Fourms closing reception and drawing party

This is tonight!

Rust/Stick/Kowl Drawing Party and Fourms Closing Reception

Rustic Owl, 993 Bloor Street West (at Dovercourt), Toronto
Nov. 12, 5:30 - 9:30pm

Hello: it's time for another drawing party at Rustic Owl, plus a BONUS event embedded within!

As always, we are inviting artists to come together, chat and make art. RUST/STICK/KOWL is a casual gathering — bring your drawing stuff, your collage stuff, your making stuff stuff! We'll have the cafe to ourselves for the evening and they will be serving food and drink.

Additionally, this event will serve as a Closing Reception for FOURMS, an exhibition of small drawings and collages — featuring artwork by W.A.Davison, Larry Eisenstein, Mark Laliberte and North Mutator. All four artists will be present … it's a final chance to see the show, have a tea and cookie and say hello!

Looking forward to seeing you.

And, apparently, I neglected to announce the exhibition itself here! Terrible! I can't believe I did that. Or didn't do that...or something. All of the promotional efforts for this show have taken place on Facebook. You're all on Facebook, right?

Anyway, my apologies. Better late than never? (ahem, well, in this case, not really)
