Plenty of prep work...
Preparations for my upcoming solo show (October 25 - November 7) at Viva Vida Art Gallery are in full swing. The press release is almost ready to be sent out, invitations have been printed and will be on their way soon. There are so many things to take care of before a show and for this one in particular since it will double as a book launch.
I’ve been spending most of my days behind the computer taking care of the graphic design elements, things like invitations, posters but also the layout for the press release and accompanying letters. Little things like price lists and order forms all take time to put together. Luckily I had an early start so everything should be done before the show.
On Thursday the inFOCUS Photography Exhibit will open at Moniker Gallery in Toronto, the opening reception will be from 7-11 pm two pieces of the ‘Journey’ series (a collaboration between Visual artist Denise Buisman Pilger and Photographer Pazit Perez) will be part of the show which will run until September 25.
Another thing coming up are the Cultural Days (Journeés de la Culture), September 27, 28 and 29. Viva Vida Art Gallery will have a special exhibit for the occasion, with a festive vernissage on the Friday (September 27) from 7-9 pm. On Saturday and Sunday the gallery will be filled with fun events and hands on demo’s. It’s a great opportunity to see artists at work and to try your hand at different creative techniques like direct transfer, jewellery making, acrylic painting and sculpture. There will be a host of creative activities throughout Pointe Claire village so mark you calendars for a weekend of art and creativity!
