"Spring Melt" Art Exhibition

Gwen Cowan "Peared" Up

at Luna Sole April and May

Pears are the featured subject for Arteast member Gwen Cowan in her exhibition at Luna Sole Restaurant.

A life-long interest in art was first fostered in her upbringing, then in her education and on into her work life. For many years, Gwen worked in social services working with children of all ages. "My artistic training helped me a great deal in terms of what I could offer the youth I worked with," she explains. She moved on from social work to picture framing then returned to helping school children develop their artistic interest and abilities.

Now she is taking part in activities that focus on the art-health connection, teaching cartooning to elementary school children and looking for other teaching opportunities while also creating new works in what she describes as "stylized realism". "Usually my message is peaceful and my intention is to evoke good feelings for the viewer," says Gwen. "I love to draw and paint and probably always will."

The exhibition continues at Luna Sole to May 10

Luna Sole is located in the mall at Jeanne d'Arc Boulevard and Laverendrye Drive (opposite the Bob McQuarrie Centre) and is open every day for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and drinks.

Josie De Meo exhibition of oil paintings
"Pure White and Red"
April 2nd to May 28th 2016

Mother Nature gives us beautiful flowers such as Daisies, Magnolia, Iris, Orchids.. The color white heals the body, mind and spirit at all levels. White means kindness. It stands for wholeness and completion. Represents openness, honesty and truth. The red ties it all in with the love of what nature brings us.

Josie loves what is out of the ordinary, doing new techniques, medium and subjects. Thinking outside the box gets her creative juices going. She balances her days with family life, as Arteast Past President, promoting her art and creating in her studio. She loves challenges and challenges herself every day.

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.

Library hours are: Monday to Thursday: 10 - 8:30, Friday: 1:00 - 6:00, Saturday: 10:00- 5:00, Sunday: closed

Joyce Buckley
exhibition of paintings

Jan 11th to April 29th 2016
Hours: Monday: 1-5, Tuesday to Thursday: 9-5 , Friday: 9-12

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

"Canada's North - Capturing A Place In Time" looks at Canada's northern landscapes with their vast rolling skies,majestic mountains and massive bodies of water. Joyce depicts nature's own abstract sculptures, each one with unique beauty, changing and evolving with light.

Her choice of medium is oil. Employing the methods and methodologies of her predecessors, to create depth and luminosity drawing the viewer into the calm and deafening quiet of what is Canada's true north, - simplified and pared-down yet with an aura of grandeur and water seemingly stretching to infinity.
