I think I already mentioned how thrilled I am to do the Culture Crawl this year, and not exhibit. I feel like I have so much more free time than usual this fall. I am SUPER EXCITED to visit friends in their studios, and discover new artists I haven’t met before.
These are some of the artists I am going to visit when the Crawl kicks off on Thursday evening, and I think you should too.
M.A. Tateishi in Studio 280, Mergatroid Building.
Simone Richmond in Onion Studio.
Westerly Handmade Shoes in 1000 Parker Street Studios
Propellor Design at 1120 East Georgia Street.
Christina Norberg in the Mergatroid Building.
Eastside Culture Crawl begins Thursday November 19th and ends Sunday November 22nd. Visit the website to plan your route.

I’m excited about our Hot Talks event tomorrow evening at Hot Art Wet City. After weeks of preparation the date is finally here. I may be as nervous as some of our speakers, but we’re all going to be okay.
This is a collage I created to promote the event on Instagram, using images from all of the speakers. See you tomorrow evening if you happen to have a ticket.

I saw a wonderful show at the York Theatre yesterday evening, A Simple Space by Gravity & Other Myths. They are a circus troupe from Australia, and they performed amazing feats of human strength and agility on the tiny stage in East Van. It was the highlight of my week.

Their promo video is a terrific look at the crazy things they did last night. Tickets are still available to see Gravity & Other Myths, and they’re in residence at the York Theatre until October 24th.
