Happy New Year!
Classes don’t begin at Carleton until Monday, so you’ve got a few days to enjoy some art-inspired outings.
Tomorrow night, get a woman’s perspective with the group exhibition GAZE. Curated by Carleton student and local photographer Olivia Johnston, the show is full of local talent, including Blair Smith and Gillian King. Plus the $10 stick + poke tattoos are back.
Speaking of the female gaze, Venus Envy has moved to a new location on Bank St., and they are celebrating on Sunday night with a Filthy Dirty Art Show, full of titillating (sorry, I had to) artworks, plus live painting by Fall Down Gallery’s Robbie Lariviere.
Also on Sunday, Petra Halkes’ new solo exhibition opens at Cube Gallery. Her paintings from the series Window Shopping show Ottawa at night, while Reflections also focuses on how scenes are blurred and layered when seen through window panes.
We’re open all weekend so stop by for your last chance to see Laura Letinsky: Still Life Photographs and The Nature Beasts in 17th-Century Prints. Who knows - maybe the whole canal will be open and you can skate here!
Stay warm everyone!
