Hello all, been a while hasn’t it? We trust that 2012 is treating you well so far and that you’re still managing to organise your lives in the absence of last year’s Harsent/Oh Play calender. Speaking of which, Wednesday 29th February is a date for the diary should you be within striking distance of the Alison Milne Gallery in Toronto.
It is with a considerable amount of pride that we report they will be showing Melt: Portrait of an Iceberg. The exhibition will run until 25th March, but Wednesday’s when the whole thing kicks off with an opening reception. Never one to miss out on a free drink, Simon will be there. We hope that some of you lot can make it too.
Don’t just take our word for it though, here’s what the gallery has to say:
“The Alison Milne Gallery is thrilled to welcome New York Photographer Simon Harsent and his exhibition Melt: Portrait of an Iceberg. In this collection of hauntingly beautiful photographs, Harsent documents the journey of a string of icebergs as they break away from the ice-wall off the West coast of Greenland and travel from Baffin Bay to the East Coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. Arriving as sad and battered fragments of the once grandiose and alien glaciers, these icebergs remind us of the fragility of the arctic and the imposing threat of climate change.”
It’s got to be better than waiting for your girlfriend to propose, hasn’t it?
More news as it happens.
