"Plein Air Here and There"/ "Le plein air: ici et là!"
with / avec Robert Murrell

Ever wonder how to oil paint in your car? OR Bring your paints overseas?

Bob will give a talk about painting en plein air: the materials, equipment, supplies and safety considerations when painting outdoors under various conditions, locally and when traveling.

Robert's art education has been self-directed. He credits his knowledge of art to many sources including attending workshops and classes, studying books on technique, studying firsthand the works of the masters in museums and, most significantly, through practice, experimentation, and the sharing of experiences, wisdom and techniques with artist friends. Robert paints mostly with oils, but also uses acrylics and watercolours. His current focus is plein air landscape painting. He is becoming increasingly interested in the abstracted landscape.

Robert is currently past-president of the Ottawa Art Association, a member of the East Central Ontario Art Association and Arteast. His works can be seen in the Ottawa Little Theatre, Kevin Dodds Gallery and Studio, at his studio by appointment at 5470 Canotek road, unit 30 (upstairs) and at various shows and exhibitions.

Parlons de peindre en plein air : peindre sous différentes conditions de météo demande de considérer le matériel, l'équipement, les accessoires et les articles de secours utiles.

Robert a débuté son éducation artistique en autodidacte. Ses connaissances en art proviennent de plusieurs sources : ateliers, livres techniques, études des maîtres dans les musées et surtout par la pratique, le partage d'expériences et de techniques avec des amis artistes. Il peint à l'huile, à l'acrylique et à l'aquarelle. Il est concerné par la peinture du paysage pris sur le vif. Il s'intéresse de plus en plus à la peinture abstraite du paysage.

Robert est président de l'Ottawa Art Association, membre de East Central Ontario Art Association et Arteast. Ses tableaux se retrouvent à l'Ottawa Little Theatre, la Galerie Outaouais, et ( sur rendez-vous) à son studio : 5470 Canotek road, unit 30 ( 2e) et à différentes expositions.

Helen Rosseau exhibition of paintings

Blackburn Hamlet Library in conjunction with Arteast is proud to present an exhibition of paintings by Helen Rosseau. This solo show is titled "Joy of Ottawa" and runs from Aug 5th to October 4th. To Helen Rosseau art is a passion where scenery, people and events trigger concepts and ideas to explore. She has experimented with different media, and currently works in acrylics and photography, as well as dabbling in oils and pencil.
Enjoying how each piece works its magic and comes to life, is part of the satisfaction and frustration of an artist.
Some paintings have a life of their own and it is up to the artist to bring it forward.
Combining a joy of living in Ottawa with a passion for painting,
Helen has created a body of work centered on a few prominent features in the Ottawa area.

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.
