1. Exhibit Change at the Orleans Library
It’s time to change the exhibit at the Ottawa Public Library: Orleans Branch at 1705 Orleans Boulevard, Orleans, Ontario.
On Tuesday, March 1st, 2016, please retrieve the works that have been hanging for the past two months and/or bring in new paintings (or other two dimensional art) to the Orleans Library. These new pieces will hang until Tuesday May 3rd, 2016.
The changeover at the Orleans Library is between 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
Please come prepared to record information about your paintings: Title, Medium, Size, and Price along with your name, phone number and e-mail. You can bring up to 5 paintings although, depending on the total received, not all may be accepted. Paintings must be properly framed and ready for hanging.
For those bringing a painting for the first time this year, you will be asked to sign or update an Arteast contract. Blank contracts will be available at the Library.
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. Neither the Library nor Arteast takes responsibility for the security of works exhibited but reasonable care is taken to ensure their security.
Fifteen percent of any sale is payable to Arteast for its operational budget.
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 and the Blackburn Hamlet Library branches where Arteast members exhibit on a continuing basis
We look forward to seeing exhibitors on Tuesday March 1st at 10:30.a.m.
Orleans Library Coordinator Sheila Forsyth and Corinne Feasey
2. Members Announcements
Mike Phillips and Lynne Alsford will be exhibiting some of their junk art sculpture in the display case across from the AOE offices on the main floor at the Shenkman Arts Centre. The works, which will be on display from Wednesday, 2 March until Thursday 31 March, comprise discarded items from various sources and are individually themed but always adhere to the objectives: recycle and re-purpose.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 : email@example.com afin d’enlever votre nom de la liste d’envoi.
