This year we have a special treat from you. I met Darren the Brewer on a winter long weekend in Muskoka, his family invited me over (I’m friends with his Sister) and I got to know the folks, and the brew. It’s a family business – Lake Of Bays Brewing Company.
Hello PULPY people!
This year we are happy to raise funds for The Artists’ Network. I thought this would be a good time to tell you a little bit more about this organization. Remember – you can always donate a little extra on top of your ticket price, just add a donation amount to the cart on our tickets page. Continue reading
Continuing our tradition, here is the first blog post featuring one of our artists. This year we have the pleasure of introducing the multi-disciplinary artist Aleks Bartosik!
Yet another artist bringing her art to our paper playground, here’s a little about Susan Hume Smith (H.B.Sc)!
PULP: paper art party is an investigation of the meaning of the triple bottom line: environmental, economic, and social. This year we are proud to demonstrate how a fun party can create positive social impact on multiple levels. Funds raised at the event and volunteer work will be donated to Street Haven at the Crossroads Women Emergency Shelter.
But together with the staff at the shelter, we managed something far more important than money. Professional artist Luisa Ayala has kindly agreed to coordinate creative sessions with tenants of the shelter. These women will join us at the event with their very own reclaimed materials art installation!
Here is the project as described by Ayala:
Rainbow House is a collaborative art piece made out of 12″ by 12″ modular tiles of corrugated cardboard, coloured paper strips, and hard cardboard from washing machines packaging. Each tile is created by a woman living at Street Haven Shelter.
PULP: paper art party has reached beyond the city limits of Toronto. We give you Quebec artist Niki Mulder!
Evan Brock is a fourth year student at the University of Waterloo, studying architecture. His interest in interdisciplinary design is often the focal point of his work. Inspiration often comes from exploring non-standard methods, such as using projection, animation and lighting to enhance the physical spaces created. Previous school projects sparked the interest to use weaving techniques, parametric design and projection mapping for the Pulp Paper Art Party.
We are so proud to have professional design firms participate in our party this year! Here’s a little bit about Lynch + Comisso: Architecture + Light!
Just like last year, we invited artists participating at PULP: paper art party 2014 to share some words here on the blog! PULP is proud to present: Elizabeth Gosse!
