I recently launched a new website featuring my visual art (aside from photography). My work is also represented through R Studio Home Gallery, which is a private gallery featuring the work of several Edmonton artists. One of my pieces recently sold, which is very exciting.
My photography from Radical Citizen Media is currently featured as part of the Art + Activism exhibit at the Visual Arts Alberta – CARFAC Project Space.
In terms of media coverage, my work has been profiled in Windspeaker/Alberta Sweetgrass, particularly my documentation of Indigenous protests.
As well, Shaw TV has done a segment on my activism and photography:
The opening of Art + Activism on August 31 was a huge success. The Visual Arts Alberta – CARFAC Project Space was filled to capacity for much of the evening. I had a lot of positive comments about my work, and the Edmonton Journal covered the event for part of that week’s Social Seen. This was actually the second time I have been in Social Seen this summer. In July, I was photographed with a friend and her children at Interstellar Rodeo.
Here is the summary of the opening from Visual Art Alberta’s newsletter:
The date of the opening reception for the Art + Activism exhibit is August 31. Below is the official poster with all of the pertinent information!
I am very pleased to be back with VUE Weekly as a photographer. There have been a number of editorial changes over at the Edmonton’s alternative weekly in the last month or so, and I will also be writing music reviews of releases from local acts.
Another photography development (see what I did there?) is the forthcoming exhibit “Art + Activism” at Visual Arts Alberta. Launching on August 31, the exhibit features my photography of rallies and protests over the last decade, as well as a photographic timeline of 2016 events. I will be sharing the gallery walls with the paintings of Mary Joyce (who is also one of my colleagues in the Edmonton Coalition Against War and Racism) and Juan Lopezdabdoub.
