Back in 2014, our storage areas were bursting at the seams with surplus airplane parts. We asked the art community to bring new life to some unique pieces of “canvas.” A piece of scrap metal, loop antennas, pieces of exhaust—the vintage aircraft parts became one-of-a-kind art.
The finished pieces were donated back to the Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada for charitable fundraising.
Our first Airborne Art Project was so successful we invited artists to collaborate with us again. We’re very excited that the pieces are now starting to be unveiled and returned to us here at the museum.
Airborne Art Project is Back for 2016!
The art will be auctioned at our Out of The Blue Gala on Saturday, October 29, 2016. Mark the date!
Here, Sandy describes her work …
“I thoroughly enjoy the challenge of coaxing beauty from the old and discarded – re-thinking the original design and having a piece emerge with a stunning new look.”
Sandy Driscoll, works from her home studio in Sandy Hook, on Lake Winnipeg. A background in Interior Design, several years in the Graphic Arts industry and an appreciation of functional art, has merged into a natural love of creating beauty.
