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!

Recap and Preview

Been keeping busy since that last post in February. Very busy.

Here are some of the things that I have been up to…..
Well, March madness struck and I collaborated with some musicians on their Sensory Overload show.
Show poster
For this show me and some friends produced 7 sculptures of Rubiks cubes wrapped around sheep. The sheep ranged from 7 inches to 7 feet and fun was had by all involved in this project.
Hanging sheep

Sweet Mother Logic is very interesting band with a solid and professional sound. Every show they put on is much more than a concert, it is a full on theatrical maneuver! This event was incredible and diverse and jam packed with talented artists coming together for fun and drinks. I am privileged to have been a part if it.

April is Fibre Arts month!
I have been making sure to do my part to contribute. Initiatives, collaborations, publications and charitable donations are some of the ways that I am commemorating Fibre Arts Month!
Sent away two fine art postcards as an experiment to see how they would survive the mail and they made it to their destination! Sadly, I forgot to photograph them before they made the journey.
If you are in the NY area you should pop by The Brooklyn Art Library and see if you can spot me.
It is a great place to be.

Then it was the 20 x 20 show at CTCM.

This month I donated a few things to be sold to benefit the Centre Textiles Contemporain de Montreal at their 20th Anniversary party and fundraiser, 20 x 20. It was a huge success and tons of fun. $8 000 have been raised so far! The exhibition will be up until April 30th.

Coming soon:
Mail Me Something Book (June)
The postcards sent out to the Mail Me Something postcard show at the Brooklyn Art Library in New York are not only on display they are also in a book!

High Chroma Picnic (dates TBA)
The sheep and I will be going for a walk in the park. Fun and photos, live music and food. Something you have to see to believe.

Too Cool For Art School! Art and Science Fair (May 8th)
Taking Family Portrait on the road! On May 8th I will be in Toronto presenting my work in cyanotype at the Harbourfront Center.
For more information on this event click HERE.

Erronious Zones (dates TBA)
This exhibit will be an interdisciplinary presentation of work that addresses the many ways in which the body is ‘mistaken’. When and where this happens you will find Simulacra, my hand/gloves.

….. and be sure that I have at least a 1/2 dozen other plates in the air. The updates to come promise action, adventure, drama, romance and loads of art.
