Make the trek to the Seymour Art Gallery on Tuesday, October 16th!
Original art (including a couple of my pieces) for $100, $200 or $300. Why not sort out some Christmas/ Hanukkah/ secular Winter holiday presents early?! I do love checkin’ stuff off a list.
This is gonna be fun times, folks!
Come to The Fall Tattoo and Gallery on Saturday, Feb. 18th to check out an art show entirely dedicated to Bill Murray. I’ve gotten a peek at some of the other submissions (so awesome!) and I’ll have a couple pieces included as well. Here’s a peek…
One of my dioramas is going to be included in a group show by Arts Umbrella staff members at Ainsworth Custom Design! Show opens February 5th and runs until the end of the month. There are some seriously talented folks involved, so pop by Granville Island and check it out (plus you can get a yummy spinach and feta-stuffed bagel in the market… mmmmm).
I’ve been on a little iMovie streak, I’m realizing.
Anywho, here’s a little movie slideshow of my completed sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project 2011. It’s mostly acrylic ink (leftover from what the cat knocked over, as you may recall) but I had some fun at the end using pencil crayons. I mentioned artist Lilly Piri a little while ago and really wanted to try her laborious pencil crayon style, but on a less daunting scale.
The music is Max Richter‘s “Arboretum”.
The exhibition of my bird series, Fight/Flight, has been extended! The show was scheduled to come down on November 30th, but will remain on the lovely walls of Lüt Boutique until the end of December.
Need some gifts? Feeling spendy? How ’bout an original piece of artwork by yours truly?! Not so spendy? Affordable prints, clocks and cards are also available!
Summer is fading and it’s time to fall back in love with the cozy activities of autumn, like ART OPENINGS!
In participation with The Drift on Main, the chic Lüt Boutique is hosting an exhibition of my latest painting series! I’ve posted few of the bird paintings (here, here, here and here), but have been working on several others. Come see the series in person at the opening on Thursday, Sept. 30 from 6-9pm at Lüt Boutique .
The opening will be enhanced with a complimentary beverage and the mad skills of DJ Saucey, recently returned from Taiwan.
As I mentioned in my last post, I will also be at Lüt Boutique during The Drift on Main, Saturday and Sunday, October 2nd and 3rd from 11am – 6pm. Please come by and say hello!
The Drift on Main is an annual arts festival, now in it’s sixth year, which showcases a variety of artists and art events along Main St here in Vancouver. It will take place Saturday, October 2nd and Sunday October 3rd. It’s a great community and family event. Come one, come all! I am thrilled to be participating this year. Check out this link to learn more about the almost 100 artists involved and see examples of their work. Details of my exhibition coming soon!
I came across something called The Sketchbook Project through a blog I follow. It sounded pretty neat: an international call for artists to participate by ordering a sketchbook, filling it with sketches based on one of the suggested themes, then returning it to be part of a touring exhibition and eventually catalogued at the Brooklyn Art Library. So, I ordered my book and I’ve started sketching. My theme is “in flight”. It’s intimidating to look at the wonderful sketchbooks of past years, then look at the blank pages in my book. At least, when I’m feeling cheeky, I’ll be able to say I’ve shown in New York! Hee hee hee…
Four of my clocks are on vacation at Kranky Cafe, on 4th at Main, for the next month or so. Pop by to support a new local cafe/live music venue/mini-gallery, an artist proprietor, and your caffeine addiction! The cafe has a website coming soon and can be followed on facebook (where they keep you up-to-date on fresh baked goods and whatnot).
My show at Forsya officially opened on Friday and will be up until April 30th. Big love to those of you that were there, even just in spirit! I spent Friday worrying that I would be the kid with the birthday party no one attended. It’s very reassuring that I can still persuade (read: guilt) my friends into turning up! The girls at Forsya did a wonderful job of hanging the show and I’m very much looking forward to the launch of their new clothing line on April 9.
