Stories of Contentment and Other Fables – Installation

January 19th, 2017

Some sneak peek images showing the early stages of the installation of Stories of Contentment and Other Fables at the Thunder Bay Art Gallery. The Thunder Bay Art Gallery‘s installation team is truly remarkable. They made it look easy, even when it wasn’t.

Stories of Contentment and Other Fables opens on January 13, 2017 and will run until March 26, 2017

I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to the Ontario Arts Council for the Exhibition Assistance grant that I was awarded that assisted me in getting my drawings framed – forty-three drawings to be exact. Thank you!
