Thank you everyone who showed their support at our opening night for Not Just Paper Planes. It was a delightful night!

For those of you who missed it, don’t worry! You have until July 4th to see the fantastic pieces by Lizz Aston, Jessica Bartram, Carolanne Graham, Nadia Tan and our very own Karen Carrillo and Jelena Pticek.


Special thanks to Lisa Conway & co. of L CON for performing for us. (For those of you who would like to be on their mailing list, just let us know.) Here’s a clip of their magical set…

Freedom CC presents paintings by Ronnie Cote from September 17th to October 10th. The opening reception to celebrate Ronnie’s solo show is happening this Friday, so come party with us and explore his adventurous work!

Ronnie’s paintings are large-scale, richly layered works. He calls his style non-referential, because he is not abstracting anything in particular, but rather building imaginative worlds of detailed line and vivid colour that allow the viewer to delve right in and explore.

Opening reception: Sept 17th, 8:00pm til’ late
live music starts at 10pm
FREEEEEE event, like always!
refreshments will be served

If you’re also looking for something spectacular to do on Thursday night, check out SUMMER ASHES: a multi-media group show, curated by Diana Vandermeulen and Selena L. Lee. Ronnie’s work is featured in this show along with several others, including Maggie Flynn, who will be doing a one-on-one performance that addresses the notion of memory. There are tons of artists in this show – you are bound to find something you absolutely love! Plus, it’s an art show in a house. How intriguing is that?

Opening reception: Sept 16th, 7:30pm til’ late
103A Harrison St. (it’s a house!)

See you later this week!
❤ Mallory
