Arteast Exhibition - Members Announcements - Painting Workshop Program - AOE Announcements

1. Arteast Exhibition

Blackburn Hamlet Library in conjunction with Arteast is proud to present an exhibition
of drawings by Erika Farkas.

This solo show is titled Figurative Mix and runs from Apr 4th to May 30th.
This show draws from Erika’s extensive collection of figurative drawings mostly worked in her preferred medium of graphite and charcoal pencils. Her style is heavily influenced by a love of the human figure and her own emotions. Thus, the works range from hyper-realistic to surrealistic, depending on how Erika might feel at a given moment. Erika Farkas’ artistic goal is to express complex human emotions and concepts in the human form. Upon viewing her artwork it becomes obvious that she has met this objective.

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.

Arteast is asking for some very special help for one of our valued volunteers - Margaret Cape. As some of you may know, Margaret's mother has terminal cancer and may pass in the very near future. In preparing for this imminent event, Margaret and her family would like to have her mother's urn (a wooden box) painted on two sides in the traditional Norwegian Rosemaling style. Should any of you have this expertise and be willing to undertake this project right away or, if you know someone who is accomplished in this style of painting but who is not necessarily a member of Arteast, please contact Margaret at 613-841-0742. The Capes would be pleased to pay for this work. Your immediate consideration of this request is greatly appreciated. Our thoughts are with Margaret and her family.

Arteast demande une aide spéciale pour une dévouée bénévole – Margaret Cape. Comme certaines d’entre vous le savez, la mère de Margaret souffre d’un cancer en phase terminale. En préparation de ce départ imminent, Margaret et sa famille aimerait que l’urne en bois de sa mère soit peint de deux côtés dans le style traditionnel ‘Norwegian Rosemaling’. Parmi vous, y aurait-il une personne connaissant ce style et prête à faire le projet dès maintenant ou connaissez-vous une personne pouvant le faire même si la personne n’est pas membre d’Arteast. S.V.P. contactez Margaret au 613-841-0742. La famille paierait pour le travail. Votre réponse empressée pour cette demande serait bien appréciée. Nos pensées accompagnent Margaret et sa famille.


Digest: Important Announcement with regard to the Digest - Grow with Art/L’art en herbe - Arteast Exhibition - Members Announcements - AOE Announcements

1. Important Announcement with regard to the Digest

I am pleased to announce a very important development in Arteast e-mail communications that will soon take effect. The Digest announcements that Arteast delivers by e-mail have served us well in the past. Now Arteast is moving forward and is updating the way it provides you with the Digest. The organization also needs to make this change to ensure it conforms to Canada's new anti-spam legislation.

In the coming days, you will receive a message inviting you to subscribe to the Blogspot version of Digest and providing you with a link so that you may do so. The invitation will contain all instructions and a contact name for help, if you need it. There are a number of advantages to Blogspot, notably that members who subscribe to it will be able to unsubscribe at any time. For the first four weeks, Arteast will deliver the Digest by both e-mail and through Blogspot, allowing members time to subscribe. During this transition period, therefore, members who subscribe will receive duplicates of Digest. Then Arteast will cease completely to deliver Digest by e-mail. I strongly encourage you to subscribe to the Blogspot version of Digest to continue receiving notices about Arteast events and other visual arts news. If you do not subscribe, you will stop receiving the Digest four weeks after you receive the initial invitation.

Joyce Buckley
President Arteast

Stone Carving
Through my bears, I want people to see themselves strongly connected with life, family and nature"
Patrick Imai, Stone Sculptor

Patrick Imai will give a presentation on the methodology he uses in the creation of his carved stone bears. He will discuss the selection of stone, cutting and shaping stone, sanding and polishing stone, and finishing. As stone carving is a tactile experience, the presentation will be supported by samples of different stone in various stages of the process and the tools used.

If there is time at the end of the presentation there will be an opportunity to experience stone carving. Wear clothing which can get dusty.

Sculpture sur pierre
"Par mes ours, je vois des gens profondément attachés à la vie, famille et nature’’
Patrick Imai, Stone Sculptor
Patrick Imai fera une présentation de sa méthode de création de la sculpture de l’ours. Il parlera de la sélection de la pierre, coupe et forme de la pierre, sablage, platine de la pierre et finition. Parce que sculpter la pierre est une expérience tactile, il aura des exemples de différentes pierres, à différents stages du développement de la pièce avec des outils qu’il utilise.

S’il reste du temps, à la fin de la présentation, vous pourrez essayer ce médium. Mais portez des vêtements d’atelier.

Executive Director’s March 2015 message | Mot de la directrice générale – mars 2015
Spring is right around the corner and Ottawa’s new City Council has passed its first budget. We are proud to have a Mayor that recognizes and speaks out on the powerful social and economic benefits that accrue to cities with vibrant arts communities. Over the past month as part of the budget discussions, AOE Arts Council, along with other cultural service organizations, met with members of City Council and presented to two committees of Council concerned with arts community priorities.

As you know, we have just conducted a survey of the Ottawa arts community to identify their priority needs for the future as part of our organization’s strategic planning process. These priorities remain largely consistent with those developed by the City through extensive consultation with the community in 2012 and that were approved unanimously by City Council with the 2013-18 Renewed Action Plan for Arts, Heritage and Culture. We are now in Year-3 of this Plan and much has begun, especially key capital infrastructure for Arts Court and La Nouvelle Scène. However, much remains to be accomplished and we need to be sure that completion of the Plan remains among the Strategic Priorities of the term of this new Council. The celebrations in 2017 also offer a unique opportunity to implement some of the elements in the Plan related to promotion of the local arts scene.

What can you do to help move this agenda forward? Please contact your City Councillor to let them know that you wish to see completion of the City’s 6-year Action Plan for Arts, Heritage and Culture among the strategic priorities for the term of this new Council.

Our website has a copy of the Action Plan as well as the presentations that we made to the City Committees on these issues. Please feel free to refer to them.

Best wishes on your current creative endeavours and as always, please keep us informed of your events, ideas and concerns by reaching me at victoria@artsoe.ca or 613‐580‐2767, ext.4

Victoria Steele, Executive Director

Le printemps est à nos portes et le nouveau conseil municipal de la Ville d’Ottawa a adopté son premier budget. Nous sommes heureux de pouvoir compter sur un maire qui sache reconnaître et souligner les importants bénéfices socioéconomiques d’une ville lorsque celle-ci mise sur le dynamisme de sa communauté artistique. Depuis un mois, dans le cadre des échanges sur l’établissement du budget, les représentants du Conseil des arts AOE ainsi que d’autres organismes de services culturels ont rencontré les élus du conseil municipal en plus d’exposer les priorités de la communauté artistique devant deux comités du conseil.

Comme vous le savez, nous avons récemment mené un sondage auprès de la communauté artistique d’Ottawa dans le cadre de notre processus de planification stratégique, et ce, afin de cerner les besoins prioritaires pour l’avenir. Essentiellement, ces priorités sont dans le droit fil de celles établies par la Ville au terme des consultations élargies auprès de la collectivité en 2012, lesquelles ont par la suite été entérinées à l’unanimité par le conseil municipal dans son Plan d’action renouvelé pour les arts, le patrimoine et la culture à Ottawa (2013-2018). Nous voilà déjà à la troisième année de ce processus, et plusieurs initiatives sont déjà en cours, notamment la concrétisation des projets d’immobilisations culturelles associées à la Cour des arts et à La Nouvelle Scène. Toutefois, il reste encore beaucoup de pain sur la planche, et nous devrons nous assurer que la mise en œuvre de ce plan d’action figure encore et toujours parmi les priorités stratégiques tout au long du mandat de ce nouveau conseil municipal. Par ailleurs, les célébrations de 2017 représenteront une occasion unique de concrétiser certains volets de ce plan en vue de promouvoir les arts à l’échelle locale.

Quel sera votre rôle dans cette perspective? Nous vous invitons à communiquer avec votre conseiller municipal pour lui faire valoir que la concrétisation du plan d’action pour les arts, le patrimoine et la culture de la Ville, échelonné sur six ans, devra nécessairement figurer parmi les priorités stratégiques de ce nouveau conseil municipal.

Vous trouverez un exemplaire du plan d’action sur notre site Web, ainsi que les détails des présentations que nous avons faites auprès des comités de la Ville sur ces questions. N’hésitez pas à vous en servir.

Meilleurs vœux de succès dans vos projets artistiques. Comme toujours, n’hésitez pas à communiquer avec moi pour m’informer de vos activités ou me faire part de vos idées et commentaires, à l’adresse victoria@artsoe.ca ou au 613‐580‐2767, poste 4.

Victoria Steele, directrice générale

Please retrieve the works that have been hanging for the past two months and/or bring in new paintings (or other two dimensional art) for the North Gloucester Library, 2036 Ogilvie Road, Ottawa, K1J 7N8.
 The changeover is between 10:30 a.m. and 11:30.a.m.

These new pieces will be hung for two months.
The next change-over will be on Tuesday, MAY 12, 2015. 

If you are interested in exhibiting, an advance email, on or before Wednesday, March 5, 2015, to Christine Gendron, christinegendron@sympatico.ca, indicating the number of works and their sizes, would be helpful. Or, just show up at the date, but risk being turned away.
Please be prepared to record your paintings with: Title, Medium, Size, and Price along with your name, phone number and e-mail.  You can bring up to 3 paintings although, depending on the total number received, not all may be accepted.  North Gloucester Library can accommodate 20 paintings. Paintings must be ready for hanging, with appropriate framing and hardware to Arteast standards. Those who are bringing in a painting for the first time this year must sign an Arteast contract form.  Blank contracts will be available at the library. 
Fifteen percent (15%) of any sale is payable to Arteast for its operational budget.

When someone shows an interest in purchasing a piece, they will be advised to contact you directly to make the transaction.  We prefer to leave all works hanging for the duration of each exhibition.  If you must remove your work prior to the next change-over, please notify the appropriate coordinator, so the Librarian can be advised and take note of the authorized removal.  Neither the Library nor Arteast takes responsibility for the security of works exhibited but reasonable care is taken to ensure their security.  Remember that these are very public areas that put your work and name before the public.  Do your part to encourage people to visit the North Gloucester, Orleans, Blackburn Hamlet, and Ray Friel branches where Arteast members exhibit on a continuing basis.

We look forward to seeing exhibitors on Tuesday, March 10, 2015.
