Gone Postal

By: Donnalee Downe

I am an East Coast Canadian currently on sabbatical in Wales completing my MFA at Cardiff School of Art and Design.

'Gone Postal' documents my exploration of on-line and material archives and the interplay between virtual and material worlds.

A portfolio of on-line image dialogues created collaboratively with artists active on social networking sites informs my practice-led research and can be accessed at

'Gone Postal', is almost a year old!

Post 100 feels like a good place to stop.

My degree show is mounted and I will return to Canada shortly after exploring Wales beyond Cardiff.

I sense I will miss my an blog, but the end may well be the beginning as it is with most good things.

I am here virtually. Have returned to Canada and today is day one on native soil. Showers are fantastic in Canada, washing up liquid is way more bubbly, but chocolate is just not the same.

Interesting juxtapositions are always on offer in group shows and sometimes the results are stellar.

Like two photographers side by side: one archive in the light and one in the dark.

Best experienced in person, so don't forget the opening this Friday, September 7, 6-9pm at Howard Garden's Gallery.

When you are ready for your degree show, it is very good karma to lend others a hand. Here, Conor Maguire wants to paint it black.

How to fold an MFA

Four days.

Four days left to prepare for my MFA evaluation.

Four days, and the decision to compress the archive weighs heavy: time to deal with the sentimental pieces.

When I am not busy teaching English and Theory of Knowledge to sixth form and International Baccalaureate students, I am busy making art and making art happen in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada.
