Well, are you curious about how all my research has come together? Wondering about what kind of trades I have made? Would love to see your trade in context of the exhibition? Curious about what other works I have recently made? The show is almost here!
My thesis exhibition, Exchanged, runs from Friday, June 5th through to June 12th. The opening reception is June 5th from 5-8pm and my defense is the same day at 10am. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 9am-5pm. I hope you can make it!
The following article was recently published on-line and will be in print later this week. It contextualizes the project for the university community and I hope will garner some new trades. Check it out here:
An exhibition of my recent prints is currently on at the GOSA Gallery in the Student Union Building at the University of Manitoba. All images are limited edition silkscreen prints and are available for trade. The exhibition runs from February 17th – 27th and the gallery is open from 9am-4pm. Trading sessions are on February 19th, 24th, 26th & 27th from 11am-2pm. I hope you can make it!
I will be set up at The Good Food Club market hosted by the West Broadway Community Organization (http://www.westbroadway.mb.ca/good-food-club) every other week over the next month or two. The market runs every other Wednesday from 3:00-6:00pm at 185 Young Street. I will be there on the following Wednesdays: January 28th, February 11th & 25th. Find something at the market or bring something with you to trade. I hope to see you there! And please spread the word!
This year I have promised to gift or trade all the work I make. The first opportunity for public trading is coming up shortly. I will be at Thirsty’s Flea Market in Winnipeg on Saturdays and Sundays, November 29th & 30th and December 6th & 7th from 10am-5pm. The best part about the trade is that I am letting you, the audience, set the price. Objects for trading can be brought from home or found at the flea market.
I have been working to create an abstract visual language for our social interactions and interconnectedness. All images are original silkscreen prints and every edition is five prints, and all available for trade. Should you not be able to make the flea market, please contact me at mountcarolyn[@]gmail.com to arrange a long-distance trade. There will also be further opportunities for trade so please check back here regularly.
Thirsty’s Flea Market can be found at 1111 Ellice Avenue at the corners of Ellice Ave and Erin Street.
A few weeks ago I was given my first gift in exchange. It was a unique thank you coin, cast in bronze by the one and only Suzie Smith (see more of her work here: http://suzie-smith.com/). The intention of the coin is to pass it forward in thanks of or exchange of a gift. Suzie made 50 of these coins and they are in circulation all around the world. Though I am so tempted to hold on to it, I will be sure to pay it forward when the time is right. Who knows? Maybe you will be the next lucky recipient.
