1. Annual Critique Night / Critique d'art annuelle



le français suit



Light snacks will be provided.

On Tuesday June 25, 2019, member artists are invited to bring one piece of unframed, unsigned work or a digital photo uploaded on a computer stick or disc in a jpeg format to the Annual Critique Night. We will have the computer and projector. We only have 70 minutes so it will be on first come basis.

Feeling shy….. come along and see what others are up to and join the fun anyway! See you Tuesday!

Donata Szafian will help members with suggestions on the work they present.

Donata Szafian is a classically-trained figurative artist. Her formal art education is rooted in Hungary. She obtained her BFA in Sculpture, followed by a BA in Industrial Design and MA in Jewellery Design.

Having her background in both fine art and design gives Donata a practical and problem solving mind-frame. This shows in her positive and constructive approach to critiquing artwork.

Her constant drive to learn and take her artwork to higher standards took her to New York to study under the guidance of Nelson Shanks, and recently to Florence to study with Michael John Angel.

7:00 pm - meet and greet
7:30 pm - announcements with critique to follow. Room 340, 255 Centrum Blvd.

Donata Szafian commenteras les oeuvres des membres qui présenteront une oeuvre.

Donata Szafian est une artiste figurative. Elle a étudiée en Hongrie d’ou elle a obtenue son baccalauréat en beaux-arts en sculpture, suivie d’un baccalauréat en design industriel et d’une maîtrise en joaillerie.

Avoir son expérience dans les beaux-arts et le design donne à Donata un esprit pratique et de résolution de problems qui lui sont utile dans son approche positive et constructive de critiquer les œuvres d’art.

Son intérêt constant pour apprendre et rendre son œuvre d’art à des normes plus élevées l’emmena à New York pour étudier sous la direction de Nelson Shanks, et récemment à Florence pour étudier avec Michael John Angel.

Art in Strathcona Park 2019 - L'Art dans le parc Strathcona - 2019

The Mental Illness Caregivers Association (MICA) is sending you this invitation to join us for the 19th edition of Art in Strathcona Park on Saturday, August 10 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and to ask for your help to promote it. Registration is currently open to artists and artisans – please see attached registration form and note the early bird discount until July 17. Our public postcard is also included and can be uploaded to your Facebook page. We also invite you to LIKE and SHARE our event on our Facebook page.

Artists and artisans and undiscovered talents will come together to sell their work directly to the public and to raise public awareness about mental illness. More than just original art, Art in Strathcona Park also offers jewellery, pottery, stained glass, wood carvings, hand-made soap and honey, to name just a few, and will also feature a silent auction and a BBQ - something for just about everyone!

Art in Strathcona Park is a fundraising and public awareness event sponsored by Mental Illness Caregivers Association (MICA). Did you know that in any given year, 1 in 5 Canadian experiences a mental health problem or illness? The sad fact is that we are all touched in some way by mental health issues through a family member, a friend or a colleague. Unfortunately, the reality is that public misconceptions, fear and the stigma associated with having a mental illness may discourage people from seeking help for themselves or their family member.

At MICA, we are committed to assisting caregivers and their family members manage the effects of mental illness and/or addictions through education, guidance and support including how to navigate the mental health and/or addiction systems. We know that well-supported caregivers in turn provide better support to persons living with a mental illness by helping them to manage or recover from their illness. It is our hope that through Art in Strathcona Park, MICA will continue to have the necessary resources to help families improve their capacity to provide quality care to their relatives, and also help reduce the stigma associated with mental illness.

Please help us by letting your community know about this wonderful opportunity this summer to showcase or view art in one of Ottawa’s most beautiful parks, and to help a good cause at the same time!

Thank you,

Sandy Macpherson

Arteast Digest: Grow with Art, Field Trip

1. Arteast Grow with Art / Grandir avec l'art


Presents Alex Wyse, Tuesday May 28

7:00-  meet and greet, 7:30 announcements with presentation to follow. Room 340, 255 Centrum Blvd.


Alexander John Wyse was born in the United Kingdom in 1938. He recalls being consumed by  drawing  and  painting  as a child. After moving to Canada, he met his wife and collaborator Anne, a teacher from Saskatchewan. Perhaps owing to Alex’s British origin or perhaps to other factors, the couple has settled in the nation’s capital of Ottawa, Ontario.

As the home of the country’s government, Ottawa is a city filled with people involved in politics; if not directly, then by association. The city’s overwhelming tone of governance and social consequence has found its way into the work of Alex Wyse as he interrogates, subverts, and celebrates the political  context  of his own art practice.

Wyse often comments on such politically charged themes as the environment, governmental responsibility, and regionalism itself. His 1970 work Super Shows Proudly Presents Ease Into the Countryside plays with the perceived divisions between country- and city-life, while adopting the rhetoric of commercialism by promoting itself as a way to “ease into the countryside for the city type - deluxe model” and containing drawers of garbage and urban noisemakers.

The work of Alex Wyse often adopts a rustic style, not unlike that of his contemporaries Joe Fafard and Vic Cicansky, even if Wyse uses different materials. But through the  appropriation of other traditions of communication, Wyse has managed in his practice to create lighthearted works that deal with serious issues; Parliamentary Desk Thumper, Wyse’s work presented on the ARTSask website, is no exception.

If Alex Wyse is  unable to attend, Mary Ann Varley will  present "A Sticky Business- a journey into collage"

************************

Last month’s Grow with Art meeting was met with locked doors to the City building. There was a glitch in the invoicing system, so Arteast members were locked out in the rain. Thanks to some quick thinking members like Catherine Niman and Mike Phillips, we were able to have a special presentation at the Lexus Restaurant by Rosalie Favell. Lexus even had a projector screen! It turned out to be a great evening!

Thanks to all the Arteast members who participated that evening.
