Robin Phillips: A Life in Colour Reception
On April 21, 2022, we gathered with more than one hundred* of our friends, family, and friends who have become family to celebrate the work and life of our beloved wife, mother, sister, and friend Robin Phillips (*and that’s not including those who were with us in spirit✨).
Surrounded by—indeed immersed in—a room of Robin’s vibrant, beautiful artwork and a beautiful floral arrangement by Angela at Lovella Lifestyle, those in attendance raised their glasses, shared memories, and celebrated Robin’s life and legacy while enjoying some of Robin’s favourite tunes by Terry Jorden, food by Tres Carnales and the Art of Cake, and a great selection of celebratory drinks.
Thank you Lynn and Stephen Mandel, the entire team at the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Art, and everyone who contributed and attended for making the exhibition and reception celebration so memorable and beautiful.
The exhibition will be up until April 29, 2022 at 9225 118 Ave NW Edmonton, AB T5G 0K6 (gallery hours: Monday – Friday: 9AM-3PM).
Anyone interested in staying informed about Robin’s legacy initiatives—which could include future opportunities to purchase her artwork!—is invited to join Robin’s mailing list. We promise to only send joyful updates that Robin would approve of!
Until next time, we wish you what Robin would have wished—love, laughter, and muchos smooches! 💋😘
