The Nook Salon – hosted by Sandra Dionisi


A salon is “a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host.

The point of our Nook Salons will be to surprise and delight, to probe and prod and to spill the dirt. How? Through an exhaustively entertaining series of conversations and presentations with and by some truly interesting people. Part Mike Douglas and part Gertrude Stein (look ‘em up) if you’re there, you will be edified.

On January 25th, the Nook Salon features an evening with the artist Maurice Vellekoop.

Maurice is best known for his beautiful line work, rich colours, luscious textures and exquisite rendering of beautiful boys, not to mention his marvelous storytelling a charming wit.

Maurice regards himself as a child of the TV Age. Growing up on a steady diet of supernatural sitcoms, variety shows, Japanese monster movies and Ross Hunter melodramas and a mother who created “bullet proof hair-dos” in the basement of the family’s suburban home. His father, an avid art-lover blasted the neighbourhood with opera records on Saturday afternoons.

We’ll discuss these influences and others, as well as his recently published graphic novel “Gloria Badcock” and what’s in the future for this unique and fascinating bon vivant.
