Here at the longhaul/corrid'art, we have an annual group show. The theme is the alphabet and this year was the letter H.  We are a mix of artists, illustrators, craftspeople and writers and choosing one word is a challenge. We all gathered together, ate some good food, discussed and finally decided on our word.  It was a tough call between Hot dog and Hiatus but, Hiatus had more options in the end.   It is such a fun experience when we all come out of our studios and create a show representative of all of us. That is the best part of the longhaul. Here are some photos of what we all put together.  You can check out the contributor column on this page to see who we are: past and present. Thanks to all who participated and, to all who came out to enjoy our show! Thanks to John for all the photos too!

A Performance Celebrating Water | June 21 2010

How do we relate to water after the gulf oil crisis? What information can our senses bring to our consciousness of water at this present moment in time?

I'm pleased to invite you to an event I'll be performing at this coming Monday June 21st, 2010. The Thinking with Water Project is hosting an Artists' panel “Thinking with Water: Beyond Text” from 4:45pm - 6:30pm. My freshwater mermaid will be making a short appearance, offering water samples from a collection of rivers and lakes of various regions of Quebec. Some water samples are out of stock and contaminated, while others taste like blueberry roots and rocks. Interaction guaranteed.

"Moving beyond text and materializing alternate approaches to thinking with water, artists and researchers Sarah Renshaw, Rae Staseson and Gisèle Trudel (Ælab) will present and discuss their work with water. Thoughtful, thought-provoking and materially rich, their artworks, Stream of Consciousness (2010), Water Drawing (2010) and the “conference performance” of light, sweet, cold, dark, crude (LSCDC) (2006-), offer a generative counterpoint to the written components of the Thinking With Water collection. During the opening reception, Emily Rose Michaud will offer a rare tasting of nearby waters."
