anona kosmack art show arlington five chaos in the cosmos

On Saturday, May 13, artist and art educator Anona Kosmack hosted her first solo show at a quaint coffee shop called Arlington 5. Located just off the bustling street of Bank St. between downtown and the Glebe, this establishment serves it's community locally made treats, coffee and tea, all while doing their part to reduce their waste.

When they aren't doing what they do best, Arlington Five also accommodates and supports local artists and musicians by opening their space for events to showcase talent and art. 

Anona's 'Chaos in the Cosmos' was a series exploring "how the universe favouring entropy can work to our advantage. It really plays on the feeling of being small in such a vast a mysterious world. A lot of the works are portrait like in nature but the backgrounds and surrounding effect place the subject in a surrounding state of awe and wonder."

Indeed, it was a beautiful evening together, having caricatures created by Anona herself and creating Mother's Days cards while enjoying delicious snacks provided from Scratch With Love. Thank you to everyone that purchased art, provided donations and came out to support.

I had the opportunity to be a part of aSymmetry Project, where my hand-painted skateboard hung beside other beautifully painted boards. Although I didn't get to physically be there, it was an honour to have my work shown both in Vancouver and Los Angeles. A huge thank you to Dan Manchee and Michael Schafer for putting together this project seamlessly.
