Lakeshore Camera Club Presentation

I presented my collage project created from 1940s and 1950s copies of Esquire magazine and brought in ten works that were exhibited in a separate room at Stewart Hall for the members to look at during the break. Below from the website - forgot to take a screen capture when it was still in the future.

Baltic Artists Association Talk

I gave a presentation to the Baltic Artists Association of my philosophy towards art and photography's relation to it. Although I consider myself half Polish and half Dutch, I was able to start off the presentation with the fact that my father had been born in Estonia.
I am hoping to see what was written about it soon.

Presenting My Couch Project in Front of My Fellow FFAR250 students

For our last FFAR250 class of the year Dr Mary Jo Thompson (MJ) requested in an email that some of her students share their art projects at the next lecture and stated in that email that the first 20 would be accepted. I replied the next day and when I heard nothing I assumed that I was too late. A number of days later I received a rejection email because I had responded to a "do not respond" email and resigned myself again to not presenting. My wife had a course that morning and bumped in to MJ and mentioned my story. MJ said that she had not even received her number of presenters and said I could do it. Without any presentation I went in front of the 200 or so students and gave a fast overview of my couch project in my ten allotted minutes by using my couch blog postings. It was surprising to me that the other students were not more excited to be able to share their projects with the others. When I mentioned this to other people they thought that it could be that the others were worried that their ideas may be stolen- there may be some logic to this, but too me that will happen whenever you get around to showing your work.

Artist Showcase -Close Up

for the theme Close -up I used my Canada portraits of Montreal Westers and made close-ups of their eyes and mouths for the residents to see who they recognized.
