panoramas and nuit blanche

For those that cannot make it out to see Julia Vandepolder – Recent Paintings (ending Oct 14), or you want to relive the magic, you can tour the exhibition through these short video panoramas.

Ed Pien "Shadow Play"I have also attached some photos from Nuit Blanche which happened on October 2.  I truly enjoyed seeing “Auto Lamp” by Kim Adams. (This work was displayed in an outdoor sculpture exhibition at the Alton Mill last fall.). It was like a dazzling chandelier on the rotating stage.  Light was bouncing everywhere.  The sound scape (“_scape with 6 and 7″) by Annie Onyi Cheung was amazing. I felt immersed in sound within the Cloud Gardens and the undulating video was a perfect match for the breathy soundtrack. It caused me to stop and pause amongst the bustle of the crowds.  Another amazing sound track was the Daniel Lanois installation at City Hall. The Nuit Market (starring the Toronto Weston Flea Market) on Victoria Street was crazy, busy fun. Max Streicher’s “Endgame” clowns were fantastically creepy.  It was great to see so many people out!

The last couple of shots are from the next day. We checked out Liberty Village. It was kind of quiet on a Sunday.  If you find yourself in Liberty Village check out Haveli Home and Decorative Arts.  Did someone say reclaimed, vintage, recycled furniture? Yes. Great textiles too. You may also wish to check out West Elm for more modern accessories. (It reminded me of Caban.)  I recommend the brunch at Luna Cafe on Dovercourt north of Queen. Great coffee.

    Congratulations Sharlene! I’ll try to get down to see the gallery soon, it looks terrific. Does this mean you’ve left the Alton Mill?
    All the best to you,
