I have new work appearing in The Games We Play, a juried exhibition that will be showing all summer at the Kelowna Art Gallery. The opening reception is happening on Friday, June 23 and I would love to see you there–the event is free to members and to guests by invitation. You can RSVP to the Facebook event if you plan to come to the party, but of course you can visit the art gallery at any time this summer (through to September 17) to view the poems, paintings, installations, and all the other excellent art by my fellow exhibitors!

The Games We Play is an exhibit about all kinds of games, from video games to board games, party games to nursery games… The gallery has brought together artists from game and animation studios, visual art programs, and local art communities to create a diverse celebration of games and how they influence us! (You can learn more about the exhibition from the art gallery’s website.)

My work for the exhibit is a suite of four poems, which I’ve illustrated with watercolour. I’m really excited to be a part of this exhibition. If you’ve ever wanted more poetry and art about Mario Kart, this is your chance!
