Rose Tinted

For those of you who missed it (boo), last night was Shannon Armishaw’s vernissage, Rose Tinted (see previous post).  It was a lovely event with great food and fantastic art…what could make up a more perfect thursday evening?  I’ve posted pics of the event and hope that you will all come down and check out Shannon’s work, which will be in the Flock Boutique gallery until Aug 31st.  A number of her pieces have sold, so come out soon!  (-:

I would be remiss if i didn’t mention Shannon’s friend Sarah Jamal whose catering company Nomadic Kitchen (www.nomadic-kitchen.com) catered the party.  Pulled duck was my favourite…ummm…just thinking about it now makes me want to hop on a bus to Sarah’s house for her indian styled yummy apps!  Many of you know my 3 year old Ayan, a regular at Flock Boutique, who almost munched Sarah out of house and home (see pic)! Congrats to both Shannon and Sarah on a lovely event.

Vernissage Aug 4th, 6-9pm

*Shannon Armishaw Rose Tinted
**Flock Boutique
**1275 Wellington St West*
*August 4-31
Opening Reception August 4th 6-9pm

*The show is retrospective, demonstrating the development of my visual
vocabulary through images and ideas that have been reappearing for many
years in different forms. My most recent works are prismatic, kaleidoscopic
landscapes using source images from my time spent in Paris and inspired by
the aesthetics of age and decay that lay submersed under the skin of modern
society.  Images of cities filled with turbulent skies create a hypnogogic
sense of seeing from the inside out. The works capture a reflective view on
the world around us, rich with its unlikely beauty found in alleys and on
rooftops, filled with spaces and patterns, and often passed unnoticed. It
shows a personal mythology formed through a creative process that finds
countless mediums as a means of communication to express my artistic and
aesthetic desires. The Flock Boutique gallery space is intimate and features
different bodies of work from the last few years, and something for every
taste. The opening night reception will be catered by Nomadic Kitchen, my
friend Sarah will be tempting your palette with curried pulled duck, green
mango slaw with lychee vinaigrette, vegan curry on naan crisps, and a few
other delights to introduce you to her great new entrepreneurship
