Location: Studio 111, Rotary Centre for the Arts (421 Cawston Ave, Kelowna)
When: Thursday, April 26, 7-9 pm
Resident artists Jorden Blue and David Doody will be hosting an open studio on Thursday, April 26, 7-9 pm. The public are invited to come and speak with them about their practice and see some of the projects that they have been working on, and also listen to Jazz and Blues in the Rotary Centre Atrium!
Jorden Blue & David James Doody are both graduates from the University of British Columbia in Critical and Creative Studies who have recently returned to the Okanagan from three years at Concordia University in Montreal. This spring, they will be working out of Studio 111.
While living in Montreal, Jorden was the head of Costumes and Wardrobe for the Theatre department at Concordia University and David completed his MFA in Sculpture and Ceramics. Although each artist offers a uniquely individual approach to the discourse of visual arts, they share a common focus on the materialism of cultural codification. Their combined individual practices have been heavily influenced by world travel and the cross pollination of mass media, ritual and fetishistic cultures. Their practice moves freely between new media, sculpture, and painting.
This event is free and open to the public.
