exhibition of paintings

Blackburn Hamlet Library in conjunction with Arteast is proud to present an exhibition of paintings by ARLETTE FRANCIÈRE.
This solo show is titled SKYSCAPE BLUES and runs from Jan 31 to Apr 4th. /p>

Arlette has always been attracted to landscape painting, although topography is not a main concern. Impelled by an inner compulsion, Arlette lets strong colours, bold shapes and rhythms guide her. In the process, her paintings become inner landscapes that express states of mind and emotion, instead of reproducing an external landscape. Skies feature prominently in her landscapes; she tries to capture the cosmic vastness through which our planet Earth spins us.
For this exhibition, she has selected skies, whose rhythms and varied shades of blue evoke very distinct moods.

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.
