  • Shatner Show, The



    From his iconic Captain James T. Kirk through the steely resolve ofTJ Hooker, the wisdom of Walter H Bascom, the irreverence of Denny Craneor the seemingly hundreds of smaller roles that have filled his career(one of our personal favorites being the Commander Buck Murdock inAirplane 2), William Shatner has shown an uncanny ability to alternately(and sometimes simultaneously) embrace and transcend thosepreconceptions about him. Perhaps this is nowhere exhibited better thanon his recent musical album with Ben Folds: speaking (not singing, ofcourse) with open candor at times about his fortunes and failings, itbecomes clear that the person who has played these characters has somuch more to say than the characters themselves. Now in his 76th year,  he continues to produce with a voracity and enthusiasm unrivaled by hispeers. Whether it s a comedic or dramatic role, a gameshow, voice-workfor a documentary or animated program, or even a seemingly lowlybreakfast cereal commercial, each thing he touches is elevated to aplane that s all his own.

    With playful reverence to this entrancing icon and fascinatingindividual, UPPERCASE gallery has created The Shatner Show: anexhibition and book of artwork depicting William Shatner, featuring thework of 76 artists and illustrators from Canada and the US. Mr. Shatnerhas endorsed the project and provided the following statement:


    "Every artist has their muse. Leonardo was inspired by the ceiling inthe great chapel. Michelangelo found his art in the Italian marble. Whoam I to stand in the way of all these fine artists and artisans whowant to use my lumpy, aging face for inspiration? Some creators love agreat sunset; some have in mind my bloodshot eyes. Nevertheless, out ofawe, amusement, or pity, you should come and see this unique show."

In 2010, Lisa Congdon embarked on a year-long project: a daily documentation through photos and the occasional drawing of arrangements from her curious collections. “Most of the collections are real and exist in my home or studio; those I will photograph. Some are imagined; those I will draw or (occasionally) paint.” Housed in a special collector’s tin, the packaging encourages the reader to store their own prized collections within. The brick-like book features one collection per page with captions, an essay by the artist and a foreword written by Martha Stewart Living Collections Editor, Fritz Karch. 448 pages, 7.75" x 5.125" x 1.5" Learn More

  • Yarn Thread String: Up Close with Fibre


    So much of what we make is created by using various fibres. Knitting, crochet, weaving, sewing, embroidery, rug-making, macramé and many more crafts are made possible with yarn, thread and string. 

    This book gets up close and personal with fibre, telling the stories and processes from venerated traditional thread companies to individual artisans raising sheep to make their own wool. We'll look at natural fibres and how they are made, and how design plays a part in the visual appeal of fibre brands. We'll also explore innovative fibres that repurpose and recycle our valuable resources. 

    Yarn-Thread-String will also highlight artists, craftspeople and creative entrepreneurs who use these fibres in unique and inspiring ways. Through this book, you'll gain a new and exciting perspective on what fibre is—and how we can use it to express our individuality, creativity and humanity.
