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!

Ottawa Art Scene: December 5 - 11

Tonight, the National Gallery of Canada has organized a lecture about the city of Ottawa by urban planner and historian David Gordon. The lecture is part of the Artist, Architects, and Artisans exhibition, now on view.

On Friday evening, there is an art show happening in an unlikely venue: a University of Ottawa chemical engineering laboratory. Breaking Point: The Exhibitionis a collaboration between the university’s Department of Visual Arts and Chemical and Biological Engineering, aiming to explore the potential for art to intervene in the space of engineering. Participating artists include Adrian Göllner, Kenneth Emig, Paul Hockett, and more.

If you’re interested in improving your photography skills, join Ottawa artist Justin Wonnacott for a workshop on still life photography at CUAG. Organized in conjunction with Laura Letinsky: Still Life Photographs, 1997-2012, the four-hour workshop will consist of discussions, group work, and hands-on practices.
