susan on alley jaunt (this weekend!)

Here's a message from Susan, who so graciously helps out it putting together the TCA mailouts:


I just wanted to invite everyone to the Alley Jaunt this weekend.

This year's 'Jaunt promises an orphanage for abandoned monsters, 1001 images of Baghdad, a collaborative toy theatre parade, an unexpected poetry respite...

On Saturday August 11th and Sunday August 12th, donated back alley garages surrounding Trinity Bellwoods Park are transformed into provocative venues for contemporary art. Now in its fifth year, Alley Jaunt features over 40 local artists and arts collectives and invites the public to explore their work through the city's less travelled passage-ways in a free, non-traditional community environment.

The event gives exposure to local artists, encourages public interaction with art, and reaches out to a diverse community of all ages.

Visit for a detailed map of the participating alleys and garages or pick one up at the red door garage at the north end of Trinity Bellwoods Park.

My work for the event is an installation in two parts called "Coincidentism". The text begins on a building in the "bowl" in the south end of Trinity Bellwoods Park and continues on a series of windows at the Grateful Head at Dundas and Montrose. Using poetry and hand-cut vinyl, the installation exists somewhere between graffiti andoutdoor wallpaper.

"Get 'em while they are hot!¬¬I am also trying my hand at silkscreen and will make some cloth shopping bags and t-shirts inspired by the weekend to sell at the "Garage Sale"

For more information about my installation and my work, see: Comments are welcome!

Enjoy the summer!
