Challenging the Myths: Disability & Art



I am really pleased to announce that my photographic work has been accepted in an upcoming show, Challenging the Myths: Disability & Art at the Leigh Square Community Arts Village, in Port Coquitlam, BC. This show celebrates the Rick Hansen Man in Motion 25th Anniversary by featuring the artistic expression and achievement of artists with disabilities, through visual art, film and performances.

It will be my first gallery show in Canada as well as the first time I've shown my photographic work so I'm really excited. (And a bit nervous!) Making the decision about what images I wanted to submit for consideration was really hard, but I went with what felt right and I think it's a good representation of the work I've been doing over the last 14 months. Now I just have to have prints made and get them framed!

The show will run May 10th to June 11th, 2012.  
The Opening Reception will be on Thursday May 17th, from 4-6 p.m. 

Address: #1100-2253 Leigh Square Place, Port Coquitlam, BC
(Located behind City Hall on Shaughnessy St. & McAlliser.)

Hours of Operation:

Mon, Wed & Fri -9:30 am to 7 pm
Tue & Thurs -9:30 am to 8 pm
Sat & Sun -12:00 pm-4 pm

I hope that if you're local, you'll drop by and see the show.

A big THANK YOU to my friend Jennifer Skillen for giving me the head's up about this exhibit and encouraging me to take the leap. I love you for it!

The month of May is going to be an absolute whirlwind of really wonderful events!
