A Little Less Insanity: A 90-Piece, Layered Jigsaw Puzzle

There is now another wooden 3D puzzle on my Gallery page.  Like big brother, the 140-piece monster, this one also has multiple layers.  However, it has only 90 pieces, so it should be a cinch to complete, relatively speaking!

Like puzzles?  Come try one this weekend only at Gallery Bistro (2411 Clarke Street, Port Moody).  Opening hours are 10am-3pm on Saturday, December 14 and Sunday, December 15.

Exhibition at Gallery Bistro

Since many of my readers are too far away to come to my exhibition, I have this video to provide an idea of what it looks like.  (As a reminder to my local readers, the Gallery Bistro is open 10am-3pm Tuesday through Sunday and I am at the gallery most Sundays.)

Some pieces which you may not have seen previously appear in the video and can be found in my  Gallery.  The video also shows different angles of the pieces with which you are already familiar.

I would suggest watching the video in high-definition.  The video is 8:36 long and free of dialogue.

Stories from Artwalk, Part 1

During Artwalk, I showed my work in Gallery Bistro (2411 Clarke Street) with three other artists:  Bronwen Belenkie, Clive Tucker and Mandara Lebovitz.  Our exhibition will continue through April 28th. The gallery is open 10am-3pm Tuesday through Sunday.

Background

The building in which I exhibited was recently bought by husband-wife duo Rainer (pronounced Rye-ner) and Helen Daniels.  There is a cafe in one half of the building and an open gallery space in the other half (behind the white bars which were removed before the show).

Moving Day

The Thursday before Artwalk was our set-up day.  It began with a knock on the door from Rainer Daniels and together we moved Relationship Study in his pick-up truck, upside-down.  The table fit neatly between the wheel wells and was a few inches of the closed tailgate.  The rest of my work, including one of my latest pieces, There is Not Always Light at the End of the Tunnel, was loaded into another vehicle.

Setting Up the Gallery

After we got my work into the gallery, Bronwen and Mandara arrived with their 2D art and begun to install their work on the walls with nails.  There was a moment when we all watched as Bronwen’s young son, who was helping, set down his claw hammer on Relationship Study in what seemed like slow motion.  Luckily, there was no damage and we decided that it would be a good idea to cover the table with moving blankets.

Centre

Last to arrive was Clive.  His colourful ceramics filled the large shelf unit and a table at the end of the space.

Together, our work filled the floorspace and shelves and covered the walls.

The Front Windows

Gracing the left front window and enticing passers-by were Clive’s Triceratops, Bronwen’s Looking Up At Alders and my shelf Deconstructed.

I had hoped to have the video of my PechaKucha presentation by now, but I do not have it.  I will post it when I get it.
