Friends and studiomates, Lex and Cal, have started up a gallery/collective space in the Queen East neighbourhood. Last night was their inaugural exhibition, Spring Fling. The work is up until next Wednesday if anyone who is reading this happens to be in the area. Viewers will be treated to a fun and eclectic mix of energetic art by local emerging artists. It's also looking mighty slick in the space since renovations were completed.
Next Thursday, May 30 is the opening of their 2nd group show, Fatal Abstractions. (7pm-11pm) I'll be showing a few pieces for that one along with a number of other talented artists working in various modes of abstraction. Should be a fun night!

Tonight I had the honour of attending the 100 Prints show tonight at the Palais Royale (http://www.openstudio.on.ca/100prints.html) in place of my esteemed colleague, Eric Euler (www.ericeuler.com). He's down south getting his MFA on at Louisiana State University in Red Stick* and could not be in attendance. Open Studio put together a great event with a wonderful diversity of art on display. Even got to see a Kenojuak print! Congratulations to the shortlisted artists and prize winners of the event, including a 3rd place finish for Eric! Here's to one of the hardest working, most positive guys I've had the pleasure of working with. Way to "slay forth", Eric! http://ericeuler.com/artwork/2836710_Crowns.html

A little last minute hanging of some art never hurt anyone. I contacted Brenda, in charge of art bookings at C'est What? Brew/Vin Pub Restaurant, earlier last week about hanging some art up in their fine establishment once again. As it turns out, she had a cancellation from one of the artists who was supposed to be hanging work in there this month. I was more than happy to throw a few pieces up in there to fill the space. http://www.cestwhat.ca/ - C'est What?; good food, good brews, great atmosphere...and art too! They've even got a couple pool tables. What more could one ask for? 67 Front Street, at Church. Check it out!
