Dip, Dip, & Swing - Event Recap

A variety of sculpture in wire, wood, concrete, clay and steel was displayed as well as a number of beautifully painted canoes and a memorable mirrored glass mosaic canoe.  Venues included Memorial Park, the greenspace and boardwalk by the Whitecap Pavilion and the Lake of the Woods Plaza walkway.  LOWAC’s Fun Monday group contributed 30 painted canoe paddles.  These were wired onto the railing at the boardwalk right in front of the MS Kenora - a great spot for visitors to view them before boarding the boat.


Retailers along Kenora’s Main and 2nd Streets supported the event by offering their front windows to display works of art.  Art quilts, multi-media work on hand-made paper, watercolours, acrylics and ceramic and wood sculpture were on view and supported the theme throughout the city’s downtown.   A printed and on-line catalogue sponsored by LOWAC advertised all the art - which was available in an online auction for 2 months this summer.
