The McMillan Arts Centre (MAC) held an unveiling of 10 paintings in a unique art project as part of BC Culture Days in Parksville this weekend.

Each painting was a collaborative effort by three artists, who were assigned a third of the canvas, but did not know what their partners were creating.

The project, known as the ‘Exquisite Corpse’ was unveiled at the Upstairs Lounge in Parksville’s Quality Foods on Oct. 2.

The first “Exquisite Corpse” was a surrealist art game invented in Paris in 1925, in which a collection of images were collaboratively created, according to the BC Culture Days website.

The paintings will be auctioned off through the MAC’s website until 8 p.m. on Oct. 6.
