Artist Sara Guindon on her new show, Barkley Towers

Peek into the partially real, partially imagined world of Barkley Towers at artist Sara Guindon's new show that opens Saturday night. The artist creates beautiful, cartoon-like depictions of characters in everyday situations that all revolve around an apartment complex she lived in when she was growing up in Ontario.

The show opens with a reception that runs from 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday, September 8 at Groundswell Gallery. In advance of that, we spoke with Guindon about Barkley Towers and her penchant for portraying the ordinary in extraordinary ways.
