Take a break from online shopping, and venture into the world to see, hear and talk about art this week!

Emilie Leclerc Côté

I’m back after having miraculously survived these last two weeks of end-of-term madness! December has crept up on us, and the holidays are fast approaching. My advice: shop online and spend your time checking out these picks of the week instead of in crowded malls…
