i am very excited to announce that i have finally secured two awesome montreal outlets for sweetie pie press commissioned artist button sets. first off, masion kasini is a gallery with integrated boutique space housed in the art-filled belago building on st. catharine in downtown montreal.
started by some artsy folks from vermont (who now reside in montreal full time), it was fitting that their current show, hello from vermont (partially pictured above), showcases artists from their home state. i was particularly taken with that central installation - taper with counterweight by alisa dworsky. it's not surprising given my fondness for crochet and organic business that comes from synthetic materials.
i also finally managed to drop some buttons sets off at the singulairly fantastic drawn & quarterly librairie/shop. it has been one of my favourite shops in montreal since the moment it opened, stocking graphic novels from their catalogue, literary and visual books from other publishers, small press and zines as well as a little art and design (mostly paper-based). i am very excited and humbled to have some buttons in the mix! look out for sets there by sara guindon, ray fenwick and myself.
