Eskandari’s photographs reveal impressions of the city the artist has lived in since his arrival in Canada.   Both formal and narrative, the works function as a text, collectively revealing hidden


Artivist Roberto Lavidez is a narrative painter who candidly tackles socio-political issues ranging from the oppressiveness of colonialism to the continuing complicity of corrupted institutions

which conceal historical injustices against defeated races in order to preserve the hierarchy of an elitist society

    Please add my business to your site:

    Here’s a little info. Thank you. Susan Edwards

    Humblepie- 142 James St. N.

    We are a retail store and studio/workshop inviting you to explore classic, eclectic design details in a creative, fresh environment. The shop smells wonderful and with blues & jazz playing throughout the store and workspace, it’s a very inspiring experience. There is an in-house upright bass and piano for live music. We specialize in vintage and upcycled fashion & interior design accessories, kitchenware & barware, pottery & linens, jewellery, furniture and original artwork. Humblepie is a one-stop shop retreat for those in search of something useful, beautiful and unique.

    Most of our items are ‘one offs’, not ‘off the shelf’, and a lot of them celebrate a bygone era of quality manufacturing that is unlikely to return. Our stock is ever-changing, and although diverse, everything we sell shares a common thread of great design, craftsmanship or engineering that has stood the test of time. However, we would like to offer more than a great deal or a nostalgic trip; and by breathing new life into tired items destined for the land-fill, we can all help to reduce, re-use and recycle. Join us for one of our creative workshops.

    Up-cycling, as it relates to interior design, is re-inventing and re-using old furniture/materials and turning it into something that works in today’s interiors. It is seeing the potential of discarded materials and developing them or incorporating them into bespoke, custom design. Contact us if you like the ethos behind up-cycling. It’s not only about reducing waste and consumption of new materials, but also to develop design processes that constantly seeks to add value for sustainable living.

    Humblepie loves jazz!
    With an in-house piano and upright bass, we always have a party going on every ArtCrawl! Please join us on the second Friday of every month for a great time!
