And now for something completely different

To add a more positive note, today was the visual arts day for me. First I and Alex went to Trinity-Bellwoods Park to see the art show. A friend of mine, Anya Galkina, had a booth there. I haven’t seen her works before, and they are really beautiful. Besides, later today I discovered her blog and found it a delightful reading.
From Trinity-Bellwoods Park we proceeded to tinku gallery for an opening reception of John Guthrie’s Fetish exhibition. Both the gallery and the exhibition were smaller than I expected but enjoyable. The building is also very interesting. The indoor balconies with potted plants were very pretty and for some reason reminded me of Venetia, where I have never been. (BTW this photo is ugly and does not give them their due, but I could not find a better one.) I got to talk to some interesting people, too.

There was also a Polish festival on Roncesvalles, next door to the gallery, but we did not go there because of the rain. And when we left the gallery, the festival was almost over – a shame, as I really could do with a kielbassa sandwich.

All three events are still on tomorrow (Sunday the 14th). Hurry! Hopefully you will be luckier with the weather.

    Hey Tania, thank you for visiting my booth and saying nice things and inviting me to the Tinku thing. It’s nice to discover a fellow Russian expat who thinks and writes in English. 🙂

    Spatula, the pleasure was entirely mine. I don’t think in English, though, and I am not sure I want to. I write in it, of course. (I write, therefore I am?)
