This blog is a great reminder of how quickly time flies, and how neglectful I've been with updates.
So, without further adieu:
This month marked the end of my 5 year term as a member on the Board of Directors at Latitude 53. I've served the maximum allowable terms (2) and now must move on. But I'm not going far! In fact, the Board at Latitude 53 is currently in the middle of an IndieGoGo Fundraiser campaign to help with much-needed bathroom renovations for the gallery building. There are some excellent perks for donors, including a custom portrait by yours truly.

I've also been busy flexing my curatorial muscles, for a great organization called Timeraiser. In a nutshell, Timeraiser raises volunteer hours for many different non-profit organizations in the city. An art auction is put on where people bid on art not with money, but with volunteer hours. This year, for the first time ever, Timeraiser asked a curator (me) to select 12 pieces for the auction. I had the privilege of reaching out to some amazing artists in our city to purchase their work for this worthy cause.
You can view the artwork that will be on view and available for bidding here. If you're in the Edmonton area you can even check things out in person on November 5th, at the auction event!
And here's a quick snapshot of something I'm working on in the studio.
Thanks for checking things out!
