While there is not a lot going on during the long weekend (everyone will presumably be eating and making merry with the turkeys), there are a few events happening before and after Thanksgiving.
Local artist Raymond Aubin has a new show of photo-works opening at City Hall Art Gallery tonight. His interest in public spaces, and the way that we connect to them has inspired a series "Au jour le jour" (From Day to Day), in which he uses a technique that creates an illusion of movement, linking his practice with video. If you can’t make the vernissage tonight, there will be an artist talk on the 27th of October.
If you’re hanging out with kids this weekend (nieces, nephews, cousins, etc.) and need something to do, head over to the Ottawa Art Gallery on Sunday for the return of their Creative Sundays program, where anyone can participate in free art-making activities throughout Sundays in the fall. This Sunday, they’ll be playing with a photo booth and making collages.
On Tuesday evening, the October edition of DOUBLE MAJOR will be held here at the gallery. The topics are permaculture (sustainable ecological design) and “beautiful monsters” (think Edward Cullin). Join us for the Halloween edition of our popular lecture series!
Get outside this weekend, and don’t forget to overeat!
