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$

It seems our upcoming artshow dedicated to Randy Savage and curated by Nathaniel G. Moore is generating some hype. Turns out Hulk Hogan re-tweeted his post about the upcoming show and since then other news feed websites have been posting about it. If you would like to get involved in this homage and celebration of the life of the Macho Man you still have one week left to submit.
Call for Submissions for:
Video art, drawings, collage, audio, or if maybe you have something unexplainable that conveys Macho Madness, go for it.
Deadline for SAVAGE submissions is October 1, 2011.
Submit to Nathaniel at BOWLBRAWL AT GMAIL DOT COM.

Curated by Vanessa Rieger.
Ghost Holes are an unexplainable phenomena that
occur in areas of high paranormal activity. They
can be found in attics, alley ways, under bridges
or under beds. When the veil between worlds is
thinnest, these otherwise dark and lonely places
become activated and transformed. Mysterious
ghosts and supernatural entities have been recorded
opening doorways that can lead into other worlds,
other times and other dimensions.
Ghost Hole at the White House is a temporary portal
open to all souls to investigate
