Blood Star Gallery
The Art of Susan Taylor and Frank Ducote


(posted on 8 Jan 2021)

Dear friends of the Blood Star,

After the monumental events of this week in the United States and elsewhere, we think it's time to talk about art. We hope you agree.

So with that in mind, here is our brief update.

Susan will be showing a recent nest drawing in the upcoming juried Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA) Works on Paper exhibit that runs January 25 to February 7 on Granville Island.

Frank will be showing his folk art piece titled Ubu Roi in the juried FCA Artists Choice exhibit which runs from February 8 to 21, also at the FCA Gallery on Granville Island. With this week's anarchy in mind, it's a fitting coincidence that this piece was selected for this show. The original Ubu Roi was a character created by Alfred Jarry in a play by that name in 1896. Ubu was considered a malevolent clown who people mocked until he gained power and wreaked havoc. Enough said!

During these winter months the Blood Star will be open occasionally so your best bet is to phone or text us at 778 891 9437. We have covid measures in place. Masks are required.

As DBH says - be kind, be calm, be safe.

Our best to you, 

Frank and Susan
