GHOST HOLE IV: Saturday Oct. 29th

Ex-White-House-board member Vanessa Rieger is curating Ghost Hole again and this year it is on Toronto Island! Showcasing over 30+ artists, some of them being White House members, and other local talents, transforming the Artscape Gibraltar Point Public school for one night only!!!

For this one-day only event, the school will come to life, or rather, rise back from the dead. Artists will act as necromancers and use their power of art, installation, sound, video and performance to activate the space and open gateways into strange new worlds! Some things you may encounter on your visit to Ghost Hole IV: Sculptures made by poltergeists, a haunted outhouse, bodies on the beach, boobie traps in the woods, ghostly children under the floorboards, altered states of reality, floating apparitions and historical building tours led by ghostly faculty.

Family friendly between 2pm – 6pm,
but once the sun goes down things get a lot darker!
Performances by Maylee Todd (Maloo), JAL, Processor, Barbara, Sunken Skulls, Dune Buddies and comedy by Nick Flanagan.

Tickets on sale now @ soundscapes! 12$

Don on Don

Life before the big house.
Stories. Anecdotes.
A journey from here to there.
Destruction. Construction.
Encampment.
… Dark. Light. Wood.
And many hands.

Come join us at the White House on the darkest day of the year/the winter solstice/the festival of lights, for an intimate evening with Don Miller. He will talk about his creative ventures, the re-use of materials, his home, Don Blanche and LIGHT!

PWYC door.
Starts at 7pm, ends at 9pm.
277.5 Augusta Ave.

White House member, Basil AlZeri, will also be presenting a preview of his winter-line of Artist Made Refreshing Drinks!

Don Miller is an idea-based visual artist, intuitive carpenter and poet who lives near Shelburne, Ontario. Miller works in a number of media including performance, video, installation, experimental architecture, snow sculpture and written word. He also works with stone, steel and wood to generate income to fund his artistic pursuits; his creative endeavours tend to infiltrate his life, and his life tends to infiltrate his art. His projects include an ongoing series of sensory deprivation and/or sensory enhancement snow caves, a large one of a kind “frankenbarn” constructed from numerous century old barns, spoken word performances at various venues, and creating what he terms “a strategy for living.” Don received a BFA in 2002 from NSCAD University (formerly the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design).
