2. Elizabeth Twiss - Exhibition of Paintings

St-Laurent Library, in conjunction with Arteast, is proud to present an exhibition of paintings by Ottawa artist Elizabeth Twiss (Howells Humm). This solo show is titled BESOTTED and runs from January 6 to March 31, 2017.

This series of paintings was inspired by drawings the artist did in life-drawing classes where the models would often use an exercise ball as a prop. Starting from the idea of the ball as an object of desire, BESOTTED explores the nature of the relationship between the person and the beloved. through different poses, the relationship between the model and the prop.

Elizabeth paints mainly in oils, creating depth by layering transparent pigments. She holds a Fine Arts Certificate from St Lawrence College and has many years experience working with watercolours.

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.

Hours: Monday to Thursday: 10 - 8:30, Friday: 1:00 - 6:00, Saturday: 10:00- 5:00, Sunday: closed
