The experiment continues…
The 2 Hands Create experiment is a a blank canvas, source of sanity, support, inspiration and encouragement for all.
Each month over the summer and fall we use the underlying theme of old wood to present the creators products in a curated atmosphere; offering a unique twist on the popular market theme which is perforating the six.
To promote and hype ourselves up for August we added the element of live TV
We linked up with web TV man Hugh Reilly of www.ThatChannel.com for a “Liquid Lunch”. No libations just spinal fluid bathing our brains. Erin, our artist Magnet Co-Hosted two interviews one with a special interview with well know Toronto Socio-Political Artist Hollis Baptiste and some of the upcoming August Artists.
Hollis discussed his upcoming photo book, “Bad Habit”. A photo compilation of his current and previous art work which will be released this fall. A subversive exploration of gun violence & consumerism, which offers thought provoking works designed to evoke uncomfortable feelings. A timely contemporary consideration of our times.
While Erin & Hugh interviewed Sau Fann Lee of Quilty Pleasures and Donna Angella Bartley of DAB Designs who are here for the month of August, I engage the other side of my brain and jetted back to the day job. Ninabana and Aaaron Lozansy, our painterly artists could not attend, so we are aiming to interview them in the upcoming weeks. Hold the date October 15th night shop into your calendar for the launch of Hollis and his published book.
Join us next Saturday from 6-10pm @ 503 Queen Street East, meet the artists, & enjoy yourself at the hippest, freshest smelling little art shop in Corktown.
Thank you to all the shoppers, Eyze Designs, Twisted Metal in Motion, & Quilty Pleasures for allowing me to blend a fresh environment with our fabrics, art, fashion, jewellery, hammer, nails and spackle!
See you soon.
