3. 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.

5. New York Art Trip 2016

From Thursday March 10 to Sunday March 13
Departure from Ottawa and pick-up for participants from Kingston

Hello everyone,
Join us for New York art trip 2016! Three nights and four days visiting the MoMa, the Met, the Guggenheim, the new Whitney, the Chelsea Galleries and more! A great way to break the winter and recharge your creativity batteries!
Unlike other trips to NYC, New York Art Trip offers the services of an art historian on board and the opportunity to travel with a group like-minded adults. In addition, we offer accommodation in the heart of Manhattan, reasonable prices, a flexible schedule and lots of fun.
We invite you to register now by filling out the Registration Form and sending it back to us with your deposit of 150$ per person as soon as possible and by January 7. As usual, we are under very severe conditions from our beautifully located hotel and we need to provide an early confirmation of the number of rooms we need. Thanks for your understanding.

For further information:

ATTENTION MEMBERS: If you have an announcement for the Digest, please send your email to arteastottawa@gmail.com. Please do not send registrations for exhibitions or other events to this email which is only used for information for the Digest. The emails will not be checked on a daily basis. Therefore, please make sure that you send any announcements two weeks in advance so that they can be approved by the president in time. Thank you.
