A notification when a new issue is released is communicated via the weekly Arteast Digest. Posting of the Web version may be viewed in full dazzling colour, at least two weeks before the print version (black and white) is delivered by Canada Post.

3. Blackburn Hamlet Library

Blackburn Hamlet Library in conjunction with Arteast is proud to present an exhibition
of encaustic artworks by Marie Leger. This solo show is titled Spirit of the hinterland
and runs from May 30th to July 25th .

Marie Leger works in encaustics, which is basically, melted pigmented beeswax painted on a wood surface then fused using a torch or heat gun. She manipulates the wax through scraping, re-melting, drawing, painting and embedding found objects. This combination of painting and dimensional layering of wax and objects leads to rich textures and a luminous depth. 

Marie Leger finds the unexpected textures and results of working with encaustics, keep the painting process exciting and fresh and reveal an unpredictable beauty to be found in imperfection.

This is a unique opportunity for the public to enjoy, encourage and support artists
in their local community as well as the Blackburn Hamlet Library.

Location: Blackburn Hamlet branch of the Ottawa Public Library, 199 Glenpark, Ottawa K1B 5B8
Hours: Monday to Thursday: 10 - 8:30, Friday: 1:00 - 6:00, Saturday: 10:00- 5:00, Sunday: closed.



4. Members Announcements

Saturday  May 23, Workshop: Painting, Text, and  Photo, Integration: This 1-day workshop is an introduction to the art of integrating text and photographs into artworks. Students will have fun experimenting with photo transfers, collage, palette knife and brush techniques while working on a project of their choice for maximum self-expression. Presented by Mary Ann Varley.
https://artottawa.ca/register-for-a-class/?campus=Orleans&focus=General+Interest&semester=Spring&category=Short+Courses+%26+Workshops




Arteast artist Maureen Rooney Mitchell presents an exhibition of paintings
at The Legal Information Centre of Ottawa, Suite 1400, 85 Albert St, Ottawa.

In this exhibit Maureen has included something that represents each of her muses from the whimsy of ‘Too Close’ to the winsomeness of “Cartoon Watching”.  Maureen’s  artwork is not confined to one subject matter, and when she tackles an artwork it usually fits one of several moulds: it  has personal meaning, or,  there is something whimsical that has tickled her funny bone that she wishes to pursue, or, there is a subject that just cries out to be explored, and sometimes, a pretty picture is just a pretty picture !

The exhibition runs from May 1st  to August 31st .
Hours: Monday: 1-5,  Tuesday to Thursday: 9-5 , Friday: 9-12.

Le français suit...

Wet and Wild: towards Abstraction
A two day workshop in English, presented by Shirley Mancino

Shirley Mancino is renowned for her courageous exploration of mixed media and experimental techniques. “My soul ‘sings’ when I work loosely and abstractly. I love the ethereal quality that happens when I superimpose a figure on top of an underpainting, allowing the lower levels to shine through. This creates magic. A sought-after art instructor, juror and critic, she has won numerous prestigious awards for her art. Shirley delivers art workshops and presentations in her studio and throughout North America.  

Saturday and Sunday May 23 & 24 2015
Queenswood Heights Community Centre

Time: Saturday 9:00 am to 4:00pm

Program includes
Awaken your creative spirit and playful nature. White paper syndrome is common to artists at all levels. Not here! Learn to use liquid acrylics and collage elements as a vehicle for bold and loose self-expression. This exciting workshop helps both new and developing artists break free to explore new directions in acrylics, mediums and collage. By pouring, texturizing, layering, and pasting you will create stunning abstractions that you can then reincarnate into gorgeous representational works. You will learn how to effectively use the often confusing array of acrylic mediums and grounds. You will create your own stamps, templates and learn easy to use photo transfer processes. You will resurrect your failed watercolours using glazing, gesso and collage. Composition and design are an integral part of the session. The workshop includes helpful personal coaching, demonstrations and constructive group discussion.

Relax, play, and reconnect with your joyful creative


We need 17 people to run this workshop.

Fletcher Wildlife Garden

Native Plant Sale

Saturday June 6 from 9:30am to 12:30pm

Visit the Fletcher Wildlife Garden for their Annual Native Plant Sale! Hundreds of beautiful, local wildflowers grow in the Ottawa area. These native plants attract and support local wildlife, including pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and other beneficial insects. Loss of natural spaces has resulted in the decline of many species. FWG encourages growing native plants so that pollinators and other wildlife can find shelter and food. Their volunteers can advise about which plants suit your garden. A wide variety of native plants creates a garden that flowers throughout the summer and whose ecological balance makes herbicides, pesticides, and chemical fertilizers unnecessary.

Come and visit the demonstration backyard garden, pick up free plant lists and "how-to" info on gardening, and talk to the experts. The sale is located at FWG building on the east side of Prince of Wales Drive, just south of the Arboretum.

4. Members Announcements

Artist couple Jessie Parker, Robert Arnold share “Mediterranean Muse” at the Atrium Gallery, Ben Franklin Place, Nepean, May 22 to June 24, 2015. The Mediterranean acts as a Muse to them in different ways, inspiring this collection of some of their favourite Mediterranean images. Two people very close, both experiencing the same things, seeing the same places, yet reacting in different ways, with results that are very individual. Both Jessie Parker and Robert Arnold are established artists known for their innovative use of cutting edge digital art media.
