If you think puppets are child’s play, think again. On screen Chucky taught us that these crafty figures could reflect our inner demons. But they are also a mirror to our humour, an exaggeration of our dreams… or insecurities. Can puppets be therapeutic? WP Puppet theatre would say definitely! Teaming up with This is My City Festival to bring a voice to those dealing with mental issues. Revealing oneself through the creation of… a mask, a puppet.

Hey artsy girls, this one’s for you. I am very excited to announce this she-quality, femin-awesome show, “Material Girls” coming to Contemporary Calgary on Stephen Avenue this month. Organized by the Dunlop Gallery in Regina, the exhibition features a gang Canadian and International female artists from different backgrounds in an [un]refined and [im]polite look at the creative ladies of 2016 and a display of third-wave feminism.AB, Alberta, fine art
