Open Fire: The Debut (opening night)

by alex

These are some images from opening night for Open Fire: The Debut (@ Rolly's Garage), an art exhibition by the wonderful ladies of the Clutch program.  I arrived early so some of these earlier photos are of them setting up for the opening.

The exhibition runs from Sat. Feb 14 to Fri Feb 20 at Rolly's Garage, 124 Ossington Ave.  Gallery hours: 2PM-7PM.

I changed my mind a few times about how to edit these images.  So you'll notice some different processing styles.  I hope you don't mind...

For more details:


CLUTCH is a free six-month arts-based program for young Filipina women to start a dialogue with each other, get mentorship from professional artists within the community, have access to professional tools to hone their creativity, define their identity, explore their cultural heritage, and tell their stories on their terms. CLUTCH aims to provide hands-on artistic and leadership development, through the exploration of cultural identity as the foundation for empowerment.




Unfortunately, I wasn't able to stay long on opening night so the documentation for the evening isn't complete in this set.  If you have photos from the night you'd like to share please send low res images to me and I'll post the best on this site!
