This is a new project that is coming from the limitations of space in Vancouver and starting in March 2021.
The home setting will stage the artwork. The name Atelier 8.18 is my address. In the current conditions, there will be decadently limited access. At present there will be no visitors. I will eventually open it up by appointment. However the work will be showcased online and curated work will be available to purchase and can be delivered or shipped. There will be approximately 4 exhibitions annually. I am rethinking how we are showcasing art in Vancouver by taking the opportunity to reinvent how to exhibit artwork.
Curiously and carefully curated in an exclusive space in my home studio. If you have visited my place before, you would know my aesthetic and style and how it lends itself to beauty and possibility.

Close Intimate Contact
(March to Mid May)
I am taking the format of the home (where we are restricted to host) and the theme (Close Intimate Contact) to build an exhibition for this particular time in history. How does close looking become an intimate act by allowing us to slow down? How does touch become more essential to our survival ?
Artists: Tamara Abdul-Hadi, Veronica Aimone, Cherry Archer, Kyla Bourgh, Deanna Fogstrom, Hugh Kearney, Emma Lehto, Carylann Loepkky, Kate MacDonald, Doris MacDougall, Pilar Mehlis, and Monica Valdivia.
