Show at Dragonspace in Vancouver 2010
The Winter Olympic Games are coming to Vancouver on February 12th,2010 and I will be displaying my personal collection of Enchanted Dolls in a local gallery/shop of magical and mythological creatures, called Dragonspace. The show opens on February 6th and runs until March 6th, 2010.
Dragonspace is located on Granville Island, in the heart of the beautiful Vancouver city. Historically, this place used to be an industrial area, but over the years it has transformed into an arts and crafts and a cultural heritage site. The tiny island is a home of little various galleries and local artisan studios, as well as gourmet markets, coffee shops, bakeries, restaurants, performance centres and live street performances.
The whole neighbourhood has a very nostalgic and artsy feel to it with its brick paths, defunct rail tracks, wooden docks, Aquabus ferry shuttles to nearby downtown and old industrial warehouses converted into galleries and trendy shops. Not to mention million dollar views onto the glassy down town Vancouver. On warm summer days, Chad and I hop on our bikes and ride to Granville Island market for breakfast. It’s also very common to have your breakfast stolen by the seagulls if you sit outside.
This one of our most popular tourist attractions. Showing in this location has a sentimental significance to me because Emily Carr University of Art and Design is located here too, just down the street from Dragonspace, and that’s where I spent five years of my life getting an art education.
So, if you’re local to the West Coast, come down and see Enchanted Doll at Dragonspace, on Ganville Island as well as experience some Olympic city. The whole world will be coming here in a couple of weeks! I will have some nudes available for sale and a couple of costumed dolls. The rest will be Not For Sale work from my personal collection. Please stand by for more purchasing details as well as which dolls will be available and the pricing.
Look forward to a BIG announcement on Tuesday, February 2nd.
Also, you’ve got to see this amazing time lapse video of Vancouver. I can’t believe I live here! Seriously, all the places they show in the video are from my neighborhood and are intimately familiar to me from my daily routines. My very building is even in a few frames.
Photo of Vancouver isn’t related to the timelapse video, but is by Martin Kryzwinski.
