here are links to one of the artists (Rita Leistner) we will be visiting virtually in Canada - very exciting.
Rita Leistner, is probably best known for her photojournalism in war zones.
She presented her most recent (long term) project, a feature documentary film and photography book on tree planters, which she just finished editing this week!
Here is a link to the trailer and her website

Many have expressed missing the gallery tours - (me to). To compensate I’ve organized with Claudia Sohrens a ZOOM international gallery tour. We will visit some 5/6 locations in Europe and USA - a combination of art Galleries and artists in their studios. It is exciting and different than other events.
