Religious Practice, 2010
So, after a whole day of bed rest, I finally caught up on enough sleep to share some news. I had a fantastic weekend at TOAE 2010! Despite the insane thunderstorm that made setting up on Friday a nightmare, the weekend went better than I ever expected. Met some amazing people, sold a lot of artwork(!), and even won Honourable Mention! CRAZY. The award winners will be showcased in the Best of TOAE 2010 Exhibition at FCP Gallery in January 2011. A list of the award winners.
Photographic Center Northwest sent me an email yesterday informing me that my work will be included in Present Tense: 15th Annual Photographic Competition Exhibition, juried by Denise Wolff from Aperture Foundation. I probably read that email 50 times before I allowed myself to get excited. I volunteered at the Portfolio Reviews during CONTACT, and Denise Wolff was one of the reviewers. I remember nervously saying “hello” to her before walking into a wall. It’s incredibly humbling to know that she has seen my work and selected it to be a part of this show. Present Tense will run from August 6 - September 17. A list of exhibiting artists.
I’m so excited to be showing more and more in the US. If you haven’t checked out the 6th Annual Juried Exhibition at Newspace Center for Photography, the show runs until August 1. I will actually be in Portland in September for the opening reception of The Curve: Center’s Award Recipients Exhibition (also hosted by Newspace). The amazingly generous and wonderfully talented Jon Knox is letting Dylan and I stay with him. Can’t wait for September!

So I’m volunteering at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition this year and after hauling numerous valuables in the rain and drying off whilst stuffing pamphlets, I then spent hours perusing some truly captivating works of art. If you’re in town I highly suggest hitting up Nathan Phillips Square.

Personal favourites include:

Shaun Downey

David Ray Alexander

Ilichna Morasky

Amanda Arcuri

Thomas J. Suh

R. Hryhorczuk

And, my favourite of favourites, Steven Beckly.

I think what I loved the most about Beckly’s work was the quiet intimacy and the subdued colours. I also thought he had some really interesting compositions that immediately draw you in to the image. But he also had a great set up with reasonably priced pieces and also smaller fun things like buttons and mini packages of limited photo sets. Things that poor art-loving girls like me can buy (and kinda want to make).

I have to admit, his work inspired the photo I posted today. He vaguely reminded me of other photographer favourites of mine Madi Ju and Patrick Tsai from their MLDD days. Just a bit though.

Oh, this made me smile and forget that I was soaking in the rain for 4hrs today.
