Creek Works in Progress – Julien Judoin-Eng
On December 2, the Ross Creek Community Gallery CreekWorks will host works from artist-in-residence Julien Jodoin-Eng. Jodoin-Eng has been a Ross Creek artist for the past two years, painting on canvas and designing and building an eco-cabin on the property, combining his passions for design and environmental responsibility. His new works reflect these interests, with their stunningly realized figures of imagined animals in geometric landscapes.
