What I can’t say, I paint
Opening in the Gallery tonight:

“Some of the paintings focus on our voyeuristic urge, to watch, to judge without thinking for ourselves and a few others are more positive like being part of a supportive structure, being right in the middle of that drastic change we want to see.”Join Pru and ourselves at the opening this Thursday at 7pm to preview this thought-provoking exhibition.

Their Americana music – sorry, Canadiana music – and songwriting and storytelling flow between humour and heartache with sincerity and optimism.
