This weekend is packed with art-filled things to do in Ottawa, so take your pick!
On Friday night, head down to Old Ottawa South to Patrick Mikhail Gallery for the vernissage of Adrian Göllner’s solo show, Norwegian Wood. Göllner, a well-known Ottawa conceptual artist, uses pieces of analogue technology like record players and harmonographs to create fascinating drawings. Very intriguing.
Also on Friday is the Creative Mornings + Ottawa School of Art + School of Photographic Arts: Ottawa fundraiser ArtThrob. Proceeds go to scholarship funds for both OSA and SPA:O, plus you get to hang out with musical acts Zoo Legacy, NDMA and Silkken Laumann.
On Saturday Night, turn yourself into art at The Daily Grind with the ever popular Partyy. If you show up early, you can get your picture taken, framed, and hung on the wall for people to decorate!
On Sunday afternoon, Rosalie Favell’s new show opens at Cube Gallery in Westboro. Her photographic series incorporate family photographs, self-portraits and pop culture figures (including Xena, Warrior Princess - a personal favourite). Very powerful, very fun. Definitely check this show out.
Monday evening is our last (sob!) edition of DOUBLE MAJOR. It’s been a really awesome experience putting on this “lecture” series, and I’ve loved every single one. I’m really looking forward to this one, which features Carleton U. Art History professor Ming Tiampo facing off against local DJ and media artist Bear Witness. Ming will be talking about her recent Gutai exhibition at the Guggenheim, while Bear will focus on Billy the NDN Scout from Predator. Not to be missed!
