Reporting on the last couple weeks.

Hello Bingoragers!

I've been away from the site for the last 2 weeks, working on a few things and a trip to Thunder Bay. Sorry about the lag, here's a rundown of the activities. Click for larger pics:

- New piece for the Fine Line Gallery's April show, Seeing Red, opening April 10'th (call for times of opening) until May 5'th, with a 'Music in the Gallery' event May 6.
529-Mowat Ave, Fort Frances; (807) 274-1269

- I was also at a set of LTTA Artist workshops in Thunder Bay. 2 1/2 days of inspirational artists, valuable education learning and the always-great 'coffehouse'/open stage night.

A big Bingorage welcome to the LTTA artists who are visiting for the first time. I'm posting links to those artists who provide me with a webpage address, and will update this posting as new ones come in.

- I picked some great canvas and beads at this cool little art supply shop
The Painted Turtle. I highly recommend a visit.



- We stayed at the Prince Arthur Waterfront Hotel. Nice digs.

-While in TB, I managed to catch some music at "The Office (Home of the Blues) tavern". While there was no hint of blues that night, there was some pretty lively alt and hip-hop. Good stuff. I met a couple of guys from the band Late Nite. I promised them a link, but haven't found their site. Chris (left), if you read this, send the link address.

- I've also been working with my group at CMHA, in Fort Frances; doing papier mache. You can see the results, here.
