The Royal Art Lodge. The name itself conjures images of secret ritual practices, exclusive membership, brave stands taken against the elements. But this is not your father's lodge, nor even your father's art lodge. A collaborative of eight young, wildly inventive, modestly self-effacing Canadian artists--
The Royal Art Lodge enjoys a far-ranging and free-wheeling practice, producing everything from works on paper to film, video, musical performances, and puppets, with drawing, that most personal and immediate of art forms, providing the link between the various products of their whimsey.
