Junction Design Crawl 2013!

I am really excited to be starting my summer vacation today, but before I head off on a bus for Montreal to check out some art and wander around the city, I thought I would let you know about the next show I have coming up! 
I am excited to announce that I will once again be participating in
the Junction Design Crawl, with an installation in the store front of Gerhard, 2949 Dundas St. West. I am looking forward to showing alongside the talented Alanna Cavanagh and would like to thank both Telephone Booth Gallery and Gerhard for making this project possible! 
If you would like to see some images I took from last year's design crawl, feel free to check it out here. Looking forward to seeing everybody there!

playing HOUSE making HOME

Playing HOUSE making HOME
Aurora Cultural Centre - Blue Gallery
Curated by Stephanie Nicolo

June 26th - August 24th, 2013
Opening reception: Saturday, July 13th 1-4pm

playing HOUSE making HOME brings together three Toronto-based artists, D'Andrea Bowie, Lizz Aston and Wing Yee Tong. Together their work presents a refreshing perspective and narrative about domestic traditions within contemporary art practice. The works showcased in the exhibition were physically challenging to produce and will awe audiences in their detail. 
The show is a reflective space that whispers notions of the home and questions the definition of craft and the ideal home-maker. Through the use of embroidery, quilt-making, sculpture and installation, playing HOUSE making HOME is intended to intrigue audiences, bridge associations and ask the question what makes home a HOME?
