Images from Entrelacs in the Laurentians, QC (the closest town to our cottage)

Sorry I've been absent, a cold got me down. Tomorrow I am driving to New York City, hopefully the car won't get impounded this time!

Here in Montreal Jason Hendrickson's photo MFA thesis show is up at Les Territoires. Check it out before it comes down on April 13th.

Inspired by Salvador Dali, from the Model Husband series

I am very excited to let you all know that two images from this series will be in the "Select Gender" show at Farmani Gallery, opening next Thursday in New York City! Chris and I are coming into town for the event so perhaps I will see some of you there, I am looking forward to it! The show will be up from April 1st to May 22nd. The gallery is located in the Dumbo district and so it is also very exciting that the show will be up during the New York Photo Festival.

Also, in Montreal this week my work will be in the annual Concordia MFA show opening this Friday (from 6 to 9pm). The show will be on from March 26th to April 5th at Espace Artefacto, located at 3520 St Jacques street.

Snow Angels

Today is the first day of FIFA (Festival International du Film sur l'Art, or International Festival of Films on Art). Lots of great films to see. I am especially interested in seeing "Sullivan" about Canadian artist Françoise Sullivan.

Happy Birthday Chris!

Snow, something we haven't seen much of recently

Over the weekend I was in New York City. I went with some of my MFA peers for the purpose of seeing art work and also to drop off some images that will be in an upcoming show. We did a marathon of art viewing including the Armory show, MOMA, the Whitney and the Guggenheim. Overall we agreed that the Guggenheim was the best experience. The Armory seemed to be made to dull your senses through white boxes and too much work to take in. I found it interesting for the simple fact that I was able to see prints in person, prints of work that I often come across on-line, and I must say that a lot of contemporary prints were of a lesser quality than I would have expected. All in all just being in NY was amazing. I had my car towed and the car pound is actually an incredible place where New Yorkers who have to wait for hours to get their cars back chat to strangers and are amazingly cheerful, someone should make a documentary film about that place. I also caught Joel Meyerowitz's talk at Edwynn Houk Gallery. It was great to see those classic images in person and hear one of the great artists from the show speak. Thanks NY!

More from Moncton.

So Nuit Blanche was great this weekend. The underground tunnels (Art Souterrain) had some really nice work up. I especially recommend Marisa Portolese's work (in zone 6) which will be up till March 13th (as will much of the Art Souterrain).
