If you have some spare time - Repeat from April 7th


Once again, the Montreal Mirror is doing their best of Montreal competition. As you might now, I take it very seriously. Zeke's has won it three years in a row. I very much would like to win it for a fourth time. The deadline is today at midnight.

If I can make some suggestions for your vote, assuming that you of course, do vote. Click on the picture above to do so. If you've already voted, apologies for the repeat, thanks if you voted for Zeke's Gallery and can I suggest that you go see Decalage at the Parisian Laundry instead.

Best political/social cause - L'Affaire Roadsworth
Best live venue - Here, duh!
Best gallery - Here, duh!
Best art exhibit - the choices from here would be the following. Phillip Bottenberg - Ocean of Intangibles, Toly Kouroumalis - Lucid Dreams in a Winter of Death, Jean-François Lacombe - Above, Below, Center & Ether. Although there are plenty of other exhibits that you should consider, too.
Best blog - This here one, duh!
Best neighbourhood - Mine or Saint Henri
Best building - Musee d'Art Contemporain or the Belgo Building
Best bartender - Yam at Casa Tapas
Best pickup spot - Art Galleries
Best play - the Anorak

For the record (and the out of towners) the runners up in the Best Art Gallery in Montreal category for the past three years have been.

In 2002, Musée des beaux-arts, arteVISTA [sadly now out-of-business], VAV Gallery, and Fashionlab [sadly now out-of-business]. And there was also a tempest in a teapot about the vote.

In 2003, Elle Corazon, Boutique Fly, Rad'a, VAV Gallery, Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery, Liane & Danny Taran Gallery, Galerie Noel Guyomarc'h Bijoux d'Art, Espace verre, and Centre Clark.

In 2004, VAV Gallery, Studio 303, Liane & Danny Taran Gallery, The entire Belgo building, Shayne Art, Boutique Fly, Rad'a, Galerie Noel Guyomarc'h Bijoux d'Art, and Centre Clark.

Thanks Tons!
