Welcome to the 21st edition of We are excited about all of the new directions taking shape for this year’s Culture Crawl! The incredible success of last years landmark 20th anniversary event provided us with many new opportunities and insights, showing us how we can make the Crawl into an even more fulfilling experience for the public and artists. Crawling this year will be more in step with available technology. We will be making the experience deeper and Photo: Wendy D. richer with a web app, providing you with a better mobile experience, increasing our social media presence and facilitating your connection with artists and their work. Our Studio 101 program turns 10 this year! This exciting flagship program provides inner-city school students with the opportunity for a hands-on experience in making art, connecting them directly with artists in their studios. Our Preview Exhibits provide our audience with the opportunity to view juried work in a gallery setting. This year, our expanded program includes Alternative Creations Gallery, a new venue that allows for the profiling of curated 3d works.

Behind the scenes, the Eastside Culture Crawl Society (eccs) advocates for affordable, safe and secure studio spaces. Given Vancouver’s real estate climate, the city continues to experience losses to visual artists’ production spaces. The City of Vancouver is in the process of re-zoning many areas where our studios are located. The Crawl is at the table for these discussions, ensuring that artists’ voices are heard and that production spaces in the Eastside cultural district are preserved. Our volunteer Board of Directors and committees are active in building capacity within the organization, fundraising and ensuring that we are on track with our mission and vision. I am thankful for their dedication, guidance and support. The support from our sponsors continues to contribute to the success of eccs’s programming. Many, such as Union Market, Strathcona BIA, East Van Graphics, Mergatroid, Fujiya, Uprising Breads and Georgia Straight have been with us since the beginning. Several others are truly committed supporters including Assante Wealth Management, Assante Vancouver Centre, MODO, Stonehouse Realty, Strange Fellows Brewing, Opus Art Supplies, DeSerres and the

PREVIEW EXHIBIT

LIT: EASTSIDE CULTURE CRAWL PREVIEW EXHIBIT To celebrate this year’s Crawl, the ECCS is mounting a multi-venue salon-style exhibition titled LIT at the Arts Factory, Cultch, Firehall Arts Centre and Alternative Creations Gallery. This exciting event features work from 60 artists who are participants in the 2017 Culture Crawl. Juried by Paul de Guzman, Eri Ishii, and Connie Sabo. As the image of single light bulb in a room infers, light has long been associated with a source of inspiration for many artists. Light is a powerful tool to use for personal expression, and the theme provides artists with a springboard for their interpretation of what it means to have light and how it affects their work. While works featuring images of light are included, our jury also selected works that broaden and interpret what the title of this show represents to each artist. Works in this broad-reaching exhibition include painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, video and other media. the arts factory 281 Industrial Ave opening reception

IT Installation by Handuo Zhang 1574 E Hastings Street

November 16–19 (during Culture Crawl hours) “It” is a projection installation using two layers of plastic wrap as the screen and a moving still life film shot by the artist. The film is an abstract documentation of many insects jumping and spending the last moments of their lives in a drying swimming pool during a hot summer. By filming the cruel reality out of focus, “ It” projects countless amounts of dots blinking randomly like live cells. The projection can be viewed from all angles. Due to the special effects brought by the plastic wrap screen, the original black and white film can be partially viewed as colored as the audience views it.

PROMETHEUS RISING Installation by Joachim Waibel 1574 E Hastings Street

November 16–19 (during Culture Crawl hours) Prometheus Rising is an installation combining painting and video. Prometheus brought the fire of the gods for the freedom and enlightenment of mankind.

Eastside Culture Crawl and Cineworks present an evening of films by and about Vancouver-based artist Carole Itter, recipient of the 2017 Audain Prize for Lifetime Achievement in the Visual Arts. Interdisciplinary artist, writer, performer and filmmaker Carole Itter was born in Vancouver in 1939 and studied at the University of British Columbia, the Vancouver School of Art and at L’Accademia di Belle Arti in Rome, Italy. Her sculptures, collages and performances, as well as the large-scale assemblages/installations, are strongly influenced by the people and places where she has lived. Over the many years she has lived in Vancouver’s Strathcona neighbourhood, Itter has incorporated discarded domestic and industrial items found in attics and basements, lanes and thrift shops, and received objects from friends into her assemblages. Among many other shows, her work was included in the international touring exhibition “WACK! Art and the Feminist Revolution,” which was at the Vancouver Art Gallery in 2008. Celebrating the role of the moving image in Carole Itter’s esteemed career, this program features four video works by the artist, in addition to a rare documentary about her work by renowned Vancouver-based experimental filmmaker, David Rimmer.

The Eastside Culture Crawl Society (eccs) officially began in 1997 with 45 visual artists in three Strathcona-area studio buildings. A small group of artists interested in engaging with the public came together and promoted an open studio event that continued to evolve over the years. Today, the Eastside Culture Crawl has grown to include over 500+ artists and more than 80 venues. Participants include visual artists, craftspeople and designers, and the event attracts an audience of more than 30,000. In addition, the eccs produces Studio 101—a program that provides elementary school age students in our neighbourhood with a unique opportunity to experience and visit Crawl artists in their studios, create an artwork, and add a work of art to the school’s collection. The eccs continues to showcase Moving Art Video and Film Shorts as part of its annual programming. In 2016, the eccs obtained Charity Status and is a registered charity.

Studio 101 2017 marks the 10th anniversary of Studio 101, an eccs program dedicated to supporting diverse and engaging artistic experiences for Vancouver’s inner city youth. Many Eastside schools are designated as inner-city and have limited exposure to professional artists and arts experiences beyond the classroom. The program brings school children into participating Eastside Culture Crawl artist studio spaces for free, hands on workshops. For many participants, it is their first time connecting with professional artists. The program provides students insights into the various phases of the creative process, while promoting creative confidence and fostering an appreciation of the visual arts.

Collecting ONE OF A KIND: THE EXPERIENCE OF PAINTING

periods expanded painting to include collages, mixed-media works, and experimental media including rust, sand, burn marks, elephant dung, and even stranger things. A painting also tells a story about the artist who created it. A person began applying materials to this canvas, panel, or sheet of paper at a specific moment, worked for a period of time, signed his or her name, then stopped. Each painting you see is traced with the artist’s personal history, training, career stage, artistic project, and incidental moods. It could not have been executed at another time or place.

gavin sewell and chrissy cheung Each painting is unique. A painting is an object with its own particular presence and aura. It can only be experienced by direct visual contact. We feel this colored music with our eyes, and if we are receptive, step into a world of sensual and intellectual encounter. Being with a painting is one of life’s great richnesses. A collector who values this uniqueness will make paintings the backbone of a collection. An art collection is a material expression of the collector’s spiritual journey, and paintings are major landmarks and road signs along the way. The paintings we take into our lives tell us who we’ve been and who we’re becoming. Since they are unique, our encounter with them reminds us of our own uniqueness. Painting is the oldest of the plastic arts, with cave paintings dating back more than forty millennia. It has a storied history, especially in the last century and a half, when painting lead the artistic vanguard expressing the ideas and sensations of a rapidly changing world. In the late 19th century, European painters absorbed new influences from Asia, Africa, and the Americas.

They also broke with centuries of formal tradition to express rapid changes in society, science, and technology. The result was a series of artistic movements and counter movements from early impressionism to abstract expressionism and pop. Each movement’s intellectual culture, spiritual mood, and visual vocabulary adds to the richness of today’s post-modern work. The practice of painting encompasses a variety of materials. Traditionally it includes tempera, oils, acrylics, encaustics, gouache, and watercolors. The modern and postmodern

The viewer consummates the experience of painting. We bring our own histories and intuitions to each encounter with a work of art. Seeing a variety of paintings and some works repeatedly over a period of time, we develop our sensitivity to and knowledge of art and of life. Where a painting’s history, its materiality as an object, the painter, and the viewer intersect is the special reality of a painting. It is an event which cannot be reproduced, one which expands and deepens our experience of being alive. We hope the paintings in the Eastside Culture Crawl will stimulate you to explore further—both by seeing more artwork and by expanding your personal collection. We welcome you to unlimited one of a kind experiences—the experience of paintings.


COLLECTING SCULPTURE susanna blunt Collecting sculpture can sometimes be more exciting than collecting other forms of art because it is not only a visual experience, but can also be a strongly sensual one. Form, colour, texture, spacial relationships, rhythm, contrast, geometry and texture are all involved in sculpture. The ways in which artists work are extremely varied and depend entirely on the materials they wish to use as well as on the scale of the intended work. The techniques can range from simple to very complicated. For example, wood carvers certainly need special training in the use of tools, and may or may not do drawings before starting a piece. They might try a small one first and then move to a larger scale if they like what they have done, or they might work directly into the wood, or laminate a lot of wood together, cutting out a rough form first and then refining it; in the end, perhaps sanding it smooth or not. In making a bronze piece, the process is infinitely complex. It might start with an object that first has to be cast in wax, or by modeling the piece in clay and then casting it in wax. Next, a very lengthy procedure must be done in stages, coating the wax form in many layers in a heat-resistant coating. When the liquid bronze is poured into the opening prepared for it, the wax melts and escapes through openings made for this purpose. After this, the bronze when cooled and hardened, has to be ground smooth around all the edges. Other techniques are then used to smooth out, polish or add a patina using various types of chemicals or acids, making the particular colours desired. In a bronze, as in print making, a limited

edition might be offered. The pieces will be numbered, then no more of that piece would ever be cast again. Usually, an editioned piece allows for a lower price than a one-of-a-kind. Stone carving is another technique, and may or may not need a clay model to experiment with first, or a drawing done to decide on scale. Alternatively, the artist might work directly into the stone, knowing how to tackle the form imagined from inside. For a large-scale work, a maquette is often made. A maquette is a small-scale work created to test the composition and figure out how to scale it to a larger size. For a work in plaster or in harder materials like matrix, plastic, resin, hardened plaster or concrete, the form has to be modeled first in clay, wax or plasticene. Then, a mold must be made in latex rubber, silicone, resin or other poured material, or covered with layers of fiberglass. Anything made with a mold can be reproduced as a limited edition. Again, a small maquette is sometimes made first, depending on the size the artist has in mind. When the mold is finished, the clay is removed and the desired material can be poured into it. The mold is then taken apart and the piece worked on directly in order to achieve the desired surface result.

For glass sculptures, a mold is made from a modeled form. Molten glass is first poured into the mold, then it is finished by hand. Art is for everyone of any age. No “education” is necessary, only curiosity and the visceral response to our experiences in looking at, or acquiring art works. How did the extraordinary concept arise that knowing what we like is not enough, when appreciating art? We all respond with emotion, automatically from birth, and for the rest of our lives to everything we see, hear, touch, smell, or feel. If you like what you see, enjoy it; if not, then ask yourself if you are having either a positive or a negative experience. Look to be excited, even thrilled! Give a thought to music. Has there ever been a problem in responding to that? Bingo, there is your clue! AAAAAH…. approach art exploration with your newly opened mind! You are allowed to let go of all the old conceptions on this subject. Unlock the child in you.

Artists often work with found objects, playing with them and using glues, wires, nails, string or other elements. Looking after these works depends on the materials involved. Care should be taken in keeping them dust free, for example, using a Plexiglas box for a cover if they might be delicate. Keeping them out of direct light, particularly sunlight is worth asking about. Ceramic sculptures are made by modeling first in clay, or by incorporating a slip cast (pouring liquid clay into a mold) which is then fired in a kiln. It may or may not be glazed.
