Our Production Centre and Apollo Room were transformed over our temporary closure! PAVED Arts was thrilled to host Jo Van Lambalgen of Althaus Murals as our Artist-in-Residence for 6 weeks in August and September.
With so few people in our spaces during our closure, we saw an opportunity to safely invite an artist into the space and create two permanent murals for our membership to enjoy.
Thank you, Jo and thank you to SK Lotteries and the City of Saskatoon for their generous support in making our Artist in Residence Mural Project possible.
Jo Van Lambalgen is a queer, interdisciplinary artist in Saskatoon, SK, with a focus on large scale geometric and abstract murals and artwork. Their background in the trades informs their work, transforming ordinary spaces with paint, simple building materials and ingenuity. Jo believes in the power of colour, and how it can transform any space into something amazing. Jo is co-owner of Alt Haus in Saskatoon, a colourful home décor, furniture and lifestyle store, which they run with their partner Miranda Young. Jo and Miranda also work together on residential and commercial interior design projects, with an emphasis on “happy design.” @althausmurals and @althausyxe
