Eastside Culture Crawl 2023

I am pleased to be participating in the 2023 Eastside Culture Crawl!

This year I will be showing two main themes; the first a new series of acrylic and graphite works inspired by travels to Mexico. These works are intended to express, by simplified isolation of the figures and their integration with market-sourced elements, the grace of movement as frozen in gestures of working. Larger canvas works expand on this theme. I will also have recent pieces that are from the immediate industrial environment of Vancouver and the inner harbours. 

As one of the founders of the Crawl event, it gives me great satisfaction to see how it has not only survived, but thrived over many years. Both the 'classic' open studio event, (mid-November see attached) as well as the numerous interconnected events, such as the four curated Preview Exhibitions, the youth-engaged Studio 101 and, in the summer, the CREATE festival, have contributed hugely to the vitality of our Eastside Arts community. It has provided a robust and always challenging art experience by bringing artists and public into the essential dialogue about the nature of creativity. 

Further developed this year is the overarching Eastside Arts District. More to follow on this. 

Two of my recent works, reflecting the waterfalls of Mitaki Dera in Hiroshima, Japan are included in the Pendulum Exhibition, 884 West Georgia St. See attached flyer. Please visit or better, come to the opening event November 2nd, from 6-8 pm! 

 I hope to see you at my studio, 884 East Georgia this November!
