Giovannina Colalillo and Barbara Spurll Won First Place at the CAPIC Double Vision Show!

CAPIC’s Double Vision is a unique exhibition where image creators are paired up by a random draw, to create a unique and creative portrait of each other.

Their art is titled Streaming. In collaboration, they shake their inverted heads revealing important aspects of themselves. These cascading elements symbolize them, as in the headset representing Giovannina’s love for talking as she draws and paints, and Alice in Wonderland representing Barbara’s love for theatre and storytelling. Linking them together is their common Chinese Zodiac sign, the Dragon.

The Gala opening and competitions took place on Tuesday, Feb. 24th, 2015, 6:30 – 10 pm, at the Arta Gallery in the Toronto’s trendy Distillery District.

Chuck Pyle for the Whisky Advocate

We love what Chuck Pyle conceptualizes and creates. He’s always on target and never falls short of delivering quality work.
One of his recent assignments was for an article in the Whisky Advocate titled ‘Reciprocity’ – a practice in the distillers world of trading blended stocks of spirits.

Collaborating with director John Thompson, Chuck was given the following parameters: “hands playing cards with whiskey barrels on the cards, and some sense of a distillery barrel in the background..now go run with it”.

Chuck carefully researched the subject, along with some product testing, and came up with the concept to change poker chips out for whiskey barrels. John agreed and the painting was completed using acrylic on board.
