ITEM #10
Title: Dark Night Under Bright Lights
Artist: Natalie Condrashoff
Materials: Acrylic on Canvas; Size 16" x 12"
Bio: Natalie has worked with the Emerging Artist show as the Front of House Manager since 2007 and is a big fan of the theatre. Even though she is not an actor by trade she can be often convinced to "grace" the stage with her presence for improv or "24 hour" shows. "Dark Night Bright Lights" contrasts the hustle and bustle of the cars and lights on the streets compared to the cement buildings and darkening sky. It is like the roads are the life-force of the city, flowing like a river amongst stone.

ITEM #11
Title: The Quacky Bard
Artist: Natalie Condrashoff
Materials: Acrylic on Canvas;
Size 12" x 16"
Bio: Natalie has worked with the Emerging Artist show as the Front of House Manager since 2007 and is a big fan of the theatre. Even though she is not an actor by trade she can be often convinced to "grace" the stage with her presence for improv or "24 hour" shows.
Otherwise she lives every little girl's dream working in a shiny office with a window and a desk in Burnaby by day and practicing Kung Fu by night. "The Quacky Bard" is inspired by an old comic strip called "Chick and Pig" she used to write in her lectures from 2001 - 2006 at UVIC. The chick had a penchant for dressing up in elaborate costumes despite a very serious demeanour and it seemed appropriate that he would only want to dress up as the great Bard to honour the theatre.
STARTING BID: $20
