1. Exhibit at North Gloucester Library

It's time to change the Arteast exhibit at North Gloucester Library


On Tuesday, MARCH 14, 2017:
Please retrieve the works that have been hanging for the past two months and/or bring in new paintings (or other two dimensional art) for the North Gloucester Library, 2036 Ogilvie Road, Ottawa, K1J 7N8.

The coordinators will be at the Library between 10:30 a.m. and 11:30.a.m. For those who are dropping off art work, please arrive between 10:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. so that your work can be documented and hung before 11:30 a.m.. For those who are picking up only, please arrive no later than 11:15 a.m.

These new pieces will hang for two months.
The next change-over will be on Tuesday, MAY 9, 2017.
If you are interested in exhibiting, an advance email, on or before Wednesday, MARCH 8, to Christine Gendron, christinegendron@sympatico.ca, indicating the number of works and their sizes, would be helpful. Or, just show up at the date, but risk being turned away.

Please be prepared to record your paintings with: Title, Medium, Size, and Price along with your name, phone number and e-mail. You can bring up to 3 paintings although, depending on the total number received, not all may be accepted. North Gloucester Library can accommodate 20 paintings. Paintings must be ready for hanging, with appropriate framing and hardware to Arteast standards. Those who are bringing in a painting for the first time this year must sign an Arteast contract form. Blank contracts will be available at the library.
Fifteen percent (15%) of any sale is payable to Arteast for its operational budget.

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. If you must remove your work prior to the next change-over, please notify the appropriate coordinator, so the Librarian can be advised and take note of the authorized removal. Neither the Library nor Arteast takes responsibility for the security of works exhibited but reasonable care is taken to ensure their security. 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, St. Laurent Complex, and Blackburn Hamlet Libraries, where Arteast members exhibit on a continuing basis.

We look forward to seeing exhibitors on Tuesday, MARCH 14, 2017.

5. CPAWS-OV Dumoine River Art Camp

CPAWS-OV will be hosting our first annual Dumoine River Art Camp from August 2-7, 2017. The Art Camp will bring together artists working in different mediums and from communities across the Outaouais region. We will explore the Dumoine River, create works of art, share stories, and become inspired by this magnificent landscape. Next winter, we will hold two art shows to display the works derived from this art camp. One show will be located in the Pontiac region to highlight the beauty of their own backyard and the other show will be in Ottawa to reach a wider audience. We will host an artist’s evening and Fundraising Gala during the Ottawa showing.

Applications for artists to participate will be open from March 1 – April 30, 2017. Applications can be found here. On May 15, 2017, we will officially announce the artists who have been selected to attend. There will be no cost to participate in the art camp, however each artist is asked to donate a completed piece. These donated works will be displayed in our art shows. You can help by:

• Spreading the word
• Volunteering
• Donating equipment
Making a special donation to CPAWS-OV to help fund the art camp and protect the Dumoine River
