I am very honoured to be curating Everything Cannot Be True; this year’s exhibit presented by the 2015 SkirtsAfire herArts Festival. Opening Thursday, March 5 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm, the exhibit will be on display at the Nina Haggerty Gallery for the duration of the festival.
Nest Tree Confidences: an exhibit presenting work by seven local artists, including myself, as part of the 2014 SkirtsAfire Festival: Gallery Opening March 6 @ 5:30 – 7:00pm, runs throughout the festival; displayed at the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts (9225 – 118 Ave).
Various events have been held featuring A Home on Al-Mutanabbi Street, as part of the ongoing work of the Al-Mutanabbi Street Coalition, bringing awareness to the event which occurred in Baghdad, 2007. A reading and exhibit was held at the Bluerock Gallery in November 2012, and another in Edmonton as part of the 2013 Edmonton Poetry Festival. Another launch is set to be held in Calgary, March 2014.
