Now that the dust has settled from the Opening of Boundary|time|Surface, I am happy to say that Dr. John Waldron and I will be presenting a talk on the project, and the ideas behind our collaboration!
There’s so much going on in YEG in the summer months, it’s tough to keep up, let alone take part in as much as one would like. It’s something I love about this place – we take our investment in the brief summer seriously! Full-on, all-the-stops-out, all the things all the time!
So … a couple that I’ve got going on:
I’ll have a video work in the Member’s Show at Harcourt House – NEW TERRITORIES – opening on Thursday 18 June:
I’ll be throwing my studio doors open for a while in the evening. So come by and say hello if you have a chance! You’ll find me at the Harcourt House Gallery, or in my studio
… OR …
Across the hall at Visual Arts Alberta-CARFAC!
I also have the pleasure of being part of the presentation of the Eldon & Anne Foote Edmonton Visual Arts Prize for 2015, taking place at Visual Arts Alberta-CARFAC on June 18th at 7:30. So, while you’re in the Harcourt House building, pop in to Visual Arts Alberta-CARFAC’s office and gallery, and raise a glass to the fine artists who made the short list for the Foote Prize, and see the work in the galleries too.
Elsewhere has been and gone … took down the exhibition this past Monday.
How the time flies past … it seems yesterday (and a long time ago) all at once, that I was preparing and packing the work for this show.
It was a great space to work in, and we had fabulous support from curator Brenda Barry Byrne, and the staff at Gallery @ 501. I think I have been spoiled for other spaces!
So, one last goodbye … a video “tour” of the work Brenda Danbrook and I exhibited in Elsewhere. Hope you enjoy.
It seems I’ve become a desk jockey this last while!
I’ve been busy with a number of things that have kept me from the studio, but most of them have concerned getting things written (good thing I got me some “book-larnin’ ” in that department a while ago … never thought the English degree would be so useful!)
To what end have I been chained to my old desk, you ask?
… and now, back to the planning!
It has been a harrowing time for people in the southern part of the province in which I live.
Many of us have been glued to newsfeeds, facebook, and other media getting the latest information as the events unfolded and the scope of the flooding in Calgary and elsewhere in Alberta became clear.
Now the cleanup has begun – and the impact of all that water is becoming clear, and will be felt for a long time to come.
Thankfully, there has been some incredible work done to coordinate assistance and the long hard job of getting things back to where they were … and one of those initiatives is being facilitated through Calgary Arts Development and Visual Arts Alberta-CARFAC:
VAA-CARFAC has requested that Alberta artists impacted by the recent flooding events to please contact them directly and pass on information. This process is part of an assessment of the impact of the flood on artists in the province, with an eye to coordinating support and assistance. Please see the information HERE>
VAA-CARFAC will be working with Calgary Arts Development, Alberta Foundation for the Arts, Alberta Partners for Arts + Culture (APAC) and CARFAC National to gather the info, and Calgary Arts Development is coordinating a flood impact plan.
Wishing all the very best to everyone affected by the flooding!!
