Lisa Moore, curator

St. John’s Lisa Moore may be best known as an author of local-set literature—her novel, February, about a woman widowed as result of the sinking of the Ocean Ranger came out earlier this year—but a quick look at her page on Wikipedia will tell you she studied Visual Art at NASCAD before her writing career began.

Well, this month, Moore delves back into the art world by way of curating a show of Helen Gregory’s paintings at The Rooms.

This is Moore’s first time playing curator. “This is a privilege for sure… I think it’s inspiring to work with other artists, and in lots of different media and forms and genres.”

Gregory is, in Moore’s opinion, “one of Newfoundland’s more exciting artists.”

The exhibit explores museum collections, with a focus on organic forms.

“[Gregory] is exploring how we collect as a society, what obsesses us about the past,” says Moore, “and the show is utterly unique, thought-provoking and gorgeous.”

The official opening and public reception for Unrequited Death is 7:30 pm on Friday, December 4 at The Rooms.

DIY: Drum kit

Assembling a homemade drum set may seem like a big deal, but it’s actually pretty easy. C’mon… it’s not like you’re making a set of stairs or anything. Really, the hardest part is going to be explaining to the neighbours what the ‘cursed racket’ is all about. All it will take is an afternoon, and a few items that you have kicking around.
