Eric Moschopedis and Mia Rushton

Pan Wendt, Curator at the Confederation Centre Art Gallery, tumbled into me at Youngfolk & The Kettle Black the other day and introduced me to Eric Moschopedis and Mia Rushton, current Artists-in-Residence at the gallery.

Eric and Mia are presenting an Art Talk tonight in the gallery. The official announcement of their talk describes their work as follows:

Their work involves public engagement, and the pair will be a regular sight in downtown Charlottetown as they interact with residents and visitors as part of their project to collect vegetation from the capital city’s nooks and crannies and turn it into edible-art in the form of popsicles. Yes, popsicles!

Popsicles aside, this doesn’t jump off the screen as a “summertime must-see,” so I want to encourage you all to come to their talk anyway, as I found Mia and Eric, in the few minutes I met them over coffee, far more interesting than their PR would suggest.

Tonight (August 8, 2013) at 7:00 p.m. at Confederation Centre Art Gallery.
