Each of these artists explore the overlooked spaces within our urban landscapes like parking lots of commercial properties, rear of strip malls, or the fronts of chain store operations. There is also a theme of night time landscapes and a feeling of isolation.
Peter Harris is part of a group show at the Mira Godard Gallery, 22 Hazelton Ave, until September 12th.

I am back! The constant family commitments are over and now there is some free time to do art and film-making.
If you are not using social media to build your collector base then you are nuts. Last week, I posted a Youtube video entitled “Building Your Art Career” by Michael Cuffe. Cuffe provides a really great overview on how to approach social media with the goals of building your brand and collector base.
The Hamilton 24 Hour Film Festival has been cancelled for 2015. I had a great time last year and was looking forward to participating again. As a result, I have decided to produce short film for the 2015 Hamilton Film Festival. My goal is to produce a 2 minute fast pace film that people might enjoy as a break between larger short film projects. This leads me to item 3.
A few weeks ago, I discovered a Youtube channel entitled “Every Frame is a Painting.” The channel explores different aspects of film-making by looking at significant films. One example was the film director, Akira Kira Kurosawa. I was so inspired this introduction to his work that I have purchased four DVDs films:
The Hidden Fortress
I also went to the campus library and got two books on the great director:
The films of Akira Kurosawa by Donald Richie (1996)
The Warrior’s Camera, edited by Stephen Prince (1999)
I keep you posted on my impressions. I hope to use his inspiration for the festival short film project.
This is the official web site of the Save Century Manor Task Force 2 (CMTF2). This task force was created not only to draw attention to the existence of Century Manor, an important Hamilton heritage building in danger of demolition by neglect, but also to provide information on Century Manor and to gain support within and outside our community for our ongoing fight to save and preserve this heritage building through restoration and adaptive reuse.
