3. North Gloucester Library Change-Over


It's time to change the Arteast exhibit
On Tuesday, July 10, 2018

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. 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, September 11, 2018.
If you are interested in exhibiting, an advance email, on or before Wednesday, July 4, 2018 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, July 10, 2018.

The show is called, Art Stories.
The artist is Lore Organ.
The show begins on June 26th and end July 31st.

Lore Organ has been passionate about painting since early childhood and as she explains in her own words, “the need to doodle, then draw and then paint has been part of me since the time I could hold a pencil and colour”. Over the years Lore has been able to develop her skills by participating in workshops and experimenting with a variety of media. These experiences, as well as the encouragement and support of other artists have greatly factored into her success as a painter.

Even though Lore’s participation in the arts was minimal during her teaching career, her passion never ceased. She was able to use some of that creativity to assist her in reaching out to students with special needs.


Lore’s retirement from the York Region Board of Education, allowed for a more concerted re-engagement with the art community and a re-ignition of her passion for painting. Lore held memberships at Kingcrafts, and SOYRA in southwestern Ontario. Since re-locating back to Orleans, Lore has become a member of Arteast, Nepean Fine Arts, and the Manotick Art associations.

Her art is entitled, ‘Art Stories by Lore Oser’. As she explains – every scene/image has a story attached which can be obvious or imagined in order to elicit a connection with the viewer. Simply put, her goal is to be a good story teller through her art.



6. Member's Announcement


The Basics of Shading in Graphine with Lissa Rachelle
Sunday, July 15th
Time: 10 am til 3 pm

Location: The Artists’ Workshop Gallery, 119 Beechwood Avenue, Ottawa (free parking available on site).
Fee: $65
ONLY 4 SPOTS AVAILABLE!

Discover the true magic of pencils in this single day, 5 hour workshop, which is designed to introduce you to the tools used by pencil artists who work in a realist style. Besides learning about all the various tools that help create the magic, you will also learn the real secret behind achieving those beautifully smooth blended tones that so many artists struggle to perfect. No previous drawing experience is necessary for this workshop...but this workshop is a pre-requisite for my other workshops and classes being offered later in the summer and fall.
