For the past two years Denise Buisman Pilger has been working on a series of 34 artworks called ‘Discoveries: Montreal’. In this series she explores the boroughs on the island of Montreal, capturing the iconic and quirky details that make every borough unique, turning each into a one-of-a-kind mixed media panel. Now that the series is almost completed the artist wants to give each of you the opportunity to own the entire series in the form of a high quality art book.
To help realize this dream the artist has created an IndieGoGo crowd sourcing campaign to raise funds to help with the costs of creating the book. There are some amazing rewards ranging from personalized cards and high quality prints to acknowledgements in the book and signed copies.
