A Crafty Hallowe’en

Sunday, November 2nd, 2008

Oh it was a busy couple of nights indeed. Pumpkins AND a skull cake! This is our first fondant experiment, and it went very smoothly, I must say. And it was eerily delicious.

Best trick-or-treat costumes that came to the door were two girls dressed as nerds wearing sweatervests and taped up glasses! I wish I had thought of that years ago.

We also managed to find the mysterious Crystal Head Vodka… feel free to YouTube that one if you dare.

My contributions to the Erotic show on now at the Leyton gallery in St. John’s. It’s up until November 29th.

Hot Karate Lesson and Over the Fence, both are 20″x24″, acrylic and permanent marker on canvas.

You can decide which is which.

Some progress has been made

Still working away on my show for January, and I thought I’d throw up a few more images for your viewing pleasure. Steady as she goes.

The beginning of one of the sculptures for the installation.

It feels like I have a lot done when they’re all jammed in a corner like this.

One more for now.

Thank you thank you to my ol’ school chum, Dave Gale, for drawing my comic duo and really making my day!

The Box Factory

He says he’s retiring the cast of Offal Funnies (be sure to read ’em all); I can’t wait to see what’s coming next. Dude is hilarious.

And next – here’s a little bird I drew for a friend’s project… I’m not exactly sure what it’s about. Something good, I hope!

And also a Merry Christmas (or whatever you like)

The b’ys enjoyed their trip around the corner and down to the gallery last night, and even posed for a photo with a drunk man smoking a cigarette. The streets are tough, indeed.

That said, here’s the press release. So please drop into the gallery today or over the next month to visit if you’re around!

Special thanks to the NLAC for their generous support.

Thank you thank you Scott.

Characters come to life in new exhibitions at Eastern Edge Gallery

Eastern Edge Gallery is pleased to present three exciting new exhibitions to kick off 2009 featuring artists Jennifer Barrett (NL), Cindy Baker (SK) and Anita Singh (NL).

Based on a comic strip of the same name in Werebears and Only Children Jennifer Barrett creates a multi-media installation with painting, sculpture and video projection. Her work revolves around the extrapolation of blind contour drawings and the modification of autobiographical comics. A big fan of non-traditional comics, Barrett mixes personal story and experience through her characters. In Wearbears and Only Children these characters visit themselves standing silently offering their own critique to the work presented.

In Personal Appearance Cindy Baker is equiped with a professional mascot costume of herself. In other words, Cindy Baker will make personal appearances as Cindy Baker. This is a project about performing oneself; the performance of expectations based on one’s persona, in particular the gendered form of the artist herself. Personal Appearance is confrontational by nature yet cuddly and approachable through experience.  Be sure to be on the lookout in and around the St. John’s area!

Finally in The Rogue Gallery local artist Anita Singh presents DOCUMENTED.

These exhibitions are on view from January 10th until February 21st. Please join us at the opening on January 10th at 3 to 5 pm and for the artists talk on January 15th from 7 to 9pm.
