I have show opening at Bau-Xi Gallery’s new location 1384 Dufferin Street.
North west corner of Dufferin Street and Geary Avenue.

New Website

March 12th, 2022 Toronto

The new website is pretty much like the old website but it works. A few simple things about;

1. About – News will be updated and reflect anything relatively “newsworthy” that has happened to or is associated with Chris Shepherd. This will include news of the soon to happen or news of the recent past. Nothing in here will be conceptual or idea driven. There will be no “Fake News” and little-to-no opinion.

2. About – BioCV and Contact pages should be relatively straight forward and up to date at all times.

3. Work – This section contains most of the things the artist has printed, made or performed. There is nothing here that was not exhibited or produced and sold in some way. Well, that’s not 100% accurate. All the work you see here has been produced, not all of it has sold.

4. Sketchbook – This will become the theoretical, conceptual or WIP portion of the site. Here the artist plans on keeping a virtual sketchbook of ideas so you can follow along with their life and get a frightening glimpse into the workings of a neurotic artist’s mind. This might contain opinion, commentary or even swearing. Please don’t be offended. The plan is to weed out this section of the site frequently and only keep entries for ideas that might actually make it to execution some day. It  may contain pie-in-the-sky thoughts, but that’s the fun of it.
