(almost) live reportage from the scene,
Quite a few friends of Kwartzlab were there - Darin and David White, Stephanie Tanner from Mushroom Catering (who wonders why she doesn't get mail from us anymore), Laurel McKellar and David Marskell from theMuseum, former lab artists James Nye, Cherie Fawcett, and Nik Harron, Craig Kingston from Felt Lab, surely others ...
the Cafk+a crew of course, esp Sarah K, who will help spread the word for Maker Faire
also some we might like to contact - Laura DeDecker for instance, a video artist who's been working recently with Christie Digital (wonder if she'd be a prospect for the Faire)
anyway, tons of other friendly people, an excellent evening with artists' installations on every floor of the hotel, food, bar and music.
Don't miss the next one !!

I'm going to the opening tonight if anyone wants to join me. I'll be leaving from the lab at 7pm and walking over since it's only a few blocks, and the weather is so great.

Opening Thursday, May 2 at 7 PM
For those of you still wondering what you will be doing this Thursday evening, CAFKA has invited everyone to attend the opening reception for CAFKA at The Walper Hotel at 7 PM. And if you really want to get your art on, earlier in the evening, the University of Waterloo Art Gallery is opening two MFA Thesis Exhibitions, "The Gesture and the Drip" by Nicholas Breton and "Possibly, Maybe" by Jessica Massard at 5 PM.
Since its inception CAFKA has been a fall festival of contemporary art in public spaces. Following SURVIVE. RESIST., CAFKA’s last biennial exhibition, the organization decided to become a biennial spring event and that it would in the future collaborate closely with our sister festival, the Open Ears Festival of Music and Sound. CAFKA @ The Walper Hotel and Between the Ears is our first spring event, our first collaborative program and a hint of things to come. The CAFKA Biennial will return as a month-long exhibition of art in the public spaces of the Waterloo Region in June of 2014.
CAFKA @ The Walper Hotel is a program of contemporary art installations that engage the unique spaces of the historic Walper Hotel in downtown Kitchener. The exhibition consists of sculptural intervention, photography, animation, sound installation, and mixed media installation. The projects presented here, we hope, will engage the Walper’s patrons and the staff and animate the life and history of this busy urban hotel.
Artists featured in CAFKA @ The Walper Hotel will be Laura De Decker (Waterloo, ON), Dave Dyment (Toronto, ON), Manuela Lalic (Montréal, QC), Tor Lukasic-Foss (Hamilton, ON), Ellen Moffat (Saskatoon, SK), Janet Morton (Guelph, ON), Daniel Olson (Montréal, QC), and Stephanie Vegh (Hamilton, ON).
CAFKA is pleased that this exhibition is also part of another event, Between the Ears co-produced with the Open Ears Festival of Music and Sound, a weekend festival of music and sound art featuring improvisation, mechanical music, live concert music and micro performances, taking place at Kitchener City Hall, the Walper Hotel, and the Registry Theater on May 31 and June 1.
CAFKA is a non-profit, artist run organization that is supported by its members and donors. CAFKA @ The Walper Hotel and CAFKA’s participation in Between the Ears is made possible with the support of the Ontario Trillium Foundation, Kitchener-Waterloo Community Foundation – Musagetes Fund, Christie Digital, Region of Waterloo Arts Fund, City of Kitchener, Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund, Ontario Arts Council, and City of Waterloo.
