Willow would like to thank Concordia's Fine Arts Student Alliance (FASA) for their contributions to our project through the Special Projects Grants funding initiative. This financial support, in addition to that provided by our private donors and sponsors, helps us to make Willow a truly engaging, safe, and interactive performance. We are awaiting responses from further funding organizations and hope to reach a budget goal of $1,970, to be spent on equipment, costuming, permit and refreshment costs, accessibility concerns, etc. as well as compensating our contributors and collaborators, all of whom are emerging artists. If you would like to help us reach this goal, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you and much love!
Hello all! Willow's March 11th premiere performance experiment at the Mainline Gallery's Tender Teeth exhibition was wholly a success. Our short-form performance generated a multitude of critical and experiential feedback, and helped us to solidify our performance and collaborative structure for future events including the upcoming May shows in the Black Box Studio. We would like to dearly thank our host and curator, Catherine McCrae, for selecting us to fill the space alongside other wonderful artists and their works. We would also like to praise Ms. Alexandra Martin for her support and body art additions to our performance, as well as all of our attendees and viewers for their presence, involvement, and interest in our project. You've provided us with a lot of new material and inspiration. Stay tuned for and please be a part of the forthcoming chapters of our ever-evolving work.
We are very pleased to announce that Willow will be performing in association with Art Matters Festival this March. As part of an exhibition entitled Tender Teeth curated by Catherine McCrae, we are putting together a special performance exploring softness, tenderness, and malleability in relation to the self, community, and environment. The exhibition will also feature the work of 7 other artists and will be hosted at Mainline Gallery from March 5th to 18th. More details will be released soon here and on the Art Matters website at http://artmattersfestival.org. Stay tuned!
