Ever since my blog has been added to my website the pressure to create perfect posts has been intense. I know that i now need to edit more, rant less and get to the point. Yet, as someone who used to feel that my blog was truly a space for creative freedom I have decided that i will return to my original goals of sharing ideas about art, letting the world know about awesome artists and challenging people to be their own unique creative selves.
I won’t censor my words or my thoughts for fear that someone might not like me. I mean, i have never done it before, so why do it now, right?
Without further ado, I would like to share some great artists with you. If you don’t know, I am now the Gallery Coordinator of James North Studio in Hamilton. It’s a dynamic space full of talented artists. The current show Februum features the work of artist Wendy Bachiu and Jo Johnson. This exhibit is a great one as it combines two artists with very different styles. I was excited about this show before i even saw it but i had no idea that the combination of Johnson’s beautiful, slightly creepy vintage dolls partnered with Bachiu’s soothing mixed media pieces would be so complimentary. It’s a beautiful show and you have one more week to check it out!

I look forward to sharing more with you, and to being back to the blogosphere!
