We did it. We’re exhausted and sore and all so very sated.
The Keyhole Sessions took over Twist Gallery to create a human carousel in our rogue Nuit Blanche event, Les Chevaux. A stunning array of models dressed as carousel horses posed for all late-night art revellers, many of whom picked up paper and pencil to record the fête for posterity. Six hours of colourful prancing produced hundreds of drawings, many of which we’ll post to our Gallery section asap.
We’d like to thank a slew of people, for without their help, this spectacle never would have happened. And we’re proud to only associate with peeps who are kind, funny, and all around cool cats:
Nadia Kakridonis & Twist Gallery, our illustrious hosts. We wouldn’t want to hold such an event in any other venue.
Paul Potvin & Location Equipment Supply. From chairs to poles and a bunch of stuff in between, these are the guys to go to when you need equipment services.
Fred Gold & Aboveground Art Supplies. What’s a participatory art event without paper and pencils?
David Shimoni & King Textiles. Our Carousel wouldn’t have looked so magical without their beautiful fabrics.
Jeff Goldberg & Sonic Events. Ensuring our beats were loud & proud.
Carol Mair & Balloon Corporate Events. Proof rubber can be used for other beautiful things, not just wrapped around models.
Toni Wallachy & Pink Panther Studios. We always need extra lighting help, and we love getting it from like-minded peeps.
Mark & Performance Solutions: They saved our asses when we were without a stage.
Ashley Miriam & her crew at Proudest Pony Hair & Co. Our models’ manes were works of art from these very fine stylists.
Our MakeUp Artists: Stella Amore, Bene Pham & Aviva Rosnick. These wonderful women created stunning maquillage for our lovelies.
Our amazing volunteers who helped make the magic: Stu C, Nelson G, Sarah K, David S, Andrea S, Alex H, Handzia F, Danielle C. Holy wow, I never would have been able to pull it off without their amazing assistance.
Our fantastic, talented and beautiful Chevaux:
Kiki LaFleur from Well Rounded Hoops. She was a spinning vision enticing our vistors from the street.
Grand thanks to all our guests throughout the evening. Based on all your lovely compliments, we trust you enjoyed yourselves.
And biggest kisses to my partner in crime, Aaron Barnett, whose support and help are unmatched.
Stay tuned for Photo and Drawing Galleries.
Maybe we’ll do it all again next year. Maybe.
