On View: Carleton Curatorial Lab (CCL): The Nature of Beasts in 17th-century Prints 
Matthias Greuter (1564/66-1638) after Virgil Solis (1514-62), Fourteen Animals, c. 1581-90). Etching from a model-book. Private collection.
Artist model-books traditionally recorded the motifs used and adapted in the master’s workshop. The oldest synonym for “model-book” is “pattern book” (15th century) - “pattern” is etymologically related to “patron” in the sense that a patron provided a model to be copied.
The Nuremberg workshop of Virgil Solis produced the book illustrations (woodcuts for Bibles, Aesop’s Fables and Ovid’s Metamorphoses) as well as pictorial playing cards, and model-book prints. Solis’s tiny and widely-imitated designs, in particular his grotesque friezes, served as models for decorating finely detailed objects such as etched glass goblets and metal chalices.

Ottawa Art Scene: December 12 - 18

Tonight, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts curator Rosalind Pepall will be giving a talk at the National Gallery of Canada on "The Architect as Artist: "Pictures in an Exhibition"". Pepall will be discussing the drawings and watercolours by Canadian architects in Artists, Architects and Artisans: Canadian Art 1890-1918. Don’t forget to check out the NGC shop for some creative gifts.

On Friday, the School of Photographic Arts: Ottawa and Guerrilla Magazine are teaming up for a winter fundraiser at SPA:O, which will include tons of live music, the launch of Guerrilla Magazine’s newest edition, and works by SPA:O artists (plus delicious snacks and drinks). Help support this great school!

Also on Friday evening, the Karsh-Masson Gallery moves to it’s new permanent location in Ottawa City Hall with an exhibition of paintings by EBA artist Tavi Weisz called One Last Time. His paintings, as Stefan St-Laurent writes, incorporate “a palette of blazing colours and imagery infused in witticism.” Congratulations to the Karsh-Masson Gallery on it’s big move!

Finish (or start?) your holiday shopping at Urban Craft: Holiday Edition! on Saturday afternoon at the Glebe Community Centre. Their list of local vendors, selling food, jewellery, body products, art, etc., looks really exciting (confession: I’ve been following Top Shelf Preserves around from craft show to craft show for most of the holiday season). I also can’t wait to try some of Auntie Loo’s treats at the pop-up shop.

Have a good weekend!

6ottarts, ottawa art scene,

You are all invited to the Opening Reception for The 3rd Carleton Community Art Exhibition on Monday, 13 January at noon. If you have work in the show (it’s not too late!), or know someone who has, come help us celebrate all the creativity that Carleton has to offer!
