What are you up to this Saturday? You should get out and wander East Van neighbourhoods visiting me and other artists in their studios for First Saturday Open Studios!

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.

First Saturday Open Studios
Date: Saturday February 7th, 2015
Time: 12pm to 5:00pm

On a visit to the Vancouver Art Gallery last week with my friend Mary Anne Tateishi, I was thrilled to see this installation by Ai Wei Wei. It is made up of hundreds of antique wooden stools, stacked from floor to ceiling in a chaos of straight legs and circular seats.

It was impressive to see in person and get the chance to walk through. This installation is the best thing to see at the VAG by far. It’s part of an exhibition on contemporary Chinese art that continues until April 6th, 2015.

On Friday I dropped into Gam Gallery to check out their latest show, Paper Presents. I have two layered paper pieces in the show amongst all the other terrific work by Vancouver artists such as Ola Volo, Sean Karemaker, Sarah Clement and many more.

The official opening for the show is this Friday November 28th, 7pm until late. It’s a good place to pick up handmade local art for Christmas gifts.
