Open Studio Time is back at Cloudscape HQ! At various times during each month, our fieldhouse will be open to the public if you want to use our resources, work on your projects, or just chat with Cloudscape members. To get our full schedule, visit Cloudscape Events, and stop on by.
This Thursday, 5:00-8:00, is the opening reception for the State of the Practice Exhibition at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Center, 181 Roundhouse Mews in Yaletown. All of the artist collectives who are taking part in the Parks’ Board Fieldhouse Residency will be here, showing off the various artistry they’ve created. Cloudscape will be there, of course, presenting two very special projects: a giant comic jam drawn by our members and a comic jam blanket composed of dozens comic jams that were drawn by our students over the course of two years! Come by to hobnob with Cloudscape creators as well as all the talented artists from other fieldhouses.
Hope to see you all there!
“Through some great comic poetic justice league, the Cloudscape Comics Society has in their own some small way, turned the Great Northern Brotherhood of Canadian Cartoonists into a reality! (ps: Seth’s book, highly recommended!) Yes, the Vancouver cartoonists held a 24hour comic drawing marathon in their new clubhouse in the middle of Memorial South Park Fieldhouse over the weekend. Here’s my photoset. Sponsored in part by the Arts, Culture and Environment Department, this project is part of the Field House Residency program of the Vancouver Park Board. Yay for park clubhouses! Now go help their drive for arts supplies for the comics community!”
