The last Vancouver Surface Design meeting took place on February 8th, 2010, hosted at the home of Michelle Sirois-Silver in Vancouver. Aside from a discussion of our Exquisite Corpse project and exhibition (which is planned for fall of 2010), we enjoyed a low-key evening of show-and-tell and discussion of upcoming events. Next meeting will be at the home of Catherine Nicholls in West Vancouver on Monday May 3rd at 7pm. As this will be our pre-summer-break meeting, it was also be our annual pot luck supper. The theme of the meeting will be design/sketch/inspiration/journal books that you use in your design process. Contact Jennifer Love for info about meetings and/or Call for Entry for the Exquisite Corpse show.
