Calgary International Spoken Word Festival

Today, Sunday, 22 April, the Festival ends. My unexpected roadtrip almost done. I'm to fly east @ 7:15 Monday morning. There were goodbyes throughout today and in recent days as the [SWAN] participants and CISWF performers depart . . .

Today's festival closing reading took place in the Art Gallery of Calgary (where I contributed to the Zine Scene exhibition in 2001). Today's exhibition is Pink featuring four artists Colleen Wolstenholme with Icon; Amanda Schoppel wuith Growth; Kristi Malakoff with Glade; and Glenda Leon with Libido. I've known Colleen since our NSCAD days. The pic above is a closeup of some of her work (including "Daisy").
