A painting of me

There Goes the Neighbourhood

    6 November 2008, early evening

the opening night for the Paul Bright gallery

The Paul Bright Gallery opened up down the road from me today. This is gallery number three to open up on the Bloor and Lansdowne corner. Richard Mercer is across the street, and Toronto Free Gallery is a few doors down. I still live next to a strip club, but I feel like the neighbourhood has lost a little bit of its edge. Mind you, i’m not sure that’s a bad thing.

You can see a reflection of a pawn shop in the window. I wonder how long that shop will be there.

Update Aug 4th 2009: The pawn shop outlasted the art gallery! Dis.



Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
