Headlight 15


The 15th edition of Headlight Anthology has arrived!

Concordia University’s literary anthology publishing both students and alumni, founded by Joshua Knelman, offers up a sophisticated collection on the theme of Lost, Found, and Stolen in it’s 15th anniversary issue.

Editors-in-Chief: T Noah J Nazim, Kathryn Pobjoy, and Katherine Sehl did a fanstastic job bringing everything together and designer James Bouthilier has impressed the hell out of me with this classy tome.

I’m not just saying that because I’m in it either!

It is a beautifully designed book. But you don’t have to take my word for it! Go pick up your own copy and see for yourself! Just 7 bucks!

Headlight Anthology can be found at these particular locations:

The Word Bookstore
The Concordia Co-op Bookstore

En Avril!

Hey all!

Did you know that April is Fibre Arts month? Well, it is! In Montreal, April is dedicated to a month-long celebration and promotion of Fibre Art in a festival called En Avril.

How will you participate? The En Avril website has put together a comprehensive program of galleries, artist-run centers and artists who are hosting events or are presenting work in this festival. Fill up your calendar with fiberlicious outings!

How am I participating? Well, Au Deuxieme, the studio that I am a member of, is offering an exciting weekend of workshops during our open house celebration next weekend! On Saturday April 14th and Sunday April 15th, Au Deuxieme will be open to the public from 12-7. Come on out and check out the mini gallery of art made by the members and if you are more of a hands on type, stick around for our workshops! On Sunday we will be offering a print workshop on the basics of block-printing, paper stencils and silk-screen and on Sunday we will offering a dye workshop showing you Shibori techniques with natural dyes!

For more information check out the facebook event!

Happy Easter weekend!

Post Nuit Blanche recap

Well, what a night! Happy to have made it through to the other side!

Thanks everyone who came out to Studio427 on Saturday night and partook in our sleepless night and grill cheese sandwiches! It was so nice to see you all!

It got quite busy in there!

Sadly, I wasn’t feeling well and so I ended up playing things really easy that night and stuck to the Belgo instead of running all over town to see cool things. The Belgo is far from boring though and was jam packed with interesting things. Things like this nerdy number by Winthrop Jones titled Brad Pitt Skin:

And this piece by Tyson Parks title Blog Roll. As you may know, I am always a huge fan of toilet paper inspired art and puns and so this piece was quick to win my heart.

More information about that show over at Ratsdeville if you are interested.

However, the highlight of my night was definitely the nawhale pulling the chariot! Sadly I didn’t catch who made it. Do you know? I have just been informed that this masterful papier-mâché creature exists thanks to the MAW Collective, a group made up of the talented Gabriel Baribeau, Jackson Darby, Max Evans, John Gunner, Craig Spence and Simon Zaborskia. Thanks for the info, John!
More informtaion on this group and the show I saw can be found here! on the Eastern Bloc blog.

Anyway, the trouble with Nuit Blanche is that no matter how well you plan things or how rested you are, you just can’t do everything. Hopefully, next year I will not be sick and will be able to up my art intake substantially.

See you next year!
