Installation is speeding up at CUAG this week, as everyone works hard to get ready for our upcoming winter exhibitions, Sharon Hayes: Loudspeakers and Other Forms of Listening and Dennis Tourbin: The Language of Visual Poetry.

While we’re closed until the official opening reception on February 3rd, there are lots of other ways to get your art kick in Ottawa this week.

Tonight, head to Voix Visuelle in Vanier, for the opening reception of Les mécanismes trompeurs a new exhibition from Thérèse Guy, in which she examines the contiguity between photography and new imaging technologies. She gets her inspiration from the news that inform us of the state of the world and make us assimilate the information from all sources.

If you couldn’t get enough of Laura Letinsky’s still life photographs, the Redwall Gallery at School of Photographic Arts: Ottawa has just the thing: a new exhibition by one of the school’s students, Zachary Pantalone, calledStill Life. Pantalone’s still life work offers vivid colours and textures of food inspired by American Mark Rothko’s transitional “multiform” or colour field paintings. The opening reception for the exhibition will be held on Friday evening.

Also on Friday night, Patrick Mikhail Gallery presents PRIMERfeaturing new works by four artists: Colin Muir Dorward, Natasha Mazurka, Amy Schissel, and Andrew Smith. This is a great chance to check out new projections and directions of some great local artists. There will also be an artist talk on Thursday, February 20th.

The National Gallery of Canada is hosting a Valuation Day on Saturday, in partnership with Heffel Auction House. You can book time with one of their professional appraisers to look at that dusty (potentially valuable) painting, sculpture, or photograph. Our own personal Antique Roadshow!

Ottawa Art Scene: January 16 - 22

Tonight, we’re really excited to be presenting the Carleton Community Performance Night. There will be everything from spoken word to synth music to video projections… Pretty cool stuff, all by Carleton students.

There are a few things happening around town as well this weekend. A new show at the Ottawa Art Gallery opened on the 11th called Bringing it Home: Abstraction and the Painters Eleven. One of the gallery’s Firestone Collection shows, the group exhibition features painters like Jack Bush and Kazuo Nakamura, and looks at the Toronto-based painting group, the Painters Eleven.

On Saturday morning, there is a Meet the Curator talk at the National Gallery of Canada. Take a tour of the excellent Artists, Artisans, and Architects with the prolific curator Charlie Hill. Even if you’ve already seen the show, it’ll definitely be worth it to go again in order to hear about how the extensive exhibition was put together.

If you’re looking for something fun to do on Monday night, head to Oz Kafe for some drinks, music and photography by local artist James Erdeg. With a name like BEAUTY SURROUNDS YOU BECAUSE YOU CREATE IT, what’s stopping you?

Have a great weekend!
