Thanks for stopping by.
All my stuff is now over at marisagallemit.com
See you over there!
it's all i'm thinking about right now.
art is installed.
(the ottawa sun/ now open with denis armstrong)
it's going to be SUNNY for the festival - first time in three years!
i am so grateful for to the Chinatown Remixed Board of Directors - they've been all over it, handling, organizing, managing, liaising, spreading the word - they are champs!
i am also thrilled to pieces to be paired with Karen and Leigh of High Jinx. these are smart, savvy, powerful women. this wonderful second-hand furniture/ curiosity shop is their vehicle for funding their own community and homelessness initiative - helping people in the community find homes and furnish their homes. in their own words, "the way it was done in Little House on the Prairie" - neighbours helping neighbours in need. i am inspired and in awe of their philosophy and business model. (i've also purchased a side table and a set of mid-century steak knives in the past 2 days, this place is a treasure trove!)
i've got tomorrow off & i'm ready to party.
look out Chinatown!
it's may again and that means:
mother's day (gifts and flowers please)
consider yourselves cordially invited.
i will be posted at High Jinx - a wonderful second-hand furniture shop - my works will hang in the picture window facing Somerset Street. the lovely and talented Natalie Fournier will be just out front with her special brand of thought-provoking and visually arresting performance art.
i'm working with white zip-ties this time around - and attempting to capture the essence of deep sea creatures, phosphorescence, fluidity. this material means murder for my fingertips - endless burns and cuts, like paper cuts but worse - but i seem to love the challenge of pieces that involve repetitive, labour-intensive construction.
Saturday, May 12th 130-5pm
Somerset Street West
over 40 artists of all disciplines
40 local venues
music, arts, community, vittles, bubble tea and sunshine (fingers crossed)
see y'all there!
