I am excited to be participating in Plexus, a group show opening at DNA Artspace in London
This is my first exhibition in London since I was a high school student at Sir Frederick Banting S.S.
Here are the details:
DNA is pleased to announce our next exhibition, Plexus. We would like to invite you to celebrate with us on November 25th, from 7-10pm for the Opening Reception.
Exhibition Dates: November 25 - December 22, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, November 25, 7 to 10pm
Plexus involves over sixty contemporary artists from London, across Canada and internationally, who are in various stages of their careers. The premise of Plexus stems from a consideration of the material; graph paper, which is essentially a network of squares used to guide the process of writing or image making. We have invited over thirty artists to make a work in collaboration with a fellow artist of their choice, using a piece of graph paper. Our aim for Plexus is to highlight the ongoing support for our local network of artists, while extending the exposure of DNA outside of London, Ontario.

Over 72 artists and 2 collectives are participating in these international site interventions. An interactive website will provide access to information, documentation and additional events for all sites.
