4. Judy Hollinger - Exhibition of Paintings

St-Laurent Library, in conjunction with Arteast, is proud to present an exhibition of paintings by Perth artist Judy Hollinger. This solo show is titled Back and Forth and runs from September 29 to January 5, 2018.

In her art practice, Judy is drawn to the exploration of opposites - light versus dark, warm versus cool, complementary versus similar colours, defined lines versus lost edges. She works between order and chaos, abstraction and realism. Her current collection, Back and Forth, reflects this. Close ups of flowers and plants allow her to use realism in the foreground with elements of abstraction in the background. Judy works primarily in acrylics.

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

Location: St-Laurent branch of the Ottawa Public Library, 515 Côté Street , Ottawa K1K 0Z8
Hours: Monday to Thursday: 10 - 8:30, Friday: 1:00 - 6:00, Saturday: 10:00- 5:00, Sunday: closed
