Luna Sole

October 20 to December 1
Photography by Jane Cass

Originally a Nova Scotia native, Jane now calls Ottawa home. A self-taught, award winning, nature and landscape photographer, she enjoys and embraces the diversely rich vistas primarily of eastern Ontario.

Using what could be called Digital Impressionism, through the use of light, patterns and texture she evokes an emotional connection between the viewer and her work. Whether it's capturing the aura of serenity of a centuries old farm, local wildlife, the cloaked secrets of a morning mist, or the history laden stones of bridges and abandoned houses, Jane has often wandered down roads less traveled.

Jane has pursued her photography full time since 2012. She now spends at least three days a week traveling the dirt roads and back country of rural Ontario connecting with nature, capturing the scenery and vanishing landscapes - doing what she loves.

You can see what happens when you visit Luna Sole which is located in the mall at Jeanne d'Arc Boulevard and Youville Drive. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, or dinner or just a light snack anytime.

Jessie Parker's Photo-based digital art image

St-Laurent-Library in conjunction with Arteast is proud to present an exhibition of photo based digital art works by Jessie Parker. This solo show is titled 'Hidden in Plain Sight' and runs from Oct 2, 2015 to January 8, 2016

Jessie Parker's photographic images operate on both the physical and metaphorical levels pushing the envelope technically and visually. She goes beyond the "traditional" depiction of subjects, playing with what is real and what seems real but isn't, the visionary and the transformative, re-presenting the world and inviting us to see otherwise. In these photo-based digital works she uses digital "paint" with a special "pen" used like a brush, applying digital "paint" stroke by stroke to the image in a technique which allows her to be inventive, interpretive and intuitive.

Maritime born and schooled, Jessie received her B.Ed and BFA from Mount Allison U., under Alex Colville, 1965. She has lived in Ottawa since 1979 and has shown extensively in Maritimes, Ontario, USA. She stock photos have been published worldwide since 1987. Her talks at the national Gallery pulled in record crowds in the '90s. Her recent eBooks for Visual Artists and new paperback are published by Amazon. She is a featured speaker at ArtSchoolFair 2015.

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,
505 Côté Street, Ottawa K1K 0Z8
Hours: Monday to Thursday: 10 - 8:30, Friday: 1:00 - 6:00,
Saturday: 10:00- 5:00, Sunday: closed.
