I meant to blog about this yesterday but I kind of got off track. I went out for breakfast with a friend of mine and we stopped by the NoMinimo art gallery. It’s a pretty cool gallery– I just found out on Thursday that they have open portfolio sessions where you can just walk in and share your work with other artists there. I found out a little too late though since they only have these sessions once per month (I believe) and the next scheduled session is right when my classes start. Their goal is to showcase the work of emerging artists and help them get their name out there both locally and internationally. I took the following pictures outside the gallery.
After touring the gallery and speaking to the curator for a bit (we got invited to an art conference on Monday too!), my friend and I set off for some breakfast. We were both starved. He decided we should go to Tinta Cafe, which is basically a cafe and a bookstore as well. I love the concept and the ambiance of the place. It’s wonderful!
What better way to start the day than having coffee and waffles for breakfast? I also got to talk about artsy-fartsy stuff, literature, and careers with my friend, which is always a plus. I do enjoy having cultured conversations, I don’t get to do that every single day so I cherish every moment of it when I get the chance to.
So yummy! They had these awesome place-mats too. I’m saying awesome because they were mostly blank and could doodle on them like the little girl that I am hahaha~
