WAM Feb 23-24 Newfoundland artists go to Venice

For painters, printmakers, sculptors, and installation artists, the Venice Biennale has long been the Holy Grail. Visitors, upwards of a half-million of them, make the pilgrimage to the Island city, attending the bi-annual event which showcases some of the art world's unique and contemporary practitioners. This year, two of those exhibiting their work alongside the canals will be Peter Wilkins and Will Gill, both headquartered here in Newfoundland. They join host Mack Furlong in the Weekend Arts Magazine Studio
