Ceci n’est pas un mur en briques


I took a peek at the kwartzlab cam from home tonight and saw the most wonderful trompe l’oeil in the workroom.  Curious, I grabbed my camera and headed over to the lab…


Amazing!  Artist and friend-of-kwartzlab, Agnes Niewiadomski, and her co-conspirator, the ever-lovin’ James Bastow, had installed Agnes’ piece on the art wall: a woven textile brick wall representation.  Sweet!  You gotta see this thing up close.  Agnes is January+0.5*February featured artist at the lab, opening next Tuesday, January 11, 7-10pm!  There are rumours of brick-cake, so skip dessert that night.


Solid turnout for the weekly Tuesday Open Night (TON).


Nikon vs Nikon.


And good news all around on the art front: Caliban Strange, kwartzlab’s most controversial artist to date, is returning for CALIbAN’s REVENGE, showing at the lab starting mid-Feb.  Deets soon.
