One of this year’s featured exhibitions, Snowbirds, is a glimpse at a community of retired Quebec residents who spend their winters in the Florida sun. The good news is you don’t need to claim Quebec as your birthplace to enjoy this social documentary of life in a trailer park in the “sunshine state.” Snowbirds from all over the country can enjoy seeing themselves reflected in these photos of winter escape.
The artist, Mika Goodfriend, was born in Montreal, yet always felt somewhat distanced from the Quebecois identity. His works are unique in that they explore what “being a Quebecois means to him.” Goodfriend is currently completing a Masters in Fine Arts at Concordia University.
