If anyone's close enough to Toronto to come visit, I'm showing a piece starting friday at the WhipperSnapper Gallery, at Dundas and Augusta. It's a film installation, that'll be part of my thesis work which will be done next month.

Pretty exciting for me! I'll post details for our thesis show when I know them, because it is going to be totally crazy awesome.


Also I know lots of you are artists and some might also have shows coming up? You can post those here too!

Same, but I'll try to get out for it as well!

Hey y'all! My huge class thesis show is coming up super soon! The opening reception is tomorrow night, and then it runs from Saturday to May 8th, 11AM to 6PM, at 60 McCaul Street, just south of OCAD, in Toronto.

The show is called Something More Concrete, and it has 36 sculpture and installation artists showing their thesis projects. The space is an old single-storey office building that we've cleaned up into a great gallery. It's going to be a really good show, guys. If any of you are going to be in range of dropping in to Toronto in the next couple weeks, you should come by!

Digging up this old post instead of starting a new one.

I've got a piece I did a couple years ago playing at The Rooms in St John's on Wednesday night! I'm super excited because that's the provincial art gallery. It's also going to be installed in Toronto for like 3 weeks, with a big opening party on April 10th.

More exciting than that, the piece stars our very own Tommy D!!

Thanks!
Also it is like 10-15 degrees warmer in St John's than Toronto right now!

I have a piece I'm real proud of in a show up now at YTB Gallery in Toronto.

It's a 21 minute hovering drone shot of a historically challenging neighbourhood in the midst of a difficult transition!

Okay biggest one yet

I have a piece in this show: Every. Now. Then: Reframing Nationhood at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

It's a friggin' big deal show, a super political show in resistance to all of the Canada 150 celebrations going on this year. It opens on Wednesday, and then runs until DECEMBER. The show takes up one whole storey of the museum. I am pretty lucky and honoured to be included.

If anyone's near Toronto please come and check it out
