Atelier is an art gallery/photography studio in Vancouver's
historic Gastown, which has been host to an eclectic array of art
exhibits, screenings, lectures, and performances. Sadly, Mark's
Homefront Invasion! show is their farewell exhibit, as the owners
are moving to their new home in Mexico....but Bfly has definitely
made it's mark in Vancouver, and will be missed by many.
The space itself was huge, lending it's vast wallspace to many of
Mark's postcard prints, and included a full bar. Folks began streaming
in just before 7pm, and the last visitors eventually cleared out
about 11:30pm. As with most of the openings I've been to on this
tour, I met a wide variety of interesting folks, some of whom you'll
see in the photos to the right.
Thrwarted again by his Los Angeles duties, Mark was unable to attend,
but did participate in an hour-long
interview with Nardwuar,
the human serviette, on a local Vancouver radio station the day
before the opening. Good spazzy energy from that Nardwuar! May he
Nicole, Alexandra, & Carlos - owners & operators of Bfly
gallery, to whom I am very grateful for being such wonderful hosts
while I was in Vancouver. Hope to see you all again very, very soon.
Have fun in Mexico, Carlos & Nicole!
