To start off the season at the Coutts Centre we are hosting a daylong Plein Air workshop with Mark Vazquez-MacKay.

Originally from Calgary, Mark Vazquez-Mackay is now based in Mexico City and is an Instructor at AUarts and represented by Eclipse Galeria in Mexico City and La Nave Art Lab in Los Angeles.

A large part of Mark’s practice is spent developing the creative community. Whether he is leading community mural projects, giving lectures, leading groups of learners on art retreats, or contributing to non-profit art organizations, Mark believes in giving back to the community to help it grow and share his vast knowledge.

“I’ve learnt how to collaborate with the environment as the landscape is a part of me.” – Mark Vazquez-Mackay
