A Lonesome, Lovesome Thing is my 2020 Sweetest Little Thing submission. It’s made from a doll’s arm, an old ceramic doorknob, fabrics, recycled plastics, thread, recycled guitar string and the usual wee teeth, made from – you guessed it: dead bic lighter parts and a little bit of white paint!

Sweetest Little Thing is an annual Valentines day art auction in Sackville NB (although this year’s auction was postponed two weeks due to a labour disruption at Mount Allison University). The fundraiser is in support of both the Owens Art Gallery (where it’s held) and Struts Gallery and Faucet Media Art Centre. Locally, it’s a fun, family friendly party (replete with a cakewalk), but even if you are from afar, you can participate by submitting you high bid online, and have proxy bidders win that art for you, you lovers of art!

yo, check the sweet sweet slo mo:
