Launch for Amber Albrecht's Idyll
Friday May 18th, 7 pm
Montreal-based artist Amber Albrecht will be in store to launch her D+Q Petit Livre, Idyll. Albrecht's work is rooted in magic, folklore, and postfeminist neo-romanticism. Idyll comprises a series of screen prints and drawings. By turns, they are surreal, fantastical, and absurd. Join us for an evening of beautiful artwork, wine, and snacks.
