Beginning on March 20th, 2009, Steam Whistle Brewing is hosting an Entomological art exhibition by a group of Toronto artists from the Queen St. Scene creating as painters, illustrators, graffiti artists or working in metal: Nancy Draws, Runt, Sam Ferrara, Vesna, Fiona Smyth, Serge Fortin and Joey DAMMIT!. Curator Nancy Draws, chose bugs as the showâ€™s theme for the diverse ways in which we view them. A love-hate relationship with insects, the media has conjured flu bugs – smart bugs – doodle bugs- bad bugs. From portrayals of Jiminy Cricket to 100 foot spiders, artists have had fun exploring and creating on our hopes and fears. The exhibition by these prolific artists will continue until April 5th.
