Sarah Joncas prepares to turn heads this June…

Sarah Joncas is hard at work in her studio up in Toronto, Ontario putting the finishing touches on her debut solo show, ‘Beneath The Seams’, which opens at Thinkspace on Fri, June 12th.
The new works for ‘Beneath The Seams’ show an increased use of narrative and an excellent use of space. This exhibition will feature some of her largest and most personal work to date.
The above gem, with a working title of “Dinner and a Movie”, measures 60″ wide x 30″ high. The image above is just a close up snippet of this beautiful piece, more wil be revealed soon.
To view some shots of her studio, along with some sketches and process shots, be sure to check out the ‘Sneak Peek’ set we’re compiling over at our Flickr page here. Look for more images to be posted as the show gets closer.
Keep tabs on Sarah over at her live journal here.

‘Brandi Milne’s Easter Egg Hunt’ details:

A large number of Easter eggs will be hidden about the gallery (both inside and out – hoping it doesn’t rain!!!) for patrons to hunt for and discover. Each egg will contain a special ticket, good for one of many prizes to be redeemed that evening, including the grand prize, a framed one-of-a-kind original drawing from Brandi herself. Other prizes will include limited edition giclee prints, copies of Brandi’s latest book with Baby Tattoo “So Good For Little Bunnies”, one-of-a-kind original sketches, one-of-a-kind hand-made creations from Brandi, copies of her new Gelaskins, and much more.

*Limit one egg per patron during the hunt
