At our first Members Meeting of the 23/24 season, Linda Ruscio launched this year’s collaborative painting mosaic to be permanently installed in the lobby of Tony Wong Place (25 Deverill Ct, Markham). All 32 sections for the mosaic have been claimed and will meet on September 30th at the Village Hive (55 Albert St Suite 100, Markham) from 10-noon to see how surrounding panels are fitting.
