Last week was a tough one. The news of two people passing came unexpectedly.

Mike Star (1951-2015), was an independent purveyor of vinyl records in Oshawa since 1974. He’ll be greatly missed. See 2011 post on Star Records follow: https://curatorbyday.wordpress.com/2011/10/06/for-the-record/

Wallace “Wally” Brighton (1940-2015) served as Head of Art at Oshawa’s O’Neill CVI and local artist represented in the Station Gallery permanent collection. His work “Flying Figure Pines” (1980) continues to be an inspiration for younger artists in gallery programming.

“We Go Next!” proclaims one of the strident posters. Nothing could be truer for this batch of framed propaganda posters. Next in the yourSpace gallery will be vintage World War One posters. We’ll start hanging on Monday.

This year will mark the 21st anniversary of Station Gallery’s signature fundraiser–Drawing for Art. I’d like to donate one of my latest drawings. Both are inspired by a 1960 Italian film titled “I dolci inganni” (1960). Which drawing should I donate?

It’s not everyday that I feel like Julian Assange…

The Wiki Show finished its very successful run last Sunday. Visitors were thrilled to cast a ballot for the artist who they would like to see back at the gallery with a solo show. There were 20 artists in the Wiki mix—all of whom put there “best foot forward” with very strong examples from their studio.

Earlier in the week, I was joined by a volunteer and our auditor to tally the ballots. Over 600 visitors cast a ballot for the artist they’d like to see more of in 2014.

I’m proud to unofficially announce that the Wiki winner is… Jennifer Dorner! We’ll officially announce the recipient of the 2014 solo show at tomorrow’s opening at Station Gallery.
