HYBRID was our first group show featuring local artists and it was a real privilege to share the work of so many talented artists in the space.
First-timer Amanda Palmer sold everything she put up and then some, which was a dream start to her artmaking career. We had many works generously made available through Art Gusto, a local supported art studio. A couple of provocative pieces by Joshua Maxwell de Hoog had everyone talking and Josh McCrimmon's rich, burnished surfaces and subtle, natural picture boxes were a real standout. We ran the opening in combination with Music at the Mill, which had a great turnout with over 2000 people on the paper mills site. HYBRID was a fun show and getting to meet so many new faces was a definite high point.
