THE CHEAPER SHOW NO. 9 | 200 ARTISTS | 400 PIECES OF ART | $200 EACH | JUNE 26, 2010
The Cheaper Show returns once again. In June of 2010, the ninth installment of The Cheaper Show will take place in Vancouver, BC The concept of The Cheaper Show is very simple: 200 multi-disciplined international artists presenting 400 pieces of art, each priced at $200 for one night only. Far from being an ‘art sale,’ each exhibiting artist consciously makes a sacrifice by selling their work for less than its potential value. This creates united support for the event, the arts community, and an opportunity for this show to take place in an environment that is accessible to everyone. In turn, many walk away with sales, exposure, commissions and gallery representation, as well as having an opportunity to connect with peers on an even playing field. For website click here.
ARTISTS INCLUDE: Murray Siple, Andrew Pommier, Chris Taylor, Jeff Halladay, Jeff Otto O' Brien, Jennilee Marigomen, Randy Grskovic, and Maegen Hill-Carroll among many others.
CARTS OF DARKNESS
- winner of Best Documentary at the 2009 Leo Awards!
CARTS OF DARKNESS DVD's $20 CAD + $3.50 shipping.
In Carts of Darkness the treacherous mountain roads and discarded shopping carts of North Vancouver become the rivers and boats of self-exploration for a group of homeless ‘free birds’ who have few chances at joy. They'll come for the carts and the crashes, the booze and the bruises, but they'll stay for the story of a unique brotherhood and a quiet redemption. - Jonathan Orr
Shot in stunning high-definition, and featuring tracks from Black Mountain, Ladyhawk, Vetiver, Bison, and Alan Boyd, of Little Sparta and St. Just Vigilantes.

Thank you to Scott Pommier for some amazing stills for Carts of Darkness. SBC skateboard ran 2 pages of them in the Fall 2007 issue. There is also a small write-up in Transworld snowboarding recently.
