Last week’s Artscape Equinox event was a smashing success — 400 people walked through the front doors and explored the many open studios, workshops, and performances going on throughout the building’s four floors. On the topmost floor it was a quieter scene, but TYPOLOGY had a steady stream of visitors, including the intrepid subset who rose gamely to the collage challenge. Above, a shot of the evening’s art bounty, which impresses with its variety of images and approaches.
Deciding between such a range of works was difficult, and the board was split several ways. Therefore we’ve decided to extend the awards to encompass all participants, with the top prize going to the three works garnering the most votes, second prize to the seven works receiving honourable mentions, and third prize to the balance of worthy contenders. This time everyone’s a winner, not least TYPOLOGY, for in this way we get to express our appreciation to everyone who ventured so far from Artscape’s first floor bar and took the time to participate in our little art party.
First prize is a limited edition print and exhibition catalogue or $20 gift certificate from TYPOLOGY (catalogue and print signed and numbered by Lyla Rye; value $50). Second prize is a limited edition print and 10% TYPOLOGY discount card. Third prize is a wearable art button (signed or initialed by Lyla Rye) and a 10% discount card. Gift certificates and discount cards are good toward artworks, editions, publications, custom framing, and more from TYPOLOGY — and they never expire!

We’ll be in touch with everyone who provided a legible email address on the back of their collage to arrange pick up of prizes and artworks. If you don’t hear from us, it means that you either forgot to include your email address or the address was not legible and the email didn’t go through. Anyone may pick up their collage and prize at the project space during regular gallery hours once our next exhibition opens on April 24th — from that date on we’ll be open Thursday through Saturday from 12—5 pm through May 31st.
