I highly suggest you drop by Lens Factory Gallery to check out Mark Coatsworth's ABANDON: BAFFIN ISLAND photography exhibit. Here's a short excerpt from what the artist has to say about his own work:
ABANDON: BAFFIN ISLAND is a story of politics, culture and ecology in the furthest reaches of Canada's far North. It is also a continuation of my previous ABANDON exhibit, examining the successes and struggles of a society in connection with the loss and destruction of their natural environment.
You already missed the opening reception, but the exhibition continues December 9 to 31 at Lens Factory Gallery, 1040 Queen Street West, Toronto (Wed-Sat, 11am - 6pm).
If you're at home wrapping gifts, baking goodies, or engaging in other holiday activities and need a little festive soundtrack music, you can check out xo for the holidays: volume II for free. The compilation features xmas music by a range of artists, including Caravan of Thieves and The Backsliders among others.
