Upcoming Events: Some Art Happenings

It seems like today I've gone post-crazy, but it's probably because I not-so-secretly know that between my heavy academic schedule and my heavy work schedule (no student loans for this witch...begrudgingly...), I know that I won't have as much available time to write on this blog. In the meantime, however, here are some upcoming breaks to studying:

On Saturday September 22nd,2007 there will be a 'Zinefest as part of The Women's Art Resource Centre's (WARC)Youth Leaders Through the Arts outreach program. I volunteered with this project over the summer, helping to facilitate workshops for kids considered "at risk", in which literacy, research skills, group work and creative endeavours were emphasized through the making of comic books centred on environmental issues. The comic books the kids made will be showcased, as well as the process which was well-documented at the 'Zinefest at the WARC gallery space, at around 2 p.m. It was an amazing opportunity for me to be a part of, which I will talk about at a later date on this blog as the 'Zinefest happens.

WARC Gallery is located at 401 Richmond St. W.


The Cryptic Canvas is celebrating its new gallery space with a grand opening on Friday, September 28th, 2007. Its new venue, over on 8 Waterloo Terrace, has just been recently acquired, and will be hosting a great art party which you can rsvp to on the webpage. Art, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres will be at hand, so please rsvp by September 25th.


From the invite for FARRAGO at the Studio Gallery:
“FARRAGO” exhibition showcasing painting, photography, sculpture, textiles and print media by local Toronto art collective pursuing the correspondence between insulated communities of thought and belief; encouraging aesthetic accessibility and navigating esoteric re-entry. Show runs from September 19 to October 13, 2007.

**Opening reception is on Saturday September 29, 2007 from 7pm-close**

The Studio Gallery is located on the Third Floor of 9 Ossington, 9 Ossington Ave., Toronto.

Gallery hours:
Wednesday/Thursday/Friday -- 6pm to 10pm.
Saturday/Sunday -- 11am to 6pm.

And, of course, in the midst of it all, there is Nuit Blanche on Saturday, September 29th, 2007, a free, all night, art event across the city to enjoy. WARC Gallery, with its Camille Turner exhibition, will be one of the many participating locations, as well. I believe this event starts shortly after 7 p.m. and goes 'til 7 a.m.

What a crazy-busy month September is shaping out to be.
