Take your Zoom backdrop to the next level

Virtual meetings have become part of our everyday lives. Whether it is for work, school or keeping in touch with loved ones, video calls are now the norm for most of us. Have you taken time to create a dedicated online meeting spot in your home? Along with an eye-level camera and soft lighting directly on your face, a beautiful piece of artwork behind you can make a huge difference on the impression you give while on a call, or in a meeting or workshop. Zoom-worthy original art can be up on your wall in days!!

The Tooth Doctors, Arts in our Community's newest venue and we recently asked them what it was that got them involved in Arts in Our Community.

In the words of Tamara Wong, our proprietor at Tooth Doctors:

How we got involved -
 We had almost the same artwork in our front office for about 8 years-- it was beautiful but our front desk staff was getting tired of looking at the same thing. We were going to head to Homesense to buy some new art for the office. We looked but never really found anything that caught our eye. It was around then that we happened to go to the Millpond Medical centre and saw some beautiful artwork there. While in the waiting room I was looking at the art and saw the sign that said it was from a local artist and the SSAC. That's when I knew it would be perfect. We had a big empty wall to fill with great lighting. If we could display the artwork created by artists from our area, it'd be such a win-win situation that I had to look into it!
