Presenter: Hilde Lambrechts
Topic: “The lowest form of art?”

Hilde will talk about her background, how she became involved in the art world and why she chose ceramics as her main discipline. Then she will move on to where her ideas come from, how they take shape and the highs and lows before and after the exhibitions, illustrated by images of her work. She will close with touching on the sometimes fine line between art and craft and how the choice of medium seems to determine the judgement of how the work is perceived and valued.

The presentation will be in English.

Claire Ouseley Exhibition of Paintings
St Laurent Library in conjunction with Arteast is proud to present an exhibition of paintings by Claire Ouseley (CHI'KAN). This solo show is titled "Reflections: Flowers" and runs from April 1 to June 24, 2016.

Flowers have inspired artists throughout time, irrespective of age, language or culture. They  survive in memories as symbols of important events in our lives. In this collection, Claire paints  flowers that represent significant personal moments. She has worked in a variety of media and  likes experimenting with different techniques - from the delicacy of Chinese brush painting to  the broad strokes of impasto.

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.

4. Members' announcement
Reminder  - Last two weeks for exhibition of works by Mike Phillips and Lynne Alsford

Mike Phillips and Lynne Alsford are 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 are on display until Thursday 31 March, comprise discarded items from various sources and are individually themed but always adhere to the objectives: recycle and re-purpose.
5. Misc
A group of Public Relations students from Algonquin college is hosting a glow in the dark/ art battle event to raise money for a local charity organization called LiveWorkPlay.

6 Arteast 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.
