Parallel Play: ​Amanda Rhodenizer’s painting practice engages with the narrative potential of homes and land in transition. These properties may be abandoned, vacant, under construction, or listed for sale or rent. Taking cues from Canadian real-estate and rental practices, she explores the tensions in our relationships with place – colonially, commercially, and emotionally.

Bonnie Baker is looking for help with a summer project documenting old glassware and glass bottles found during your renovations or unearthed in your gardens. With over 400 years of settler history, there is a lot of glass underfoot. Bonnie would like to borrow glass bottles, dishes or other interesting small glass objects for 2 to 3 weeks. Fragments are also okay but it must be glass and older.
Bonnie is making cyanotype records of discarded household minutiae.
Cyanotype, also known as blueprint, is a historical photographic process using sunlight to make an image on treated paper or cloth.
Your loaned glassware will be treated with care and not affected in any way. Everyone who loans objects will receive one small cyanotype as a thank you.
If interested contact Bonnie Baker at or 532-0829
