Talking Art with The Eastside Culture Crawl

Talking Art is a series of artist talks and conversations to be held in advance of this year’s Eastside Culture Crawl in celebration of its 20th Anniversary. There are four events taking place between October 23th to November 5th, and each will pair two artists exploring a common theme. I’ll be presenting along with Heather Braun-Dahl on Sunday October 30th at 2pm. The full schedule in below.


Sunday, October 23 – 2pm

Material: Britta Fluevog and James Kemp
Britta Fluevog and James Kemp both balance experimental sculpture and installation works with the production of functional wares, each arising through the process of their material practices.

Saturday, October 29 – 2pm
Narrative: Haisla Collins and Richard Tetrault
Haisla Collins and Richard Tetrault are both engaged in individual and community-based works, each informed by strong narratives and realized in brilliant colour.

Sunday, October 30 – 2pm
Abstraction: Rachael Ashe and Heather Braun-Dahl
Rachael Ashe and Heather Braun-Dahl work in different media, but are brought together through form and line, with abstraction as a common ground and understanding.

Saturday, November 5 – 2pm
Place: Marcus Bowcott and Connie Sabo
Marcus Bowcott and Connie Sabo have both addressed place through environmental and social concerns, with intimacy and individuality that nonetheless speaks to the collective.

Talking Art is FREE and will be held at The Arts Factory (281 Industrial Ave). The series is curated by Francesca Szuszkiewicz.
