Art, Music, and Clubs, Oh My!

Thursday night kicked off our upcoming three days of culture madness, as we headed to the second floor of The Gladstone Hotel to take in the opening night of their annual upArt Contemporary Art Fair.

We went to see some friends of Mark's named Marc Ngui and Magda Wojtyra whose huge textile piece "Polytopia" was hung at the entrance to the exhibit.

Friday night we will be attending an art party at the Wellington Street Art Gallery, owned by our friend Patrick McNeil. He will be featuring the work of artist Imam Azhari, who uses both traditional and modern Trompe L'oeil techniques.

After the party we will be trekking up to The Press Club to watch our friend Dave perform with his band, Ravaged By Wolves, an experimental/punk/rock collective.

Saturday will feature a visit from longtime Kingston friend Rebecca and then we are off to the Toronto International Art Fair.  The fair will feature 109 fine art galleries from 13 countries and is the largest and most celebrated indoor visual art event in Canada.
