It was a grey winter in 1999. With not much to amuse herself with she found performance art.
She has since been on the Winnipeg Slam team, written and preformed a comic book called "Steve", featured here and there as well as put out a cd entitled "things i shoulda' said last week". Her recent claim to fame is "Re/Dis/Covey" which is a art show at Gallery Gachet on from Oct.9th to 30th....featuring a spectacular finale on the 30th of performance art with Shamans and all!
She now gets her kicks trying to figure out how being a Shamanic artist can pay the bills!!!
you can contact her with any of your brilliant ideas or comments
Oct 9 - Nov 1
Opening Reception Friday, October 9th 7-10pm
88 East Cordova
Multi-media and text based artists and performance poets, Julie Parrell and Shannon Rayne come together to share more than just their love of mixing words with visual mediums. Julie and Shannon through a series of text based mixed media compositions challenge assumptions surrounding the label of weakness often associated with personal addictions.
're/dis/covery' exposes the range of emotions experienced with discovering the effect that addiction has in order to rediscover our own strength and ultimately recover.
Opening reception, October 9th, Gallery Gachet, 7 -10pm
A night of performances and performance art to follow on October 30th.
