Reception Wednesday 8 July 7PM-10PM
With live music by Pindles & Oak and Elm
On display from Friday 3 July – Friday 10 July
A photo-montage and mixed media documentation of the hidden nooks and miniscule landscapes of Niagara’s Bruce Trail along with the magical beings whose paths have floated in tune with mine merged with pure fanatical imagination. Friends turned into leaf-winged fairies and horned elves within lush mossy terrains filled with lichens, fungi and blossoms of southern Ontario escarpment forests. A physical reaction over the course of 365 days to my home the Niagara region and the sublime friendships with the inhabitants.
A hand made book of poetry, stories and artworks from myself and friends will be available the evening of the opening, a continuation of an attempt of grasping and documenting the inspiring artists and musicians making up the st catharines arts community.
