Broke Peanut

Broke Peanut

So…..I was on my way to the afternoon tea last week when I came across what I thought was an interesting new shop!  It was dark inside so I put my face to the window and peered inside. It looked a bit bare but there were two smiling girls inside who waved at me to come in!

Well,……. it was an art installation masquarading as a shop! One of the great things about living in a city with a renowned art college you never know what you might stumble across. This “shop” was all about the broke life of an artist. They were selling the lifestyle of an artist for peanuts.

I can’t say that I understood it all but it was fun to have a poke about and look at everything.

This is the jar of peanuts around which the exhibit revolves.

There were some  notebooks full of cute illustrations

Here are the artist signatures available for peanuts on shards of broken glass. I love  events and places like this. Makes one think. I don’t always get it but I find it interesting!

The installation is on until April 14th at 1660 Granville street, 10:30 until 5:30, closed on Wednesday. Here are the two creators, both in their 3rd year at NSCAD. Marielle Dalpe and Barbara Scheed.
