Inevitable Heartbreak

Part of a larger animal-themed exhibit at the Eastern Edge, Inevitable Heartbreak is a new installation by local artist Craig Francis Power where 10 identically painted birdhouses are each fitted with a tiny video player, and 10 short animations play for your viewing pleasure. Crudely drawn birds collide with snippets of text inspired by confessional tear-in-your-beer sorts of country music. The other two exhibits: Manitoba artist David Carey imagines how toy animals would adapt themselves to an apartment setting in The Animals. Meanwhile, in The WonderBread Project, Mathieu Leger makes animal sculptures from, you guessed, it, WonderBread. Opening reception & artist talks Saturday, May 2 at 3pm at Eastern Edge Gallery located at 72 Harbour Dr 739-1882.
