Yesterday, Bryan and I went to the St. Clair artwalk, which Noah Cole had told me about the day before. Noah has extensively photographed either end Canada and was showing his work at the OUT/AUT Gallery of Modern Art at 823c St. Clair West. His show will be on until October 10th.

We also happened into the home of painter, Barbara Muir. She told us she had sketched Oprah via Skype, that her cat can play the piano better than any of the other cats on youtube, and she fed us homemade pizza.

Lastly, I really enjoyed seeing Dina Torrans' huge mixed media paintings at the Artscape Wychwood Barns. They're fantasy-like landscapes with minimal but important 3-dimensional elements tacked on. You don't get the full effect from the web version, but luckily she has a show "Mapping Infinity" at Impressions Art Gallery at 102 Yorkville Ave., going from Sept 29-Oct 20 (including Nuit Blanche).
