Long-time curator, gallery director, writer and educator, Kitty Scott brings a maven's insight into the work of this acclaimed Canadian artist.

MUSIC | Newer Than Used Trio
"Wine, Women and Song" is a cliche that needs updating, as waffles are now a vital part of that celebratory mix. Uber-hip watering hole and music venue, The Starving Artist, has built a very engaging menu around this Belgian delicacy. Tonight's musical festivities come in the form of a trio made up of three seasoned players: Andrew Frost on guitar, Wes Neal on bass, and Paul Fitterer on drums. Promises to be tasty on every level. The Starving Artist (534 Lansdowne Ave.) 8:30pm FREE

ART | International Lecture Series - Pae White
Los Angeles artist Pae White is best described as a multimedia artist. She is known for her innovative and transformative use of 'found materials', such as the creation of tapestries depicting huge plumes of smoke made from cotton, or creating a waterfall from hanging paper "orbs" from a gallery ceiling. White's fittingly titled Material Mutters, a survey exhibition, is now showing at The Power Plant gallery and this lecture will find her discussing her career and methods, giving a unique behind-the-scenes view of this artist's practice.

MUSIC | Iguana Recording Presents The Best In Toronto Music
In an age when recording studios are a risky venture, it is vitally important to connect with your potential clients at "street level". For this reason, it is commendable that North Toronto SSL room. Iguana Recording is hosting a showcase featuring locals Ben Atom, Dinosaur Dinosaur, Ten Ken, She King, and Courage My Love. The Hideout (484 Queen St. W) 7PM $5
