Andrew Drown - photo exhibit opening gala

The photographic works of Andrew Drown will transport us,
for the month of May,

A playground is a place we can all relate to. It is a part of our childhood, our experience. For this work, Andrew has examined the aging playground space as a means of expressing his love of texture and character brought on by the passage of time. The project also documents a cultural change taking place: playgrounds are being replaced by newer, “safer” constructions, altering the landscape of youth and of memory

From her eyes to our walls for the month of March.
Jasmine will be bringing her brilliant photography, and having a vernissage (whatever that is) this Saturday.

Art Walk

back to Jersey Street Party homepage

Jersey Ave has a surprising number of tallented artists AND a quiet little laneway that would be perfect to display it. If you have some of your artwork that you would like to show off (and maybe even sell) we will be turning the laneway into an outdoor gallery, for the occasion.
A number of artists have already agreed to show their stuff, but there's still lots of room. If you know a neighbour whose work should be seen, phone or send email, or just get them to bring it down sometime in the morning.

Meet Richard Preston

The artist who did the fabulous beaded jackets will be on hand this Saturday, at 2pm, to meet his fans and answer questions. If you haven't seen these jackets, now is a good time to see them

Curry vs. Mole; Fund Raiser / Art Opening evening

UPDATE; this is a licensed event. Join us for the first keg of draft ever poured at linuxcaffe, and support two worthy charities.

A twin exhibit of images collected on two separate voyages (India and Mexico) capture magic from the people and places visited, will be on display (and for sale) at linuxcaffe for the month of August. The artists are not only opening a window to distant worlds, but are each raising funds for charity. On Thursday, Aug 2, Wade and Lesley will be having an opening party.

Lesley Marino - INDIA
In late 2005, Lesley traveled to Calcutta and Darjeeling, West Bengal, India. While In Calcutta, Lesley was drawn to sacred places and events, photographing the devout at the bathing ghats under the Howrah Bridge and at the Kali Temple. In the tranquil hills of Darjeeling, Lesley spent her time photographing people at the Tibetan Refugee Self Help Centre and wandering from one gompa (Tibetan Buddhist monastary) to another.

Wade Vroom – MEXICO
In 2006 Wade traveled through Mexico with his camera and a few of his favourite CD’s. During his travels through Mexico City, Puebla and Pureto Escondido, he approached random Mexican Citizens on the street and asked them “Una foto por favor?”, When they nodded in agreement, Wade quickly handed them a CD cover from his collection and took their picture. This photography exhibit examines how Mexican citizens react when handed a strange piece of paper, with no instructions, right before they get their picture taken by a Canadian photographer.
