Special Exhibition for Canada's 150/Exposition spéciale pour le 150e du Canada - Survey for Arteast Members May 2017/Sondage auprès des membres Arteast, Mai 2017 - Des Fleurs Pour le Plaisir at Blackburn Hamlet Library - Open Studio Time - Call for Art - Members’ Announcements - AOE Announcements - Sponsors’ Announcements


1. Special Exhibition for Canada's 150 - Exposition spéciale pour le 150e du Canada

Arteast joins in Canada 150 celebrations
Arteast is proud to present a special exhibition in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday. Using the Ottawa 150 logo design of a series of triangles arranged in the shape of the iconic maple leaf, thirty artists created paintings that represent Canada’s diversity in an explosion of colour and images. Artists used different mediums, such as acrylic, oil, watercolour, mixed media, encaustic, and photography to realize an amazing artwork. This giant maple leaf mosaic, 8 ft. by 8 ft., will be the dramatic focal point of the Canada Naturally/le Canada tout Naturellement exhibition. This special exhibition is part of the Ottawa-wide, multi-venue series of shows celebrating Canada's sesquicentennial through landscape that will be taking place in the month of July. This venue features thirteen landscapes by Arteast members which capture aspects of the diversity and range of our natural wonders.
The opening reception for Canada Naturally/le Canada tout Naturellement will take place on Sunday, May 28, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on the ground floor of the Shenkman Arts Centre, 245 Centrum Boulevard, Orleans. The public is invited and admission is free.

Arteast se joint aux célébrations du 1503e anniversaire du Canada
Arteast est fière de présenter une exposition toute spéciale pour célébrer le 150ème Anniversaire du Canada. En s’inspirant du logo Ottawa 150, plusieurs pièces de bois triangulaires ont été placées pour former l’iconique feuille d’érable. Trente artistes ont participé individuellement à représenter la grande diversité du Canada dans une explosion de couleurs et d’images. Les artistes ont utilisé différents médiums tels que l’acrylique, l’huile, l’aquarelle, les techniques mixtes, l’encaustique et la photographie pour réaliser cette grandiose œuvre. Cette mosaïque en feuille d’érable sera le point central de l’exposition Canada Naturally/ le Canada tout Naturellement. Elle sera accompagnée par treize autres paysages inspirés par les membres d’Arteast.
Cette exposition fait partie d’une série d’expositions qui auront lieu au cours du mois de juillet dans la grande ville d’Ottawa pour célébrer le sesquicentenaire du Canada à travers des paysages canadiens réalisés par des artistes locaux.
Le public est invité au vernissage de l’exposition Canada Naturally/ le Canada tout Naturellement présenté par les membres d’Arteast. La réception aura lieu le dimanche 28 mai 2017, de 13h à 15h au niveau 1 du Centre des Arts Shenkman, 245 Boulevard Centrum, à Orléans.

Changing the Exhibition at North Gloucester Library - AOE Announcements - Sponsors’ Announcements


1. Changing the Exhibition at North Gloucester Library

On TUESDAY, MAY 9, 2017

Please retrieve the works that have been hanging for the past two months and/or bring in new paintings (or other two dimensional art) for the North Gloucester Library, 2036 Ogilvie Road, Ottawa, K1J 7N8.

The changeover is between 10:30 a.m. and 11:30.a.m.

These new pieces will be hung for two months.
The next change-over will be on TUESDAY, JULY 11, 2017


If you are interested in exhibiting, an advance email, on or before FRIDAY, MAY 5, to Christine Gendron, christinegendron@sympatico.ca, indicating the number of works and their sizes, would be helpful. Or, just show up at the date, but risk being turned away.
Please be prepared to record your paintings with: Title, Medium, Size, and Price along with your name, phone number and e-mail. You can bring up to 3 paintings although, depending on the total number received, not all may be accepted. North Gloucester Library can accommodate 20 paintings. Paintings must be ready for hanging, with appropriate framing and hardware to Arteast standards. Those who are bringing in a painting for the first time this year must sign an Arteast contract form. Blank contracts will be available at the library.
Fifteen percent (15%) of any sale is payable to Arteast for its operational budget.

When someone shows an interest in purchasing a piece, they will be advised to contact you directly to make the transaction. We prefer to leave all works hanging for the duration of each exhibition. If you must remove your work prior to the next change-over, please notify the appropriate coordinator, so the Librarian can be advised and take note of the authorized removal. Neither the Library nor Arteast takes responsibility for the security of works exhibited but reasonable care is taken to ensure their security. Remember that these are very public areas that put your work and name before the public. Do your part to encourage people to visit the North Gloucester, Orleans, Blackburn Hamlet, and St. Laurent Library branches where Arteast members exhibit on a continuing basis.

We look forward to seeing exhibitors on TUESDAY, MAY 9, 2017.
