ST-HENRI ART HIVE
On Wednesday mornings, a group of friends meets around the long tables at the St-Henri Art Hive to share artistic techniques, personal stories, and their time with one another. The space, a nondescript storefront one block south of the highway, is unique in the city for its collectively-designed, shared garden in the back, its creative reuse centre in the basement, and, of course, for its remarkable community members, who often become friends. For “Intersections,” they were asked to reflect on how and where the city is important to them, both in their autobiographies and in their future lives. Primarily sculptural, the works on display from the Saint-Henri Art Hive are visual expressions of their feelings–both of frustration and affection—about the city they call home.
