Check out some smart art

NOW Magazine - Fringe - - Fringe preview 25 things you can’t miss -

The Fringe isn’t just about cre­ativ­ity in the per­form­ing arts.

If you’re around the Fringe Club in the evening – and who isn’t at some point dur­ing the fes­ti­val? – check out the 16 visual artists pre­sent­ing their work at a popup mar­ket.

Among those tak­ing part are re­turn­ing Con­trol Over Des­tiny jew­ellery de­sign­ers Ja­son Thomas Chellew and Re­becca Schofield, who do­nate part of their pro­ceeds back to the Fringe; Ash­ley Ann Karas’s Freak Bou­tique, with items in­spired by Ja­panese street fash­ion, retro 80s kitsch and drag queens; and Home Sweet Home (pic­tured), He­len Kot­so­nis’s in­stal­la­tion of colour­ful house-shaped lanterns il­lu­mi­nated by fairy lights.

There is some per­for­mance art (by Aus­tralian troupe The NakedMe Show) and au­di­ence par­tic­i­pa­tion ( So­cially Ac­cept­able Half-Truths).

Pur­chase or sim­ply ad­mire… there’s a lot on dis­play. From July 3 at Hon­est Ed’s (581 Bloor).
