After 25 years teaching one semester at Alternative Scarborough Education 1, I retired in June. I will miss my engagement with the students, but am very happy to focus all my attention, all year long, to my artwork.
The intrepid Gibson Girls battled cold and rain as well as clouds of mosquitos and black flies in early July on our annual canoe trip. We had a wonderful time being outdoors together again, catching-up, reading, drawing, thinking and talking about art--and sharing bug dope! This year we also surprised each other with small environmental interventions which we later discussed, photographed and which were subsequently included in the exhibition Lost in the Woods – Ephemeral Creations at HIVE Gallery on Gabriola Island. (July 23 – August 3)
Many Thanks to our Western GG Karen for facilitating this project!
