Arteast artists have generously donated a varied and charming collection of their work
for the Children's Wish Foundation fundraiser on December 1 at the Ottawa Rideau-Carleton

with proceeds going to make children's wishes come true.
Speaking on behalf of the artists, Arteast president, Josie DeMeo, said "This is a wonderful
opportunity for our members to show what incredible art is being produced and to support
this worthy cause. We hope that guests will show their support for both the Foundation and
local artists by bidding generously for the different pieces."

Maureen Rooney Mitchell exhibition of oil paintings
Blackburn Hamlet Library in conjunction with Arteast is proud to present
of oil paintings by Maureen Rooney Mitchell.
This solo show, "Medley", runs from November 29th to February 1st and offers a glimpse
into the artist's creative process, a creativity often triggered by an amusing turn of
phrase or an unspoken emotion in a glance or gesture. Her muse of whimsy is depicted in 'Too Close'
while another muse of winsomeness may be seen in "Cartoon Watching". The exhibition favours
but does not limit itself to portraiture.
Maureen Rooney Mitchell was classically trained at Duncan of Jordanstone College of
Art, University of Dundee, Scotland. She was immersed in all disciplines but her
especial passions came to be drawing, painting and sculpture. She studied full time
for five years and graduated with a Degree in Fine Art and a further Post graduate
in Drawing and Painting.
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
Hours: Monday to Thursday: 10 - 8:30, Friday: 1:00 - 6:00, Saturday: 10:00- 5:00, Sunday: closed.
