1. Claire Cameron at Luna Sole

Claire Cameron is our current artist showing at the Luna Sole Restaurant. Art has been a crucial part of Claires life but has had to take a backseat to obtaining an Engineering degree and working with the Canadian Forces and then on to Project management. However, through the years art education and training has been present in various forms from weekly classes to intensive workshops, including:

-Workshops at Confederation Centre of the Arts
-Mixed media at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design
-Watercolour Studies at Canadore College
-Life drawing skills with Ottawa Adult Education
-Encaustic workshops, and Drawing with Colour at Winnipeg Arty Gallery

Claire's preferred medium is encaustic on wood, often with additional media embedded. On the other end of the spectrum, she often works with watercolour, creating small pictures often of waves or flowers. She is excited to be exploring digital art and has begun working with several applications to discover what can be created.

Luna Sole Restaurant is located at 5935 Jeanne D’arc Blvd in Orleans.  

The show is on until September 12th.

4. Art on the Farm in the Arboretum

Friends of the Farm's premier summer event Art on the Farm showcases local and regional artists. There isn't a more beautiful and peaceful setting in Ottawa than under the luxurious canopy of the Arboretum next to Building 72 on the Central Experimental Farm. A wide range of original media is featured including watercolour, acrylic and oil paintings, glass fusion and jewelry, wire works and stained glass, wood and leather, pottery and scroll saw art, and more.

The event is FREE to the public and runs from 10am to 4pm Saturday August 12 with a rain date on Sunday August 13 (10am to 4pm). A silent auction, food, and beverages will also be part of the event.

If this natural setting is the place for your artwork, please visit information and registration material. For more information, call 613-230-3276 or email info@friendsofthefarm.ca.
