Karen Romanchuk for The Travelling Dress Project
Fri, Feb 14
Mortar & Brick - Lethbridge


Time: 7 p.m.

Cover: none

The Travelling Dress project involves one dress and 10 different local photographers. Each photographer has the dress for 2 weeks to photograph the dress how they envision. The 10 different images will be displayed at an Art Exhibition called "The Red Dress Collective".
t involves one dress, which each photographer will have for 2 weeks, to be photographed with no particular theme, other than to produce the final art piece. You are free to use photoshop and any editing you like on your image, as long as the final piece includes our dress in some way. We encourage creativity in your shoot, your editing and your presentation (framing) to produce an image that is worthy of hanging in an art gallery.
Why are we doing this? Because we believe photography is an art form and we want a way to work together to create an amazing exhibition of some of the best photography artists in Lethbridge. It started as a way for us to have a project to work on, to push ourselves to learn and to create. This is not a contest, and you are free to enlist any help you would like when creating this piece. You can also choose your own model, but models can only work for one photographer for this project. Whether you pay your model, or use TFP is up to you. Creative control remains with the photographer.


Karen Romanchuk

Karen has added some amazing credentials to her resume throughout her career including opening slots for Willie P. Bennett, Gaye Delorme, Katherine Wheatley, Wendell Ferguson (7 time CCMA guitar player of the year, who also graces her new cd "Dance"), Leeroy Stagger, The Good Lovelies (Juno award winners)and Jill Barber just to name a few.

Karen was the 4th member of Sirens of Song in a Lethbridge, Alberta show which included Juno award winners Melanie Doane, Lynn Miles and critically acclaimed singer/songwriter, Catherine MacLellan.

Karen was chosen as one of only 60 people, businesses, etc. to represent Lethbridge in the visit Lethbridge campaign for 2011. She appeared in brochures, ads and billboards throughout Alberta and BC to promo the city.

Karen would also like to praise her vocal coach, Brian Farrell, who has worked with the likes of Paul Brandt and Kalan Porter. Brian has been a very positive influence to her career.

Karen is a singer/songwriter that you do not want to miss!

Here's some press and a few quotes to leave you with about Karen as a performer and thoughts about her first 2 CD's (Dance 2011 and Shine 2009)....

"Karen Romanchuk wraps a rich vocal sound that captures the depth of the story inside her songs. An incredibly honest songwriter who writes with her own mesmerizing melodic and lyric artistic signature." ... Brian Farrell, Artistic Mentor.

"You deserve to be here. You are a great singer/songwriter!" Quote to Karen from Juno award winner Lynn Miles during their live performance. (Sirens of Song Concert)

"Karen is a hidden gem" ... Mike Spencer, Geomatic Attic, Lethbridge, AB. (Jill Barber Concert, opening remarks)

"Your best work yet!"... Mark Campbell (Global Television).

"Romanchuk has a definite Lucinda Williams tinge to her world wearied voice. Her melodies are very memorable especially Blue, Blue, Heart. While dance isn't the first thing you think about when hearing Karen Romanchuk's latest CD, good music is. It is an enjoyable and upbeat listen."... Richard Amery (L.A. Beat).

"A cross between Waylon Jennings, Steve Earle and Lucinda Williams. She writes strong, rich folk and roots. Her material was formed as if it were at the crossroads between Country Rock, the famous Texas Outlaw and rootsy folk scene"...Ctrl. Alt. Country, Belgium.
