Work of the Week: Dancer

Date: Apr 25, 2018

In celebration of National Dance Week, the Work of the Week for April 23 - 30, 2018 is Dancer by Steven Mack (1963 – 2009).

The artist Steven Mack focused primarily on life drawing/painting from 2000 to the year of his death in 2009. He spent more than two years (2005 – 2007) working almost exclusively with the model Kathryn (featured in this painting) and musician Amir Amiri in preparation for their interdisciplinary performance of “Body of 3” performed at The Grand Theatre in Calgary.
