Encyclopedia of Everything

encylopedia of everything

 

I love challenges and so when Hundred Dollar Gallery asked if I wanted to do a show with local author and dear friend Gary Barwin, I was very interested.  I was wanting to do something bookish and so, I decided to create collages out of a set of encyclopedias from 1952.  I am allowed to add up to 5 extra pieces of ephemera to each collage but each piece will have paper only from one volume from the set.  It’s been interesting to combine such abstract images together to create a cohesive piece. I have a handful more to finish and I am very excited to share so I hope that you will join us at Encyclopedia of Everything.

I had been planning to take a hiatus from shows so that i could focus on making during the months of July and August.  But when i saw this show, I was just so excited that i knew that i wanted to be a part of it, especially considering that it’s two minutes away from my house.  
It’s so great to see people promoting what i think is one of the loveliest neighbourhoods of the city, and i really can’t wait to see what it’s like.  Fingers crossed for good weather!

Call for Submissions: Tarot Art Show

I see Tarot as something that is created by the wide range of people who engage it. It is not a static thing that has always been but grows and changes as the world grows and changes. It is through community, history and readings that we create tarot. Tarot also reaches back from the spirit side of creation and creates itself. It is in this intermediate space between our creation and spirits unfolding that art can help birth the future of tarot. This show is a place for artists who are exploring the world of tarot, or tarot in the world, to share their creations and talk with others who are participating in tarot’s evolution.
Deadline for submissions is September 30. Please send your submissions to art_show@thehermitslamp.com. This is a juried show. All artists will be notified of the jury’s decisions. Please pass this invitation on to anyone you think would be interested.
Here is the FaceBook link for the event (including the call to artists): http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=147920405286262
Show opening will be October 27th 7-9pm. Show will run for the month of November. Please put it in your calendar.
The Hermit’s Lamp is a spiritual wellness centre in Toronto. It is the creation of Andrew McGregor tarot reader, coach and artist. Some of its virtual manifestations can be found here:
