This week at EEG: Get stuff done! Go for a walk! Sing! #thirtEE 

Monday, November 17th; 10:00-5:00 p.m.  

Everybody’s got an incomplete project hanging over their heads: a half-done painting, a partially completed grant application, a sixteen syllable haiku. It’s time to finish that thing.

“The idea with Finish That Thing was for all the procrastinators out there,” says Mary MacDonald. “We all have major to-do lists and never seem to get to the bottom. So, this was the day that we could set up a temporary office in the Main Gallery for anyone who would like to join us. We have free wifi, and will make coffee and chat around the water cooler. There is also a vast library, if artists or writers would like to delve into our resources. We carry contemporary art magazines/journals/newspapers and exhibition catalogues from across the country.”

Tuesday, November 18th; 7:00 p.m.  

For the Love of Learning Youth Art Exhibition, hosted by Rogue Gallery, featuring new work from young artists. Exhibition runs until November 29th.

Wednesday, November 19th; 12:00-5:00 p.m.  

In case you missed it at Sound Symposium, check out this art-centric audio walk, curated by Graham Kennedy & Chris Driedzic. Guided by your smartphone, you can stroll downtown while tuned into sounds and reflections on our downtown space and harbourfront. Fans of historic places, happy spaces, and considerations on development will enjoy. Directions available at EEG and www.harbourviewnl.ca. Download that app!

Thursday, November 20th; 10:00 p.m.  

Sherwin Tija hosts Crowd Karaoke. Any memorable karaoke night will have at least one big group sing to round out the evening. So, why not have a night of all sing-alongs? In theory: great idea. In practice: greatest idea.

Friday, November 21st; 9:00 p.m.  

“Playing off of the kitchy pink plastic lawn flamingo birthday phenomenon from the late 1950’s, there will be 30 pink flamingos installed in the gallery for the evening,” says your party host Candace Fulford.

Party guests are invited to take their pictures with the flamingos and either post to Eastern Edge’s Twitter feed that evening (#thirtEE) along with a birthday wish, or post their birthday wish on the wall of the gallery.

Also: cupcakes, music, dancing, drinks, confetti and lights.

Saturday, November 22nd; 12:00-3:00 p.m, 6:00-9:00 p.m.  

Have you seen Nanny Walbourne? She’s back from Pipers and having a party.

Sunday, November 23rd; 2:00-6:00 p.m. 

Theatre Games: All-ages fun!

“The Theatre Games event is going to be a fun and informal afternoon of up-on-your-feet game playing, where I am inviting anyone interested to come and play some games with me and hopefully teach me some new ones too,” says host and legit clown Sara Tilley. “As it is my birthday, I will be bringing a vegan gluten-free cake to share.”

Games will include exercises drawn from theatre, clown and improv. No experience necessary.
