Spring 2014 Newsletter


It's been a busy couple of months for me, and there may very well be a couple more!  Here is some of what I've been up to, and what is coming up.

Current Exhibition:

IMR at the Harris-Warke Gallery

What is likely the last exhibition of the Institute of Morphoid Research is currently up in the Harris-Warke Gallery in Red Deer, Alberta.  Located in downtown Red Deer, at 4924 Ross Street, the gallery is a beautiful little space on the top floor of the Sunworks Home and Garden store.  If you are in the area, join us for the opening reception on Friday, March 7th, from 6-8PM.  Exhibition runs February 23rd to March 22, 2014.

Upcoming Project:

"And Now For Something Completely Different...!"
Self-Directed Residency
at the Gushul Studio

I am spending the whole month of March at the Gushul Studio in Blairmore, Alberta (in the Crowsnest Pass).  You might remember that I've been there before, as part of a collaborative residency with Latifa Pelletier-Ahmed. As I need to focus on developing some new work, my self-imposed theme for the residency is "And now for something completely different...!" (Like Monty Python, it very well might be completely off in left field and hilarious, but there will be no limits!) I will probably be blogging at least a little bit about the experience, but as I am choosing to focus more inwardly, it may be few and far between.

If you happen to be in the neighborhood during March, stop in to see what's happening, or just to visit. It's the big brown building with the "Photo Studio" sign on the top - you can't miss it!

In Case You Missed it:

Puppet Intensive Residency at the Banff Centre

I attended the Banff Centre's Puppet Intensive Residency in the first few weeks of January.  It was absolutely spectacular.  There were 25 of us, from all kinds of different places and backgrounds. In two weeks, I learned an incredible amount, explored chi energy and being interesting without being interesting, built six raven puppets and put together a short puppet show.  There was so much friendship, laughter, and great adventures going on!  I may forget the details, but I will never forget the experience.  Thanks for a more than memorable couple of weeks, puppet campers!  (Photo by Will Zarwell.)

Finally, I leave you with an image from our show, "Epilogue." (Photo by Meghan Krauss / The Banff Centre).
