DickToolCo Art Page Expanded

The year-by-year history of the art Linda and I created when we first got together now covers seven years. On DTC Art page, you can find our art actions from 1977 until 1983 with plenty of links to the videos we made and other DTC art attractions. Collage, performance, video, audio, fashion, design, public art – DickTool Co used multi-media to probe the world and its all documented. This picture is from June 1985 when Linda and I were married and is a screen shot from a short video of the casual reception. We were happy kids!

Chris Has an Art Exhibition

My friend, painter, writer and musician Chris Scholl has opened his artistic veins and the resulting “manifestations,” as he calls them, will be on display and for sale starting this Friday at Edge Gallery in Winnipeg.

The exhibition is called Love Art & Fear just like Chris` blog. Two exposes highlight the weeklong stay at The Edge: his new abstract expressionist paintings will be on view and for sale as will his e-book poetistics. The digital book, to be officially launched at the opening, combines Scholl’s poetry and photography with striking results. poetistics is a fund-raising project instigated by Chris that fosters numerous children’s drumming programs in Winnipeg.

Says Chris, “I decided to release the book in digital form as a pure fundraising venture for DNA Rhythms, which creates drumming and recreational music making events for kids, seniors, people with special needs and refugees. Proceeds go towards providing drums and program implementation.”

Friday’s opening is a free event, starts at 7 pm and will feature a live lounge drumming session, surprises and the music of DJ Lotek. Edge Gallery is located at 210-611 Main Street in Winnipeg. The gallery is open weekdays from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. The exhibition runs until Thursday May 26.

Here are three of Chris` recent paintings.
