I remember with clarity flying up 87 North in my copper 1980 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz, averaging twelve miles to the gallon like a good ol’ trusty steed should. We arrived at customs and were questioned by pesky yet notably handsome officers. Their accents were unfamiliar.

Vicki is pleased to present May West, a celebration of the spring season with work by three Montréal-based artists.

Lorna Bauer presents six glass sculptures. Simon Belleau presents three objects, two made of wood and another primarily consisting of a baseball mitt. Mégane Voghell presents four drawings. One of these is presented on a table in collaboration with Simon Belleau. This exhibition takes place in Vicki’s 325 Liberty Street location, in what existed before as the reception area for an automotive mechanic. Vicki would like to thank Megan Murphy Martinez and Harry Moritz for their support.
