The Cheaper Show No.9

Hey all! It’s been a while, and my only excuse is that I’ve barely been home since April with last minute jobs all over the place. I even got to work on a teevee pilot for Showtime down in LA two weeks ago where I was lucky enough to learn a whole lot about video.

I’m not here to waffle on about what I have been up to. I just wanted to bring you some exciting news. Here in Vancouver there is an amazing team who put on an art show called The Cheaper Show. It’s an incredible concept and I remember hearing about it about it when I moved to Vancouver and how it convinced me the arts are alive and strong here. The basic premise is that it’s a huge art show featuring 200 artists (local and international), with roughly 2 pieces each. Each piece is sold for $200.

It’s a great way to introduce people to the world of buying original art without the huge price tags, as well as building and contributing to the local arts community in a big way. This show is in its 9th year and a couple of days ago my friend Lindsay called to say that their photographer had pulled out last minute. Of course I leapt at the chance to work on such a fantastic show, and now I’ll be covering events for them from next Thursday-Sunday.

Attending one of the meetings on Tuesday solidified my excitement at photographing such a monumentus event. So much hard work and dedication has gone into putting on the show you wouldn’t believe.

If you live in Vancouver please come by and show your support! The show opens on Saturday June 26th from 6pm and runs until midnight. Suggested donations at the door are $5 and if you donate $10 or more you receive a wrist band that gets you into any of the three after parties for free.
