This has been such a busy winter for me in terms of curatorial, volunteer and writing contracts. To see one of the projects that has kept me occupied, have a look at my latest curatorial project, Dirt, Detritus and Vermin. The exhibition is on view until 8 August 2011 and presents the work of Cal Lane, Sarah Saunders and Janice Wright Cheney.
This spring was also busy with conferences. I attended the Atlantic Provinces Art Galleries Association (APAGA) conference in Sackville, NB, followed immediately by the Visual Arts Nova Scotia (VANS) AGM in Lake Charlotte, NS. The meeting and social was held atMemory Lane Heritage Village, which was so much fun. Wonderful food, great folks and a very interesting hands-on museum. Of course, there were many objects that I’d be interested in drawing, especially given the period focus of the museum (it coincides with my grandparent’s farming years, and many of the objects were familiar from the old barns and their stories). I’d love to work out a residency with them! The following week I sat on a panel at the CARFAC AGM in Halifax, NS.
Now that this project is up and everything else has calmed down, I’m looking forward to a summer of drawing. I head to a residency in Spain this fall at Can Serrat International Art Center, which I’m very much looking forward to.
