Last Chance to see 'Studies in Interlacement...' @ Gerhard!

Just a quick note! This is your last chance to check out my installation Studies in Interlacement, xylem & phloem, at Gerhard Supply in the Junction. If you are in the area over the weekend, you can find it @ 2949 Dundas St. West. All of the works in the shop are available for sale, if you are still looking for something special to give a certain someone. I will be un-installing sometime on monday, so feel free to pop by, or drop me a line through my website.

Junction Design Crawl 2013

Hi everybody!

Now that I am finally finished my first semester at school and taking a break for the holidays, I thought I would take the time to do some much needed catching up on my blog and post some things that have been on the back burner since the summer!!! Once I return to school in the new year, I'm hoping to take the time to keep up with my blog posting regularly - even if it's just an inspirational photo here and there....!
This time of year, instead of thinking about the holidays I usually have my head in the clouds thinking about Design Week, at the end of January. I am going to be participating in two exhibitions as a part of the Toronto Design Offsite Festival, so be on the look out for that AND my coverage of as many exhibitions as I can make it out to for design week! In the meantime, here are some images from the Junction Design Crawl this past August, enjoy!

Junction Design Crawl 2013!

I am really excited to be starting my summer vacation today, but before I head off on a bus for Montreal to check out some art and wander around the city, I thought I would let you know about the next show I have coming up! 
I am excited to announce that I will once again be participating in
the Junction Design Crawl, with an installation in the store front of Gerhard, 2949 Dundas St. West. I am looking forward to showing alongside the talented Alanna Cavanagh and would like to thank both Telephone Booth Gallery and Gerhard for making this project possible! 
If you would like to see some images I took from last year's design crawl, feel free to check it out here. Looking forward to seeing everybody there!

playing HOUSE making HOME

Playing HOUSE making HOME
Aurora Cultural Centre - Blue Gallery
Curated by Stephanie Nicolo

June 26th - August 24th, 2013
Opening reception: Saturday, July 13th 1-4pm

playing HOUSE making HOME brings together three Toronto-based artists, D'Andrea Bowie, Lizz Aston and Wing Yee Tong. Together their work presents a refreshing perspective and narrative about domestic traditions within contemporary art practice. The works showcased in the exhibition were physically challenging to produce and will awe audiences in their detail. 
The show is a reflective space that whispers notions of the home and questions the definition of craft and the ideal home-maker. Through the use of embroidery, quilt-making, sculpture and installation, playing HOUSE making HOME is intended to intrigue audiences, bridge associations and ask the question what makes home a HOME?
