“I want people to get in here and say: Is this an art gallery or what is this?” said Douglas Coupland of the Roots pop-up store last night. The cocktail party was pretty much like any gallery opening. I saw many of the faces I usually see at art events around town, there were art and colours everywhere and wine was served ( Unoaked Chardonay from No99 Wayne Gretzky Estates). Kris Krug was my ‘plus one’ for the evening and took a great shot of me against a background of colourful targets.
The store will be open through the 28th – “or longer” added Laura Simpson, PR of the brand.
With that I am done with local celebrities I wanted to meet in person. The list was Arthur Erickson (who I had the luck to meet before he passed), David Suzuki, Mayor Gregor Robertson and Douglas Coupland.
