An accomplished and dynamic performer, Watson’s fiery stage presence has earned her national and international recognition. Her artistic style is an eclectic influence of Jazz, Soul, Folk and Rock that pushes the boundaries of traditional Blues into a whole new dimension.

How does the artist find her subject, start a painting, know where to go and when to stop, in other words, wanting to know the tricks that make the magic. Since Modernism, art has become self-conscious and less concerned with creating illusions than in pointing them out. The materials of the painter are ‘the stuff that dreams are made of’ and they play a major role in our experience both as makers and viewers of works of art. Caroline Hart has been painting and exhibiting for over two decades. She currently teaches painting and drawing in the Studio Arts Department at Concordia University. www.carolinelindsayhart.com The Women’s Art Society of Montreal invites you to become a member of our group, where you can connect with like-minded people who enjoy the arts. We gather bimonthly on Tuesdays at the McCord Museum from 1:30 to 2:30 pm to listen to great talks. For more information visit: www.womensartsociety.com or call 514-495-3701. Founded in 1894 and incorporated in 1968, the Women’s Art Society of Montreal has played an important role in fostering awareness and understanding of the arts among the general public of the city. As one of the earliest organizations for women artists, the Women’s Art Society of Montreal helped pave the way for the integration of women into the art world. Nowadays, the Women’s Art Society is more social and educational than professional in nature since various opportunities and avenues of support are open to female artists. Related
