An enameling exhibition will be held in conjunction with the SNAG conference/TIJF next year from May 1-31 at the Rainbow Gallery in St Lawrence Market. Want to find out more? Come to MAG's AGM Thursday at the Verity Club 11d Queen Street (just east of church) 7pm - 9pm
Hope to see you there!
Yes, of course I understand. It is certainly our intention to include enamelists from across Canada - I am hoping to get everyone interested to join the Enamel Group on MAG. For more detailed discussions perhaps we can use Skype.
Nevertheless - I should make it clear that this is not a MAG event - it is being organsised independently. MAG supports what we are doing - but in name only ;-) At the moment "we" is myself, David Hustler (former president of Enamel Arts Canada/Emaux Canada and Gabrielle Castonguay.
It is also our intention to try to use the web creatively. I have opened a wordpress blog, and I'd like to use it for input - e.g. everyone whparticipating in the exhibition could write a little bit about their process and perhaps post process pictures, or videos if you have them. Or any thoughts about enameling that anyone feels like sharing ;-)
The first order of business is putting out the call for entry, which I would like to co-incide with the launch of TIJF. I realise everything will be a little Toronto centric, since that it where it is happening, but I will be making regular reports, and letting you know if there are ways you can assist. We'd always be happy to have input.
Here is the venue:
Please let me know if there are any ideas that you have, or tasks you'd like to take on (I am also launching a Facebook page which someone might like to take care of)
I'll keep you posted!
PS Please pass the word on to any enamelists you might know.
