Sometimes Cats!

Sherwin Tjia is gearing up for the fall release of his new Pick-A-Plot Adventure book, You Are A Cat! And what better way to gear up than an article in McLean’s magazine, a Canadian institution if ever there was one. Although all the fall plans have not been hashed out there will be a Montreal launch and we are very excited to be partnering with This Is Not A Reading Series for the Toronto launch on Saturday Nov 5, 3pm at The Drake. For those of you willing to give up your privacy you can find out all about the event on Facebook here....

Conundrum Towers

The final event of the Temple Bates East Coast Tour was in Conundrum Towers (my mansion in Greenwich, Nova Scotia). We were joined by Mike Holmes who came up from Halifax to have a Valley launch of his book True Story which was published by Invisible Publishing. Temple gave her artist talk and Mike did spontaneous True Story strips by members of the audience. Here we...

SAPPY!

Just got back from a long weekend launching Hermoddities in Sackville, NB and in Halifax. I picked up Temple Bates at the airport on the way to Sackville and Struts Gallery where we launched Hermoddities to an enthusiastic crowd. Temple was an invited guest of the OKQuoi?! Festival which is connected to the increasingly popular Sappyfest. I was sad not to stay with the hostess with the mostest Lesley Johnson, who is in NY, but found sympathetic souls who allowed me to pitch my tent on their lawn. Friday was a down day so I did a walking tour...

Just got back from a great trip to see old friends in Montreal and launch Hermoddities by Temple Bates at the Drawn and Quarterly bookstore.

Temple’s new show of paintings is being launched in Toronto tonight. Everyone (well everyone in Toronto) go to her show at Katharine Mulherin Contemporary Art Projects, 1086 Queen Street West, from July 8 – 31....
