It’s spring cleaning time in the studios of many East Van artists, and we’re getting together on May 9th to swap or giveaway unwanted supplies.

It’ll be exactly like a garage sale but everything is free.

Drop by AMP studio located at 800 Keefer Street in Strathcona, and help us find new homes for unwanted (but still viable) art supplies. At this time I have no idea what type of supplies will be available, so please drop by in person. You’ll get to meet local artists too!

Art Supplies Giveaway
Address: 800 Keefer Street
Date: Saturday May 9th, 2015
Time: 12pm to 2pm

San Francisco artist, Peter Combe, has a show at Back Gallery Project for the next few weeks. I attended the opening last Thursday and was completely mesmerized by the work.

He creates a mix of portraits and abstract work from hundreds of small circles punched from colourful paint chips, which are placed at an angle to the surface of the piece. The pieces look completely different depending on the angle you view it from, and the colours and tones shift. They are fascinating to look at, and each viewer moves around in front of the work.

The portraits are subtle and the full effect doesn’t come across in photos as it does in person.

The show continues until May 9th at Back Gallery Project, so don’t miss it.

It’s been a couple years since I last participated in First Saturday, an open studio day that happens every month with a varying list of excellent artists. This time I will be a guest in the studio of Reilly Lievers, a fabulous photographer, musician, and film maker. You can find us working away at 25 Gore Avenue, between noon to 5pm.

Come say hello, and see Reilly and me in action as we work on our stuff before your very eyes.
