Union street at Main….on the bitter end of chinatown

While most teens are using their spring break to catch up on typical teen pursuits like playing under the dome, one has decided her time would be better spent curating a photography show of her peers to raise money for a childrens’ charity instead.

With "Mom, I’m Artsy!” 16 year old Emma Anderson-Pilon brings together 10 young photographers for a one night exhibition at Lucky Red this Friday night.

Though this is the first exhibition she has curated, Emma is no stranger to the art world. The daughter of celebrated illustrator/artist Mark Atomis Pilon, (who was also responsible for the seminal Moonbase Gallery during the early years of the decade), and lowbrow diva Holly-ruth Anderson, it would naturally follow that she become invoved in the art scene. She describes the show as follows:

Mom, I'm Artsy : Friday March 20th 7:30 pm at Lucky Red
Featuring Emma Anderson-Pilon, Michelle Hanley, Maya Kordic Halse, Anikah Jordan, Jesse Mcmillan, Evan Robertson, Emily Schira, Harley Slade, and Sadie Vadnais.

"Life in Vancouver as seen through the eyes of ten teen photographers all of whom love photography and want to get their things out in the open for people to see and hopefully enjoy.
All of the proceeds from the show will be going to a charity called Abetavu (Safe Haven). Carli Travers founded the charity to support six Ugandan children who she took off the streets to give food and shelter along with helping them re-connect with their families and tending to their medical needs which are very serious at this time."
