The Love of Letters

A few weeks back, I got a call from Jeff Wheaton who said he was shooting a bit of an experimental short film for an art exhibit at Argyle Fine Art (1869 Upper Water Street) called The Love of Letters. We shot the film in one day and it’s now being shown. The exhibit actually started yesterday and will run until (and including) Monday. Check it out!


This show involved the community and was in the works many months ago, when we asked for the general public to send us letters. Selected letters were then given to 17 artists including painters, ceramic artists, a musician and even a filmmaker. Come see the final results and the letters that inspired it all. Participating artists include: Mike Holmes, Ryan MacGrath, Ruth Marsh, Peter Kirby, Audrey Nichols, Pamela Marie Pierce , Peter Diamond, Nick Brunt, Teresa Bergen, Trevor Van den Eiynden, Gordon MacDonald, Susan Malmstrom, Stephen Gillis, Brian Porter, Jeff Wheaton, Crystal Ross and Brandt Eisner.

An example of one of the works included is an illustration by local cartoonist Mike Holmes


I’m not sure if Wheaton plans on releasing the film online or not, so go see it!
