1. Swizzle Studio returns

We're back from The Grand Tour. We won't lie to you, it was fun. We have now returned to Toronto and plan to remain here for the foreseeable future. Christine and I have a lot of art projects planned for future days, both under the Swizzle banner and with our favourite organizations and venues.

As promised, we kept a blog of our trip full of drawings, photos and cheeky observations. Here's the link:


2. Remnants opens this Friday

Remnants, a 14 piece exhibition of ink and gouache drawings by Rob Elliott, opens this Friday, October 16, at NAC in St Catharines.

These works bring to mind the children's advertising and educational reading materials of the early 1970s. The images are reminiscent of old confectionary ads and elementary school primers, and engage the viewer with their sinister humour and a playful sense of wit.

The reception will coincide with a closing party for Seth's Wine King Float, in NAC's Show Room Gallery.

October 16 to November 6
Opening reception: Friday, October 16, 8 p.m.
Niagara Artists Centre
Dennis Tourbin Members' Gallery
354 St. Paul Street
St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada
