“I am a fine artist, oil painter. I’ve lived in Leslieville for thirteen years. You may recognize me, I’m around. While I’ve lived at Booth Ave and Queen through this time I’ve developed my art career, exhibiting locally and this summer I was invited to exhibit my oil paintings in the La Pigna Gallery in Rome and, in December will be exhibiting in the Bellini museum in Florence. With work and tenacity it’s incredible to advance to become an international artist while living in Leslieville!”

On invitation from curator Rosi Raneri, Pack’s paintings were on display at the La Pigna Gallery located in Rome’s Papal District, in the “Over the Realms of Dreams” exhibition earlier this September. Raneri said, “I really admire her work.”

Having been well received at La Pigna, Pack has received invitation to participate in the Contemporary Art exhibition at the prestigious Luigi Bellini Museum in Florence Italy coming up 14-21 December 2019.

In this opportunity of a lifetime, Pack hopes to inspire, encourage and nurture other artists to produce beautiful work that changes the world.

The Flick – an Annie Baker play

Catch The Flick in Leslieville throughout October

The Flick
Grab a bucket of popcorn and settle in for Annie Baker’s three-hour, Pulitzer-winning dramedy, The Flick. Baker’s super-size play focuses on a trio of bored, brainy millennials stuck in low-wage purgatory as ushers at a crumbling movie palace. As their day of drudgery unspools, the gifted American playwright deploys her naturalistic style to reveal their dreams and delusions. For this Toronto premiere, immersive-theatre specialists Outside the March team up with Crow’s Theatre to turn the latter’s Leslieville venue into a classic cinema.
In this Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece by Annie Baker (The AliensJohn), three ushers navigate life making $8.25/hour, as they attend to the last 35mm film projector in town. Hailed by The Guardian as “a love letter to the theatre”, The Flick is a hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.
After Outside the March’s explosive, Dora Award-winning production of Jerusalem at Streetcar Crowsnest, Outside the March and Crow’s Theatre join forces to transform the theatre and lobby into The Flick Cinema, for a must-see immersive event.
October 6 to 27, Streetcar Crowsnest.
