David Becker at Blackburn Hamlet Library - Communiqué - Members Announcements - AOE Announcements

1. David Becker exhibition of photographic art at Blackburn Hamlet Library

Blackburn Hamlet Library in conjunction with Arteast is proud to present an exhibition of photographs by David Becker. This solo show is titled “Altered Perceptions” and runs from Jan 30th to April 1st, 2016.

These photos present subjects abstracted to remove the original context and meaning, challenging the viewer to re-examine perceptions of reality and look at the world through fresh eyes. A self-taught artist, David is also an urban designer, which influences his subject matter.

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.
Information: Jessie Parker Jessie@photobasedart.com

2. 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.

3. Members Announcements

Arteast members Janis Fulton and Kerstin Peters together with their friend Hélène Martin are showing a wonderful variety of their landscape paintings, mostly painted on site in the greater Ottawa area in their exhibition "Three Friends, Three Times the Passion" at Tyros Shawarma Lebanese Restaurant, 5929 Jeanne d'Arc Boulevard South, Orléans, ON K1C 6V8.

What started out as a group of painting buddies, has evolved into a true friendship. The three friends have painted together for about 10 years. They enjoy painting outside while breathing in the fresh air, listening to the sounds of nature, and spending time with like-minded artists. They are inspired to capture the Canadian landscape and climate in its diversity. While they certainly influence each other, they all have developed their own style.

The exhibition runs until March 4, 2016.

Meet the Artists: January 31, 2016 from 4-6 pm.
