Lots happening this Thursday! First off, as I mentioned in a previous post, I'll be taking part in the exhibition Under 30 at 30 at the Japanese Paper Place's warehouse space on Brock Avenue. All day Thursday, the JPP will be celebrating their 30th Anniversary with an open house, exhibition, paper sale and heaps more. The exhibition opens in the evening...come out and support this singular Toronto institution in the process.
Japanese Paper Place - 30th Anniversary Celebration
Thursday, June 7, 2:30-9:30pm
77 Brock Avenue, Toronto
Later that night, there will be a legal fee benefit event for my good friend, fibre artist Lizz Aston at The Piston, on Bloor Street West. Lizz was falsely accused of assault when someone ID'ed her to the police using Facebook, resulting in her unlawful arrest...! Unbelievable! I am donating the piece pictured above, A Breast, for the event's art auction. The night should be a blast, with dancing, crafty art and live music by psych/pop locals The Whirly Birds, The Persian Rugs and Hollow Earth, who I've been meaning to check out for ages.
