Leighton Artist's Colony - Fishing Boat Studio
Part of the Leighton Artist's Colony at The Banff Center, The Henriquez Studio is in an old, refurbished fishing boat about 10 metres long.
Designed by The inspiration for this "studio in a boat" was derived from the desire to create a link with the past by bringing an artifact to Banff with a history of its own. The studio is in an old, refurbished fishing boat about 10 metres long. Its exterior has been restored to its original lines while the interior has been refitted to fulfil the functional needs of an artist: a small galley for snacks, a bunk area and washroom.
