We're having our annual thematic art show and open studio weekend!

Gauche Vernissage: Thursday May 28th from 7pm- midnight
450 Beaumont Ave. Park Extension, Montreal

Be a part of the awkwardness of a three way phone call in Adam Brown's interactive broken telephone installation Get embarrassed for the life like and oh-so-gauche portrait of Stephen Harper as an artist by Kate Puxley. Win one of the many miniature left/gauche hand trophies made out of glass by Vanessa Yanow. Be boggled by how Stephen H Kawai's "Gauche interactions with a Molecule" keeps this crazy chemist's mobile in tact. Dance inappropriately to gauche themed music by CKUT's Venus Collective's very own deejay Nomnryn.

If you can't make it to the Gauche opening, or if you can't get enough of the Long Haul action, come
to our open studio weekend! All 18 studios will be open for the voyeur in you. Come and meet the 28 artists that make up the Long Hall. Enjoy the range of work spaces - from utterly chaotic to super sparse, all of them inspiring. Diverse creation will be on display and for sale in each artist's studio. Felted rugs, drawing, painting, photo, glass, jewelry, and much more.
Open studio weekend:
Saturday and Sunday, May 30th and 31st, 2009
from noon - six
(gauche show will be open for viewing)

Collaborative project

I wanted to share the latest project I have been working on. It is the first one of the year! I was approached by Ana Masut, a student in industrial design, to create a lumberjack style plaid for her chair cover. The frame is made of wood, the leather support is a traditional babiche knotting method, the cushion covers are hand felted and are stuffed with Canadian feathers. It is a prototype for a chair that will be selling at kastella, , here in Montreal. If you want to check it out, it will be on display at the University of Montreal until May 2nd from 12h-19h.
