This past Sunday I returned to Halifax from Charlottetown where I had been installing the bee part of Assembly Lines. This exhibition brought four artist’s together to show work that, in it’s making, had taking highly personally charged subject matter and put it through a repetitive, assembly line type process that somehow depersonalized it.
I was amazed at how friendly and welcoming the Confederation Centre gallery staff and volunteers were. An extra special thanks has to go out to Betty-Jo McCarville and Erin Arsenault who each welcomed me into their homes for two of the four days I was on the Island.
I can’t wait to go back to PEI and visit again!
