Inga's First Art Exhibit
We always feature Francis Woods on the news -and he's known for his socially progressive civil works projects. But while he oversees a construction empire, his daughter Inga Woods is a self-styled artist. She's mounted her first exhibit at the Bliss center and she gave us a preview today:..
Inga Woods, artist
"My exhibit is a lot about expressing yourself and it has a lot about colors and a lot of movement. A lot of them range from like either 15 minutes or just like a whole day of doing the wall paintings or all of the varied."
"You have any specific piece that you enjoy doing the most?"
"The glass crowns that I did. Definitely those are like my most prized possessions right now."
"Tell us a little bit about those?"
"They are in the glass case behind you and they took me quite a while because working with glass, you have to work with flames and you have to melt it down and move it to the way you want and when glass is hot it's almost like wet putty, like gel, just droops, so you have to learn to move it fast. I like working with my hands a lot so it makes it even easier just to move fast and just putting it in place and making it work together."
"It thought it was going to be like a good fresh start because I've never had an exhibit before simply because I wasn't ready and now I am ready and like I really want to try get my art career going forward, so I could support myself off of that and I think it's about time that I show people what I have and what potential I can do and like what I am ready to show - get people started to see what they like or what they don't like."
Her month- long exhibit opens on Friday at 6:00 at the Bliss Centre and is open to the general public.
