A move, a tv interview and a solo exhibition.

So many things have happened these past couple of weeks! We were moving to a new home and therefore I was moving to a new studio space, I had to make a very quick trip to Holland for personal reasons and last but certainly not least, my solo show was opening at Viva Vida Art Gallery last week!

Our move went very smoothly, we're almost completely settled in our new home and my studio space is ready for me to start working again!

My new studio space!

My solo exhibition 'Viewfinder' opened at the Viva Vida Art gallery on May 29th. We had a great turnout for the vernissage and a steady stream of people coming in to see the exhibition. Much of this has been because of the amazing coverage we've had from the local media! Not only did we get show announcements and articles in multiple online and printed publications we also got mentioned on two different radio stations and, thanks to CTV's Christine Long, we got mentioned on CTV Montréal twice!

CTV Montréal came to the gallery on Wednesday May 27th, when we were hanging the show, to do a little interview. They talked to both gallery owner and exhibition curator Nedia El Khouri and myself about my current body of work and my previous exhibition, Discoveries: Montreal. 

On Friday May 29th they made a quick show announcement during the 'What's On' segment of the News at Noon which you can watch here: http://montreal.ctvnews.ca/video?playlistId=1.2397864

On Wednesday June 3rd they broadcasted a longer feature that included the interviews during the 'What's On' segment of the 6pm News, you can watch it here: http://montreal.ctvnews.ca/video?playlistId=1.2405396

I am extremely grateful to Christine Long and CTV Montréal for their amazing support! 

If you are curious about my solo exhibition 'Viewfinder', or any of the other artworks featured in the interview, you can visit the Viva Vida Art Gallery in Point Claire village (278-2 Lakeshore Road, Pointe-Claire, Quebec, H9S 4K9, Telephone: (514) 694-1110). The exhibition will be up until June 11. You can also find a little video and some photographs of the exhibition on my website.
