Mid-OCTOBER in Kingston, ON

If you're in Kingston (Ontario) in mid-October, come and check out Queen's University's Project for Homecoming titled Creative Expressions of Teaching and Learning.  This exhibit runs from October 1 through October 31.

"Much of what we do to enhance teaching and learning at Queen's 
focuses on teaching practices, learning outcomes, course design, 
etc.  While these are incredibly important, we can sometimes miss
the creative element of teaching and learning in higher education.
This month-long exhibit aims to display and celebrate the creativity 
of teaching and learning that contributes greatly to student 
learning."      __ Queen's

Creative Expressions will exhibit the following artifacts 
in a number of spaces on campus throughout the month 
of October 2016 with several interactive components 
during Homecoming 2016 (October 14-16).  Passport 
booklets and maps will be available in Grant Hall. As 
part of these artifacts, my Iridescent Story Pieces 
will be featured at Grant Hall.

NOVEMBER: Rhinocéros - a play directed by Pierre Gregory

Hello my French-speaking friends, ... and everyone interested in theatre and art! 

This month - I'm pleased to announce that I have collaborated with a very talented play-writer/director, Pierre Gregory, on a French play that he directed titled :  Rhinocéros, written by Eugene Inoesco. The play will be held at l’auditorium de Gabrielle-Roy on 14 Pembroke St. (corner of Dundas/Sherbourne).
This is a *special* project for me because I got to collaborate with Oliver da Silva in creating the costumes for the cast.   Not only is Oliver da Silva a very talented sculptor, he also happens to be my partner and best friend.  

A new BLOG with images of the sculptural costumes coming soon!
