-I've been Thunder (Bay) Struck! I'm showing The Translator's Conundrum at Definitely Superior Artist-Run Centre. Here's what the gallery has to say about the show:

Nationally known Toronto based artist / printmaker Daryl Vocat’s artwork comprises of a series of screen prints that explores the creation and maintenance of ideology. It looks at the intersections between natural, cultural and social influences, and how an understanding of these concepts influences who we are, what we identify with, and how we act. Vocat’s work is a collage of sorts combining vivid colours, line, narratives and combination / juxtapostions in ways to tackle intimidating subjects with images and phrases from literature and popular culture creating a beautiful artform. Vocat has been the recipient of numerous creation grants awards and is exhibiting extensively nationally. All part of DefSup's “Urban Infill Art in the Core” projects, Join us for an Opening Reception at the gallery with a second new exhibition featuring international artist Leszek Wyczolkowski and Premiere Performance of Heart-Strings featuring regional artists Tanya Elchuk and Amy Crnkovic.
