3. Arteast Members Invitated to Exhibit at Luna Sole Restaurant in 2018

There are eight opportunities for member artists to have solo exhibitions at Luna Sole Restaurant in 2018. The available dates are attached. Note that the last date (December 4 to January 8) is a group show of the 2018 participating artists.

Displays are mounted on the restaurant walls for approximately six weeks, beginning January 2nd. Examples of exhibitors can be found at the Luna Sole page of the Arteast website (www.arteastottawa.com)

Luna Sole is located in the mall at the corner of Youville Drive and Jeanne d’Arc Boulevard.

There is no charge to participate but sales are subject to a 15% commission paid to Arteast. The usual Arteast conditions apply, which include being a current member of Arteast. Also, because most of the artwork will be hung in a rather high traffic area, it is very important that the frame be fitted with wire rather than clips. Exhibitors should visit the site to familiarize themselves with the exhibition space – which is a wall, dominated by an operating television set. Depending on the size of the work up to eight pieces can be shown on this wall. There are also two separate walls that are suitable for one large picture each.

Exhibitors accept responsibility for any penalties incurred and abide by the Arteast Coordinator’s decisions. Arteast is released from any responsibility for loss or damages to any of the artworks. It is also agreed that Arteast has the right to use work entered in the exhibition for promotional purposes without this infringing on any copyright.

Please respond to the Coordinators– Gwen Cowan or Richard Pell - at your earliest convenience with your selected first and second choice of dates.

For more information, please feel free to call or e-mail at
Gwen Cowan: gwencowan@rogers.com; 613-744-3909
Richard Pell: richardpell@rogers.com; 613-491-0420

4. Orleans Library Exhibition Changeover - Reminder

It's time to change the exhibition at the Orleans Library, 1705 Orleans Blvd., Orleans, Ontario.

On Tuesday, November 7, 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 January 2, 2018. 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. There are no hanging fees for the Orleans Library Exhibitions.

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.

We look forward to seeing exhibitors on Tuesday, November 7, 2017, at 10:30 a.m

A showing of photographic prints from their camping trip in 2017 where they went out to do comparative photography in an area that they have traveled many times over the last three decades. Along the way they visited as many swimming places as they could find - from spa pools to the local swimming hole to the Lake Superior shores. On their return, they expected to see Jake's serene panoramic landscapes and Jane's curious investigations of people and nature. Come see what they saw - it’s not quite as cut and dried as anticipated.
