Wild & Free Art Gala

Friday is the night! I spent the day selecting eight double exposures to show, and by that I mean, I’ve already fussed over which eight a number of times. Finally I decided to pick them based on the general mood they created together… so I feel okay about the selection, which isn’t normal for me. Typically nothing feels right or complete, which doesn’t exactly create confidence.

Sneak peek…. only this one didn’t make the cut, even though it’s one of my favourites.


The Art Show opens at 7pm at the Spice Factory, located at 121 Hughson Street North. There is parking all around, and after 6pm it’s only $1.50 I think… you might be able to find free parking within walking distance, but I don’t have inside information on that. There is no cover charge, but we are collecting non-perishable food goods, if you’ve got them.

As you know, there is live music; James Favron, Chad Brown and Josh Edwards. I am most familiar with James’ work, and he’s amazing, so there’s that. I am exhibiting with other women, Sarah Wills who is exhibiting band photography, but also does amazing fashion photography, Melanie Crumb who is this fresh, talented painter, who uses her art as a way of coping with depression, yay Mel! and Krista Roberts who is exhibiting pottery, and it’s beautiful (which her video in the below link, even the making of the beautiful pottery is beautiful). Here’s a link to event page, but also check out the links below!
