1. Arteast Volunteers Needed


Arteast is run solely by volunteers, members like you who contribute a little of their time to ensure that the organization can provide its many programs and run its exhibition venues. Without the help of its members in volunteer roles, Arteast would not be the dynamic organization it is. Don't forget that, by volunteering, you are not simply working for other members, you are working for yourself and making Arteast work for you. Make Arteast work for you by becoming a volunteer.


Arteast needs a member to step forward to take on the role of Vice President in January 2016. You can make an important contribution to your organization and help shape Arteast's future by joining the Executive in this capacity. The key purpose of the VP is to support the President and assist that person with their duties. t is not essential to have professional experience as an executive or a manager but you should have organizational skills, good judgement and common sense....attributes that we all develop from life's experiences. You have what it takes and your organization needs you for VP.

If you are interested in helping in these capacities, please contact me at president@arteastottawa.com or 613-830-1829.

Lynne Alsford

Vice President and
Acting President

Arteast travaille pour vous, vous devez travailler pour Arteast

Arteast est une association dont les membres sont des bénévoles. Des membres comme vous, en donnant un peu de leur temps, assurent que l’organisation puisse maintenir ses nombreux programmes et activités. Sans l’aide bénévole de ses membres, Arteast ne pourrait pas être l’organisation dynamique que l’on connaît. Rappelez-vous qu’en étant bénévole vous ne travaillez pas uniquement pour les membres, vous travaillez pour vous et Arteast aussi pour vous. Faites que l’association travaille pour vous en devenant bénévole.

Besoin de bénévole à titre de Vice-Présidente ou V.-Président

Pour janvier 2016, Arteast a besoin d’un membre pour occuper la fonction de Vice-Présidente ou V.-Président. Vous pouvez être d’une grande contribution à votre association en vous joignant à l’Exécutif d’Arteast. Les fonctions clés du VP sont d’aider la Présidente et de l’assister dans ses responsabilités. Il n’est pas nécessaire d’avoir une formation professionnelle comme exécutif ou en gestion mais d’avoir des aptitudes d’organisation et d’un bon jugement… qualités que vous avez développées tout au cours de vos expériences de vie. Vous avez ce qu’il faut et votre association a besoin de vous comme VP.

Si l’une ou l’autre de ces fonctions vous intéresse, S.V.P., veuillez me contacter : president@arteastottawa.com or 613-830-1829.

2. Arteast Speaker series Grow with Art/L’art en herbe, Tuesday, September 22

Meet and Greet at 7 pm Speaker at 7:30pm
2nd floor gallery at 255 Centrum Blvd.
Presents Katherine Jeans, well known film maker and visual artist.
In search of the Existential Moment” An Artist crossover between TV/film and Visual Art. Collaborative and isolated. Marketing your work in today’s Social Media and Multi-Media platforms. What to expect from Broadcasters and Galleries.
From Katherine Jeans website:Through my career in film I have been conditioned to see the world at 24 frames a second.   To freeze a moment ultimately challenges my notion of what is perfection.
Through video installations and paintings I hope to challenge your thinking to look beyond just a beautiful flower or a scene from nature but to share with you an ephemeral moment that can never be repeated. Contradictions of this dimension will be the tension between what I perceive is perfection and what the viewer sees it as.  After all beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

3. St. Laurent Library: Jessie Parker’s Photo-based digital art image

St-Laurent-Library in conjunction with Arteast is proud to present an exhibition of photo based digital art works by Jessie Parker. This solo show is titled ‘Hidden in Plain Sight’ and runs from Oct 2, 2015 to January 8, 2016

Jessie Parker’s photographic images operate on both the physical and metaphorical levels pushing the envelope technically and visually. She goes beyond the “traditional” depiction of subjects, playing with what is real and what seems real but isn’t, the visionary and the transformative, re-presenting the world and inviting us to see otherwise. In these photo-based digital works she uses digital “paint” with a special “pen” used like a brush, applying digital “paint” stroke by stroke to the image in a technique which allows her to be inventive, interpretive and intuitive.

Maritime born and schooled, Jessie received her B.Ed and BFA from Mount Allison U., under Alex Colville, 1965. She has lived in Ottawa since 1979 and has shown extensively in Maritimes, Ontario, USA. She stock photos have been published worldwide since 1987. Her talks at the national Gallery pulled in record crowds in the ‘90s. Her recent eBooks for Visual Artists and new paperback are published by Amazon. She is a featured speaker at ArtSchoolFair 2015.

This is a unique opportunity for the public to enjoy, encourage and support artists in their local community as well as the St-Laurent Library.

Location: St-Laurent branch of the Ottawa Public Library, 515 Côté, Ottawa K1K 0Z8
Hours: Monday to Thursday: 10 - 8:30, Friday: 1:00 - 6:00, Saturday: 10:00- 5:00, Sunday: closed.

6. Communiqué

Arteast's hard-copy, quarterly newsletter—Communiqué—is popular with our members, but did you know that it is also available on our Web site at http://arteastottawa.com/newsletter.php? A notification when a new issue is released is communicated via the weekly Arteast Digest. Posting of the Web version may be viewed in full dazzling colour, at least two weeks before the print version (black and white) is delivered by Canada Post. With rising postal costs, some members have requested that they be removed from the mailing list for the printed copy. Other advantages of going with the online Communiqué are:
- reduces printing and envelope costs;
- makes Arteast more "green";
- no more hunting for misplaced issues (Arteast's Web site has the current and all back issues).
Printed copies will be available at our monthly Grow With Art meetings and the Promenade Arteast gallery at the Shenkman Arts Centre. If you prefer to read the newsletter online, please e-mail us at editor@arteastottawa.com to have your name removed from the newsletter mailing list.

La copie imprimée du trimestriel d’Arteast – Communiqué – est populaire auprès de ses membres, mais saviez-vous qu’il est aussi disponible sur le site Web http://arteastottawa.com/newsletter.php ? Lors de sa publication, une notice paraît dans l’hebdomadaire Arteast Digest. Sur le Web il peut être lu et vu en couleurs deux semaines avant la version imprimée ( noir et blanc) postée par Poste Canada. Compte tenu du coût postal croissant plusieurs membres ont enlevé leur nom pour l’envoi postal - vers le Web. Il y a d’ailleurs d’autres avantages du Communiqué en ligne tels que :
- réduire les coûts de l’imprimé et de l’enveloppe;
- Arteast plus ‘vert’;
- ne plus être à la recherche du numéro manquant (le Web d’Arteast conserve le numéro courant et les anciens numéros).
Des copies imprimées seront disponibles à la réunion mensuelle L’Art en herbe et à la galerie Promenade Arteast au Centre Shenkman. Si vous préférez lire le Communiqué en ligne, s.v.p. contactez : editor@arteastottawa.com afin d’enlever votre nom de la liste d’envoi postal.
