Things Haven Alexander Has Said Tonight


Things Haven Alexander has said Tonight, is a new and very exciting series from LANDLOCKED ART! What's more - it is done Buzz Feed style, so that it can be both amazing and annoying simultaneously. A big special thanks to Haven for being so full of magical content. Keep making me spit out my tea and we will be in it for the long haul, I'm quite sure!



"Cate Blanchett was in Hannah? Huh, well she's all grown up"



"Now that's a nice moat"


"Someone has to tell that girl she's wearing too much makeup, and it can't be me"


"If some guy says freaky shit in a dark forest...I'm outta there"

Trace, the 2014 Edition of the Brock University Visual Arts Honours Exhibition at Rodman Hall Art Centre

I am in the middle of editing my Catalogue Essay for Trace the 2014 edition of the Brock University Visual Arts Honours Exhibition at Rodman Hall Art Centre.The show is fantastic and features artworks by seven graduating honours students from the Department of Visual Arts: Julia Chamberlain, Holley Corfield, Emma German, Amy Hansen, Stacey Kinder, Monique Mol, and Lauren Regier.
Make a point to check this out if you are in the Niagara area. From Brock University: "This exhibition is the culmination of eight months of work during which students have pursued the creation of a sustained body of artwork. Under the mentorship of professors Donna Szőke and Jean Bridge, students have each evolved individual creative approaches to the delicate complexities of memory, touch, presence and evidence.
The Department of Visual Arts partners with Rodman Hall to make it possible for graduating students to work in the studios at the gallery and engage directly with Curators Marcie Bronson and Stuart Reid and guest artists who exhibit at Rodman Hall throughout the year. In this stimulating environment, students are challenged to take their work from experimentation and making to professional-level production and exhibition. Students in the Honours Studio forge rigorous and impactful work within this unique context that enhances their future opportunities for graduate studies or professional creative practice with a strong portfolio.
Such exhibits from the Department of Visual Arts are key to the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts’ mandate to connect the community with the breadth of talent and creativity at Brock University."
The show runs March 21 - April 27th, 2014
Don't miss the Panel Discussion and Catalogue Launch: Friday April 11th, 7:00pm
