This was a fun and amazing project to be a part of. A wonderful collaboration of 35 artists painting individually and together to create the final Mosiac. With special thanks and recognition to Lindsay Watson who headed up the project with assistance from Marian Hazelwood and Christine Yurchuk.

The Mural Mosaic is a project to mark the 50th anniversary of the Port Moody Art Association (1967 – 2017). This work, by 35 PMAA artists, uses a master image of a Port Moody heron. After dividing the photo image on a grid, each artist took a square and, using the lines and colours, created an individual work. They used Port Moody as a theme, honouring our connection with the area. From a distance, the work appears to be a heron roosting in a tree; up close, you discover hidden images showing the unique styles and original ideas of each painter.
