Post It Art show on Gore

The 3rd Annual Fishbowl Festival, a community driven festival showcasing local culture, arts, entertainment, and food kicks off today.

The festival runs until March 20th, click over to SaultOnline Events for a schedule of gigs and events lined up so far. Events range from Live Performances to ‘Zine making, to a Vinyl Swap & Pancake Brunch.

One event that I can’t wait to see, that caught my interest, is the Post (it) Modernism art show opening on Friday night.

Post (It) Modernism is a group art exhibition with all works completed on 3×3 Post-It notes.

Artists have created their pieces through mediums such as collages, paintings, and embroidery.

Each original piece of art will be on sale opening night, Friday February 23rd at 7pm, for $10 a piece.

If you want to try your hand at expressing yourself via Post-It note, submissions are welcome until February 22nd!

The Post (It) Modernism exhibition will feature artists from all around the world, making it an exciting and diverse atmosphere. Some of the countries who will be represented by artists in this exhibit include Indonesia, Australia, Norway, the Netherlands, France, the UK, Lithuania, and many more.

There will also be a number of local artists being featured as well, highlighting the talent we have here in Sault Ste. Marie.

You can bet I will be there to take it all in.

All proceeds from this event will go back to the café to help them support local and touring artists, something that Gore Street Café prides itself on doing.

If you can’t make it on the 23rd, no worries. The art will be on display until March 20th. Not to mention, there will be an online shop featuring all the work, allowing for non-locals to support the café and their favourite artists from afar.

This is an amazing opportunity for less established artists to network and feature their work with better known artists on a level playing field.
