leafs in the fall and then starting over again after the winter has blown over.

Secondly, you can see the seasons of a woman’s life. Starting as a child, growing to be a woman in her prime and ending life as an older lady who has all the experience and memories to prove it.

You can also see the rising sun by day and the moon by night, which also can mean the rising dawn and the fall of dust, the beginning and the end.

However, everybody sees something different and for everybody art has different definitions. Do you want to share yours?

Just mail it in and win prizes!! 

Have a nice weekend.

PuSh: International Performing Arts Festival

Our dear candidates,

For some of you, this blog will be extremely interesting. The rest might just skip it because it is about CULTURE…

But let us tell you something:

The PUSH International Performing Arts Festival is not culture in the way you might know it. It is one of Vancouver’s signature events, presenting groundbreaking work in the live performing arts.

“The PuSh Festival expands the horizons of Vancouver artists and audiences with work that is visionary, genre-bending, multi-disciplined, startling and original. The Festival showcases acclaimed international, Canadian and local artists and mixes them together with an alchemy that inspires audiences, rejuvenates artists, stimulates the industry and forges productive relationships around the globe. The Festival is a broker of international partnerships, a meeting place for creative minds, a showcase of Canada’s best and an incubator of brilliant new work. The PuSh International Performing Arts Festival Society is a not-for-profit charitable organization. The PuSh International Performing Arts Festival is unique among the region’s festivals. Curated, multidisciplinary, international in scope—the Festival stands alone in its commitment to bring together critically acclaimed work from different disciplines under the umbrella of a single festival. The PuSh Festival highlights new ways of storytelling, new forms of staging, new approaches to combining disciplines, and new views on contemporary themes and issues.” (source:

The Festival takes places from January 18 – February 6, 2011 at several venues in Vancouver.
Some shows are for free, for the rest please check the homepage of PuSh.

If you are still not convinced, check out the festival yourself and get inspired!
