Chris MacClure- Romantic Realism
Chris MacClure - Golden Cactus Studio - Listed Canadian Artist 1943-




Today, as we watch, mesmerized by the kerfuffle unfolding on the world stage, it is easy to forget the
wonders and beauty all around us. Art has always, and will always, remind us that ‘This too shall pass.’ The
human condition has been, and will forever be, captured by artists, and our great museums and galleries
depict this ongoing saga on their walls. Untouched by human folly, our world continues to spin, unaffected
by our mundane concerns.
Art is truly a gift, and the happiness a piece of art can inspire is timeless. Even a small piece of work
chosen with love can uplift the soul. For artists, capturing this timeless essence is a lofty goal but brings
such peace that it’s worth the effort, even in times when all seems lost. Artists persevere regardless of
what is happening but tend to get lost and forgotten in the milieu.
As the holidays approach, Chris & Marilyn at the Golden Cactus Studio invite you to a ‘smallish works’
event on Thursday, December 7th, from 3 PM to 8 PM at our location, 14833 Marine Drive, on the
waterfront. The idea is to offer art at affordable prices—’STOCKING STUFFER PRICES’—because we
know that, although things appear dire, ‘THIS TOO SHALL PASS.’ A gift of art to yourself or for others
will uplift the heart and spirit.
Parking prices have dropped to $2.50 per hour, and we’re happy to cover your parking if your purchase
exceeds $50. We’ll also be offering a little holiday ‘cheer.’ Please mark it on your calendar.
See you then, hugs C & M.
