Have at last started work on a series of pieces for a gallery show this July - the working title is con.text or con:text (whichever I think has the typographical clout) and will be work inspired by chunks of text. The title is a play on words around the first project.
This morning I heat-transferred a 419 email contents onto a thrifted remnant of cream silk ... hence con text!
If you need any more clues, try googling Nigerian scam :)

Port Moody Library Display Case May 2012:

The Blackberry Artist's Society is primarily a local artist cooperative which strives to bring unique, handcrafted work by our members to our community through our gift shop in Port Moody Arts Centre . One of the ways we promote this is by getting out there into our community.

Our members display their work every month in the mezzanine display cases at City Hall (just up the stairs on your way to pay business licences, dispute traffic fines and so on ...).
Another display venue available to us (and other Tri Cities artists) are the display shelves beside the Port Moody library reception desk. This area is primarily used for showing smaller scale 3D works in a secure but accessible venue.
All items on display are for sale. All you need to do is make a note of any details, e.g. artist, title or description of piece, price, and then phone the gift shop on 604 931 2008, ext. 102, to reserve your prize and arrange collection.

I'm slowly inching back into creating mode. It's been a while since I actually re-stocked inventory (seems not so long ago I was tallying up inventory for tax season!); college assignments took a huge bite of time, I'm currently in my work experience semester, and selling is always slower post-Christmas.
However, I must start making again. I'm signed up for the Canada Day fair in Coquitlam and have opened up both of my Etsy shops again.

I also have a gallery show on the go, and another one coming up. And I'm still embroidering the power station for Port Moody's Stitching Our History project.
Phew! This weekend's domestic creative endeavours inspired me to get back to my studio bench :)
