Herself.com Launch Party

The launch of Herself.com last Saturday night was a great success thanks to all the beautiful people who came out to support the project. The site has already crashed a couple of times due to overwhelming traffic. Caitlin Stasey and I are pleased to report we officially “broke the internet.” With such a positive beginning we are hopeful that Herself will become an empowering movement. Oyster Magazine and Buzzfeed have already reported the launch of the site with a couple of telling articles. We are excited to move forward showcasing ever more women and their stories. xo

Harold Klunder: Live by the Sun, Love by the Moon @ Clint Roenisch Gallery

Dutch/Canadian artist Harold Klunder opened his new show at Clint Roenisch’s gallery last night with a bang. Here’s a bit about Harold from Clint:

“Keenly aware of art history and of the titans of Dutch painters who have come before him, from Rembrandt’s relentless self-scrutiny through to Vermeer’s quality of light to Van Gogh’s fevered impasto and Willem de Kooning’s early series of voracious women, Klunder embeds his influences into his own paintings, often monumental in scale and years in the making. To take in a Klunder painting is to become privy to the narrative – the excavation – of one painter’s lifelong engagement with this most storied of mediums, its profound history and its unmistakable immediacy, always unfolding now, standing outside of time, receptive to the present viewer’s gaze.”

The show will be up until December 6th at 190 Saint Helens Ave. Be sure to check it out. xo
