City of Craft would like to send a big congratulations to super-vendor and staffer, Shannon Gerard, for her new show opening tonight at Open Studio in Toronto. Unspent Love (or things i wish i told you) is the large-scale culmination of a bookwork that began on the internet (well, it probably began in Shannon's head/heart and then went through her pen, but you get the idea). See what happens when thought, feeling, drawing, digitizing, screen printing, letterpress, bookbinding and installation combine. If you are a Toronto crafter, you may see some familiar faces on the wall and pages, too.
The show opens tonight with an artist talk from Shannon (followed by a reception) and runs through November 27th. Tonight's event also serves as a launch for the print version of the book (button hole stitched by the artist herself, no less).
