PLANTS YOU CAN'T KILL



I fell in love with Toronto-based artist Shannon Gerard's Plants You Can't Kill series first at Narwhal's magical show, The Dazzle, and again when the show was recreated for the Gladstone Hotel's upArt Contemporary Art Fair. Then, walking home from work one day, I caught a glimpse of the crocheted darlings in Magic Pony's display case - yes! I picked up two of the tinier ones - one is a pale green little gem, and the other is a little cutie woven with various shades of green. Perfect starter cacti (cactuses?). I'm hoping to expand my collection, as they really look wonderful when grouped together. The crocheted cacti are available now at Magic Pony - although they're so sweet, I'm not sure how long they'll last!

HAVE A BAD DAY






Founded in 2007, Bad Day is a quarterly arts and culture publication based in Toronto, that focuses on Canadian and International artists. [The] name is meant to subvert a negative concept through the positive impact of art; good things are found in the pages of a Bad Day.

ENJOYING SEOUL

I am lucky/feel so excited to be featured in the November issue of Elle Girl Korea! The spread covers how young photographers/bloggers enjoy their weekends throughout the world. I truly loved spending my weekends in Seoul, as it's just such a vibrant city (I can't express this enough) with so much to do - it seemed like new things were popping up with each and every weekend, making it a wonderful place to explore.

Here are a few things I miss about Saturdays and Sundays in that special city:

- Hongdae on Saturday afternoon (going here, here, and here)
- Late nights at the traditional k-pop bar (and eating the most lovely Korean food I've ever had)
- Art galleries and MMMG in Samcheong-dong
- Pop-up flea markets (here, here, and here)
- Dongdaemun market
- Eating and shopping in Sinsa-dong
- A quick swing through Insadong
- Itaewon (here, here, and here)
- The Book Society and The Books
- Special friends

Oh, Seoul. Maybe I'm just too sentimental, but I hope I can go back sooner rather than later.

upArt CONTEMPORARY ART FAIR







Our 2010 exhibition, For What It’s Worth: Curios, Collections and Counterfeits, explores ideas around collecting and the value we place on the objects we covet. What is real, what is worthy and how do we attribute value? Playing with themes of authenticity and value, galleries and artists propose models of exchange or new ways of collecting, appraising and sharing artwork.

Here are some pictures I took for the Gladstone Hotel's upArt Contemporary Art Fair. It was such a great event (I especially loved the re-creation of Narwhal's spectacular show, The Dazzle). You can see more of the pictures I snapped here.
