The show is full of beautiful, affordable pieces that really show off Vancouver’s unique pool of artists. We are very lucky to be included in such amazing company.

GAM’s hard-working and devoted curators, Julia and Tarah, have put together a slick catalog of the works:

Gallery hours for this week are :

  • Thursday from 11 am – 5 pm
  • Friday and Saturday from 11 am – 6 pm.

Group Show at Gam Gallery

We have some pieces in a group show at the amazing new Gam Gallery in downtown Vancouver.

And it was a very nice surprise to find ourselves featured as a “dynamic duo” on the excellent local blog VANCOUVER IS AWESOME:


Van Is Awesome 2014



VIA is a great blog with a mandate to promote the best of Vancouver.

Sunshine Frere is a dynamo herself, having started the Papergirl Project which distributes fine art to the happy people.

There is also a write-up of the show, with lots of pics, at Scout (another blog that any Vancouverite should know about).

Now that you have a good view of the show, I can post my statement (Keith’s is on his site):

Heavy Lines
My work is usually representational, so I used the daily deadlines of a recent Thirty Days Project to challenge myself to work in abstraction. Selecting a few of those thirty pieces for further examination, I studied with a classic sumi-e teacher in Osaka to learn new brush and ink techniques in order to express them more completely.

The finished pieces are abstractions of real-world subjects and their simple, bold, dynamic lines belie the technical and physical demands involved in their creation.

Our Show at Kafka’s in Vancouver


We’re finishing up our work, getting ready to hang it tomorrow in time for the opening on Thursday, August 15.

My pieces are large, abstract works based on explorations from my Thirty Days Project work.

Keith’s pieces are all large-scale woodblock-style prints based on the “heavy sky” series he did during Thirty Days Project last November.

We would love to see any of you at our opening event on Thursday night, from 8pm, at Kafka’s Coffee and Tea, 2525 Main Street at Broadway.

I will be catering and Tim Gerwing will be playing his own amazing music, much of which will be based on his own Thirty Days Project work.
