‘WE’ artist fundraiser tonight

Several local artists who are taking their show on the road to Scotland are hosting a fundraiser and silent auction tonight Friday January 17 to support the trip. The artists are part of the exhibition WE curated by Matthew Mark Bourree and Yvonne Mullock opening at the Old Hairdressers gallery in Glasgow on January 24 for its final instalment.

Conceived as a three-part community-based exhibition that would bring six Glasgow-based artists to Haight Gallery in Calgary and six Calgary-based artists to The Old Hairdresser’s in Glasgow and all 12 artists at Latitude 53 in Edmonton WE offers "an independent take on art-making elsewhere; documenting and exploring the connections in and between these two cities."

The six Calgary-based artists include Andrea Williamson Hannah Doerksen Kent Merriman Jr Steven Cottingham Tyler Los Jones and Stephen Nachtigall.

The event starts at 8 pm at Bakery Studio (2001 10 Ave. S.W. next to Truck Gallery) with works by the artists as well as special guest Jeremy Pavka available.
