Brian Jungen, The Moon & Printmaking Show

I had an enjoyable time at the Printmaking Show Reception a few weeks ago. And a week later, I learned that, happily, my print, Smarten Up, had sold. Since then, I've been working on two more prints that I'll post when they're further developed. In the meantime, here's some photos of two shows I went to… Continue reading Brian Jungen, The Moon & Printmaking Show

Kusama Exhibition

I'm a member of the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto. As a  member, I had the chance to see a preview of the Yayoi Kusama exhibit on Thursday. Getting a ticket for the show was a very long process.

The sculptures felt both somber and playful to me and… Continue reading Design Exchange–This Is Not a Toy

Fictions & Legends at the Textile Museum–2

On Wednesday night, I returned to the Textile Museum to hear Jérôme Havre speak about his art work that's part of the Fictions and Legends exhibition. I've written about loving this show, so it was great to hear Jérôme tell us what the works mean to him. He finds it extremely important to speak about the thoughts… Continue reading Fictions & Legends at the Textile Museum–2

Fictions & Legends at the Textile Museum

There's a wonderful exhibit on right now at the Textile Museum of Canada in Toronto that I highly recommend.  I've been to see it twice and will be returning again. It's called "Fictions and Legends" and is the work of artists Heather Goodchild and Jérôme Havre. The beauty of this show is not only in… Continue reading Fictions & Legends at the Textile Museum
