THE UNIQUE FUSION OF BODYART AND COSTUMING, A HIGHLIGHT TO ANY EVENT
Whistler ArtWalk Weekend
Canada Day Weekend
Living Statues in Whistler Village
Greeting Guests with Champagne on Furry Creek Beach
Summer is over, snow is already falling on the Mountains around Whistler, which is set to open on November 28, for another full season of skiing and boarding. Summer in Whistler was good, the Whistler Arts Council employed PAINTERTAINMENT to perform with their form of live art and strolling characters throughout the village entertaining tourists and locals over the long weekends. The Summer performances started with an Underwater Themed weekend, which was fun, but maybe just a little too early in the summer, the hale storm that hit in the middle of the performance confirmed it. But our models stuck it out and braved it until the end. The Whistler Artwalk weekend followed, then Canada Day weekend, finishing off with Living Statues, including our live working, running Water Fountain Statue (The Fountain of Youth) which pretty much demanded a second take, before it was believed. In between the Whistler weekends PAINTERTAINMENT also managed to be part of a few other fun and interesting events in Vancouver, Victoria and Edmonton as well as Whistler. Samples linked below.
Hopefully you all had a great summer and that it continues that way with an amazing winter. Thank you
