The Yellow House

Calgary - 2015, 2016

The Yellow House

When the John Waters Club is not out in public drawing, we move our practice to a private residence called the Yellow House.

We find the time spent collaborating in this environment is crucial to our development; making drawings and working out ideas and directions for our next adventures out in public spaces, and exhibition opportunities.

The Simmons Building

East Village, Calgary

The Simmons Building

Winter 2015 and Summer 2016 brought The John Waters Club back to the Sidewalk Citizen Bakery at their new location in the Simmons Building. A residency sponsored by Sidewalk Citizen Bakery and Phil and Sebastian Coffee. Heart melting food, great people and numerous drawings completed and under way. Two of our framed drawings have permanent homes with Sidewalk Citizen; one in the Simmons Building space and one at Sidewalk Citizen’s Kensington location.

The Bourbon Room

Speakeasy Style Tavern

The Bourbon Room

In 2015 The John Waters Club made a number of drawings during a series of sessions at Calgary’s Bourbon Room.

The Bourbon Room is a speakeasy style tavern - a private room in the National on 10th. Sponsored by our wonderful friend Kevin Kanashiro. The atmosphere certainly inspired and fuelled the drawings made and our knowledge of bourbon was catapulted to a new level!

drunken paw: drawing in public

by Diana Sherlock

drunken paw: drawing in public

The otherworldly image of a drunken paw conjures up magical associations and tall or fantastical tales. And so it is that drunken paw Love Triangle Evil as All Bejeesus, an exhibition at Kensington's Hot Wax Records, tells a tale about the storyteller, drunken paw, who mediates the conscious and unconscious realms of experience to render fanciful imagescapes drawn from life. The stories are drawings, a selection chosen from approximately 50 works on paper and found supports produced by this Calgary-based drawing collective since 2009.
