Kerstin Peters - Exhibition of Landscape Paintings
"Beauty in Your Neighbourhood"
May 28th to July 23th 2016

Blackburn Hamlet Library, in conjunction with Arteast, is proud to present an exhibition of landscape paintings by Kerstin Peters. This solo show is titled "Beauty in Your Neighbourhood" and runs from May 28 to July 23, 2016. In this exhibition, Kerstin Peters demonstrates that you do not have to travel far to see the beauty in nature. She sees the "neighbourhood" not necessarily defined as only a local spot, but as a metaphor for the beauty that is all around us.

Kerstin Peters is part of several plein air painting groups, and many of her paintings are from outings to places in Ontario and Quebec. These trips, as well as paint-outs in the Ottawa area, were her inspiration for this exhibition. As most of her plein air paintings are smaller, the majority of the paintings exhibited were created in her studio.

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.

This exhibition encourages you to pay attention and look around you. You will find that your neighbourhood has lots of beautiful spots to offer.

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

Christine Blais: The Eyes Have It

On display at the Luna Sole restaurant for May and June

is Christine Blais, a multidisciplinary artist, with an MA in Film Studies from Carleton University. She has presented works in encaustic that are based on photographs of heads, especially the eyes of the subjects.

She says that her background in photography and her affinity for sketching have played fundamental roles in shaping her vision with the encaustic medium. "The images in these works aim to demonstrate the self as deconstructed and fragmented by technology. By using digital photography, I accentuate the role of technology in the breakdown that occurs when our focus is placed on observing other people's lives through social media instead of experiencing our current reality."

L'artiste maintenant à la Resto Luna Sole est Christine Blais, une artiste multidisciplinaire qui tient sa maitrise en Film à Carleton University. Elle present des travaux en encaustique des photographs de surtout les yeux des subjets.

Elle dit que son expérience dans la photographie et son affinité pour le dessin ont joué un role fundamental dans l'élaboration de sa vision avec le milieu encaustique. "Les images de ces œuvres visent a d'émontrer l'auto comme d'éconstruit et fragmenté par la technologie. En utilisant la photographie numérique, j'accentue le rôle de la technologie dans la repartition qui se produit lorsque notre accent est mis sur l'observation de la vie des autres au travers des medias sociaux, au lieu d 'expérience de notre réalité actuelle."

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.
