"Something for Your Mantel"

Logo by Marc O'Brien

Hey everyone, please come check out the installation that I have been working on with Marc O'Brien and Sarah McCaw at the Big on Bloor Festival this Saturday the 21st and Sunday the 22nd from 1-9pm.

Project Statement:
"Something for Your Mantel"

Being asked so many times, “Why can’t you paint pretty pictures?” Artists Erin Loree, Marc O'Brien and Sarah Elizabeth McCaw toy with the notion of what their “ugly” work would look like in “grandmother’s house”.

"Something for Your Mantel" is an installation that assumes a ghost image of a warm and familiar home and dips it in the sleek but often sterile aesthetic of a gallery space. The works featured in the installation will encourage the viewer to consider who makes art and where it belongs.

The free-standing structure will be exhibited on July 21st and 22nd at the Big on Bloor Festival (between Dufferin and Lansdowne). The project is being created on behalf of the OCADU Alumni Association. We are incredibly thankful for their support!
