Touched By Fire – At The Gladstone

Touched By Fire is a program which strives to encourage and celebrate the work created by artists with mood disorders. Many well known artists in art history, from van Gogh to Georgia O’Keefe, have been faced with mood disorders.

The online gallery continues to grow but this Thursday is special. The success of the 2007 gallery show has prompted Touched by Fire to repeat it this year. Come out to the Gladstone to check out great paintings, photos, mixed media and other creations at this year’s Touched by Fire.

World Press Photo 2008 + Nuit Blanche this week…

World Press Photo is back at Brookfield Place in the Albert Lambert Galleria. I haven’t heard who the Saturday speakers will be yet but last year’s afternoon presentations were informative and flushed out a lot of the stories behind the images. Last year there were new speakers every weekend and it was well worth going more than once.

Looking forward to catching the World Press exhibit this year but Nuit Blanche will be my destination of choice Saturday, especially the Cabbagetown spots. Interested to see what some local artists have dreamed up for tomorrow! Don’t think I’ll be alone either. Last year some 800,000 people hit the streets to check out Nuit Blanche and a MILLION are expected this year. TTC don’t fail me now!!!
