Richard Ahnert: Far and Wide

September 9, 2017 to September 23, 2017Monday: 10:00 amTuesday: 10:00 amWednesday: 10:00 amThursday: 10:00 amFriday: 10:00 amSaturday: 10:00 amSunday: 10:00 am. Join us for the opening of Far and Wide, Saturday, September 9, 5 to 7 pm.In his newest series "Far and Wide", Richard Ahnert further explores the Canadiana narrative. The body of work continues to invoke the nostalgic romanticism of the wildlife and people that make this vast land home.The show draws heavily on Canadian iconography and nature symbolism. Like in most of Ahnert's work, animals are shown as oddly displaced from their habitats and realities. Voluntary or forced, their departure preludes a new social order, one that is marked by the inevitable displacement and subdual of animal life via humans.This series poignantly emphasizes the sanctity of our precious Canadian land and its inhabitants, while also alluding to the harsh realities that inevitably follow from human intervention. The work not only celebrates our glorious heritage and the beauty of the Canadian landscape, but often reminds us of our own folly.Gallery hours:Monday to Friday, 10 am to 6 pmSaturday, 10 am to 5 pmSunday, 11 am to 4 pm. 358 Richmond RoadOttawa, ON K2A 0E8..

Beethoven’s Ninth

September 20, 2017 to September 21, 2017Wednesday: 8:00 pmThursday: 8:00 pm. Copland - Fanfare for the Common ManCopland - Appalachian SpringBeethoven - Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125, "Choral"A hymn to our common humanity in times of war and ethnic strife, Beethoven's Ode to Joy remains as relevant today as the day it was first performed. After struggling for years to compose his masterpiece, Beethoven never heard it — he was completely deaf by the time it premiered in 1824. Now, nearly two centuries later, the hope expressed in the chorus still resonates: that joy shall bind us together, though customs tear us apart. In an uncertain world, feel the uplifting power of Beethoven's immortal Ninth Symphony.. 53 Elgin StreetOttawa, ON K1P 5W1.. Event Details. Location: 53 Elgin Street, Ottawa
