performance in Toronto

It's a lovely week-end for a city stroll. If you're in TORONTO and around Bloor Street West, I invite you to come by and check out my window installation and performances at Super Wonder Gallery (876 Bloor st W and Ossington).  

Today I will be doing a painting performance sometime in the late afternoon (after 3:30pm) and again tonight for the opening at 8pm and 11pm.  Also on Sunday some time in the afternoon.  If you're out and about - do say hello - would be lovely to see you!  Also, if you're on a schedule, please call the gallery to make sure it's open.

I am also showing some paintings in the exhibition (Figurative Exhibition), opening tonight, Saturday April 30th at 8pm, however, there is a cover of 10$, free during the day (hrs 1-8pm, or call the gallery).

NOVEMBER: Rhinocéros - a play directed by Pierre Gregory

Hello my French-speaking friends, ... and everyone interested in theatre and art! 

This month - I'm pleased to announce that I have collaborated with a very talented play-writer/director, Pierre Gregory, on a French play that he directed titled :  Rhinocéros, written by Eugene Inoesco. The play will be held at l’auditorium de Gabrielle-Roy on 14 Pembroke St. (corner of Dundas/Sherbourne).
This is a *special* project for me because I got to collaborate with Oliver da Silva in creating the costumes for the cast.   Not only is Oliver da Silva a very talented sculptor, he also happens to be my partner and best friend.  

A new BLOG with images of the sculptural costumes coming soon!
