2. Grow with Art- L’art en herbe

Tuesday March 28, -le 28 mars
7:00 “Meet and Greet” à 19h - 7:30 Présentation à 19h 30
Room 340 salle, 255 Centrum Blvd.
Presenter: Maryse Legault

Topic: “Demonstration of fabric Sculpting” Démo de l’intégration de tissue en art

The presentation will be done mostly with a PowerPoint presentation. Maryse has taken pictures of every step of making a fabric sculpture- beginning with the armature to the draping of the sculpture. The product is messy and it takes several hours to create a sculpture. She will have several pieces at different stages of construction, including a selection of completed sculptures.

She will bring a container of paverpol and demonstrate with a tiny face on a canvas to show how this product can be incorporated with acrylic paint to create great mixed media. Maryse will also show the process of draping the fabric on a sculpture by doing a few parts of the body.

3. Raylene Mulrooney at Luna Sole Bistro

Introducing, Raylene Mulrooney and her first solo show at the Luna Sole Bistro. Her interest in photograph began in September of 1981 when she attended the Graphic and Visual Design Program at Kwantlen College in Surrey, BC. Since then it has become her passion. She says that, “her photos are her way of paying it forward”.

For Raylene, Petrie Island is a magical place that she frequently visits. You are likely to find her there early in the morning, “enjoying the world as it wakes up”. She enjoys “the constant changes, the peacefulness and the renewal of the spirit that happens there”.

The collection that she has put together for the Luna Sole show, are winter scenes that capture those magical moments she has enjoyed at Petrie Island. The show will be there until May 9th.



4. Members’ Announcements

Jessie Parker announces her upcoming solo show at Galérie Old Chelsea, 783 Rte 105, Chelsea ,QC , March 31-April 19. The vernissage will be held on Sunday, April 2, 1-4pm. You are most welcome to attend. Hope to see you there…

In case you have not been there before: Go north on Rte 5, take Tenaka exit, East on Chemin Scott, turn right on Rte 105, first building on your right. Les Fougères, famous for great French cuisine, is on the first floor. The gallery is up the stairs .

The show consists of photo based digital art printed on aluminum, canvas, archival paper and photo-transfer on wood. The imagery is what she now calls “lightscapes” , composed entirely of light, and based on cityscapes of Ottawa, Toronto, and New York City. They are images that are derived from what the camera can see but the eye cannot. Most of the show features works not seen before in this area and most of those brand new.

We are looking for someone who does face painting for a Lyme disease awareness event that is going to take place on June 3rd, 2017 on Parliament Hill. This would unfortunately have to be a VOLUNTEER opportunity, but the face painter could ask for donations. The event is called VOCAL (Voices of Canadians About Lyme).
