I was very excited to curate and open the International Exhibition WORDS featuring works of handmade paper integrated with words of haiku and poetry, May 19th at the Northern Front Studio Gallery located beside the Yukon River in Whitehorse, Yukon. The opening night was a hit and packed the place with a visiting Haiku Canada conference. Several of the 30 artists exhibiting attended but I wish we had more to represent the 10 countries displayed. The sun was shining long past 10pm when the opening ended. The event was catered by Alpine Bakery supplying delicious organic vegan appetizers.
