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.

New Season of Artists
At Luna Sole Restaurant

She signs her work "marilyn sara".

please call Marilyn at 613-834-9937 or email her at mcmarilynsara@gmail.com.
