HERB van der STAAY
at Luna Sole June - August 2, 2016

Inspired by the Colours and Space of the Canadian Landscape

Herb van der Staay draws his inspiration from the colours and space of the Canadian landscape. He is mainly a self-taught artist but studied under Ottawa artists Bruce Heggtveit and Robert Hyndman, and has attended workshops and painted with many fellow artists.

"I like to interpret what I see in nature and, in a way, abstract it into a pleasing painting." He finds painting en plein air is a constant learning process where "Nature teaches us how to see colour, light, shadows and shapes. It is a challenge to put feelings and impressions on canvas and to connect with the viewer."

To Herb, each painting becomes just a moment in time, the view changes constantly varying with the time of day and time of year.

Herb's work has received recognition in prizes, awards and honourable mentions over the years and his work has been on display in several local galleries.

His landscapes are now on display at Luna Sole Restaurant through the month of July.

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.

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
