2. Orleans Library Exhibition Changeover - Reminder
It's time to change the exhibition at the Orleans Library, 1705 Orleans Blvd., Orleans, Ontario.
On Tuesday, May 2, 2017, please retrieve the works that are currently hanging and/or bring in new paintings (or other two-dimensional art) to the Orleans Library. These new pieces will be hung until July 4, 2017. The changeover at the Orleans Library is between 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
Please be prepared to record the following information on the back of your paintings : title; medium; size; and, price; along with your name, phone number and e-mail. You can bring up to five (5) paintings although, depending on the total received, not all may be accepted. Paintings must be properly framed and ready for hanging. For those of you who are bringing in paintings for the first time this year, there is an Arteast contract you must sign. Blank contracts will be available then at the Library.
When someone expresses an interest in purchasing a piece, they will be advised to contact you directly to make the transaction. Fifteen percent of any sale is payable to Arteast for its operational budget. 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.
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 Orleans, North Gloucester, Blackburn Hamlet and St. Laurent Library branches where Arteast members exhibit on a continuing basis.
We look forward to seeing exhibitors on Tuesday, May 2, 2017, at 10:30 a.m.

Information: Jessie Parker Jessie@photobasedart.com
Title : Music and Motion
Jennifer’s works convey both music and motion through color in strength; brush strokes in determination of mind and spirit; and passion in texture.
Spending a portion of her childhood in Moose Factory, Northern Ontario, the explosion of colour that is characteristic of Canadian Aboriginal Art has influenced her art. She often incorporates underpainting in her work to create depth. She also likes the use of an ‘illusion of a line’ and finds that it can be more powerful than the use of the line itself. Her fascination with movement and energy is often the focal point of her work. Her work is unconventional and bold but also a genuine view of her perspective of the world.
