Canada Council for the Arts - Professional Development Grant

Thanks to the Canada Council for the Arts for the Professional Development Grant, which has afforded me the opportunity to take various printing workshops at Open Studio this spring and into the summer. Below is their blurb that acknowledges their fundamental support to the arts. I can't help but notice the last time I posted a thank you that their funding was 157 and not 153 million. Let's hope that their new funding strategy and the current government rectify this (which I think is in the works).

We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.

Nous remercions le Conseil des arts du Canada de son soutien. L’an dernier, le Conseila investi 153 millions de dollars pour mettre de l’art dans la vie des Canadiennes et des Canadiens de tout le pays.

Spring Open Studio

Just an updated image from the Spring Open Studio that happened March 22 & 23 at the Taipei Artist Village.

Moving on is always something I struggle with and in that reflection I wrapped everything I own and everything in my studio in plastic wrap in hopes to perserve the present moment for a time when I can return and resume life as though nothing has changed.

Open Studio at Taipei Artist Village

Spring Open Studio! Weekend of March 22 & 23.

Events include artists open studios, artist talk, some sort of market and a promise of music. There's also a little drawing of a full pint on the invite, which looks equally promising.

For this Open Studio I'll be making a site specific project, which is reflective of my waning time here.

I'm in Studio 202, so if you're in the area be sure to stop by!
