diorama 2006

Last year, Von Bark and I were honoured to be involved with the all-ages art event, The Diorama Extravaganza, organised out of Landon Library in London Ontario, by Carolyn Doyle and Jean McKay. This weekend we get to do it again and we're highly psyched. The reception and awards ceremony takes place at the library on Saturday.

The 2006 diorama above was created by a young human in a single-digit age group. I believe it was titled "Happiness" and it depicts two small people watching a cardboard television in their home. There is also a very attractive coffee table complete with taped-on film canister lid and other unique elements. During the awards ceremony, Von Bark delivered a short critique on each of the pieces. Each of the entries won top prize in its own category. I can't remember the category for the piece depicted here, but I think it might have been "Most Beautiful," or possibly, "Best Concept."

You can see each of the dioramas from last year here. Unfortunately, we were too wowed by the incredible quality of the submissions to take proper notes, so the artists' names and titles are unfortunately not included. This year we'll do better.

From Anthony Easton:
I am curating a show based on an Ed Ruscha drawing called Will 100
artists Draw A 1950 Ford From Memory.
The show is intended to
actualize what was originally intended as a conceptual piece. I want
people to draw a Ford from all kinds of memory: organic, commerical,
nostalgic, personal and others. This means that age range, gender,
geographical placement and variety of personal experiences are
important. Ruscha has given me permission, himself, and I'm really
kind of excited about this.

If you agree to participate, what I would need is a drawing on a
8.5x11 piece of basic, blank, white paper, like you would use for desk
top printing. Since this is memory it's really important that there is
no reference materials used (no pictures or films or actual Fords). It
doesn't matter how accurate the work is, just a reflection of what you
think a 1950 ford looks like.

The exhibition will be taking place in the fall of 2007 at the Art gallery of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta.

If you are interested in participating in this exhibition, Anthony can be contacted directly:

L.M. made a link the other day to an interview with Charles Taylor. My friend B. Smiley had recently directed us to a webcast interview with CT, which prompted some email discussion. See the comments for an email exchange with B. Smiley and another friend name Charles (not the same Charles). Apologies to readers who are also on the Ideal list and have seen this all before.
