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 in Nakusp • 2011

By Chuck Stake

drunken paw - MOE - Museum of Ephemera

drunken paw presents: egg drop soup in Nakusp, BC, August 20 and 21, 2011

It starts with the Navigator (a rental) waiting for the ferry so the drunken paw (dp) can cross the Upper Arrow Lake. Five days later, dp are on the ferry again, this crossing the Lake to head back to Calgary. In between there was lots of drawing, good meals, drinking, installing the exhibition in MOE, drinking, a tour of Wendy's land, Friday dinner on the deck at Rod Bremner and Debra Rushfeldt's land (next to Wendy's land some 5 km outside Nakusp). Then, on Saturday, the collaborative drawing began and pretty much continued until late Sunday evening. It was GREAT to have drunken paw in Nakusp...
