Diary of Events and Happenings in Ottawa, Ontario.


Pause by Ariel Lyons

June 4, 2021 to June 20, 2021 Friday: 12:00 pmSaturday: 12:00 pmSunday: 12:00 pm . Galerie Old Chelsea is pleased to present the oil paintings of Ariel Lyons, a painter who has taken the past year to devote many more hours than usual to the studio. This has led her to develop new artistic ideas and to apply them beautifully to our local landscape and to those who have left a deep impression on her. These many hours have led her to a more profound exploration of the importance of the elements of line, shape and colour. She has deepened her ability to use them and has become adept at this artistic language. She shows us how to dance to a new level with "line, shape and colour", increasing her range in applying these to her semi-abstract and abstract paintings. All of Ariel's paintings inspire a deep sense of calm and harmony while also conveying a feeling of aliveness and spontaneity. One should not miss seeing these paintings in person. . 783 Route 105Old Chelsea, QC J9B 1P1 .. Event Details. Location: 783 Route 105Old Chelsea, QC J9B 1P1 , Ottawa

Marble Strikes Moon; A New Show of Paintings

May 27, 2021 7:00 pm . Marble Strikes Moon features work from six emerging and established painters working across Ottawa, Montreal, and Toronto. The exhibition is centred around new questions in contemporary painting. The artists examine, reimagine, and reinterpret how representational paintings work; that is, the artists explore how and why artists paint things: people, places, and experiences. In this rich territory, the artists pull a variety of interests and processes together in the act of weaving meaning into paint. Running parallel throughout the exhibition is the importance of the painting medium. The artists build on technical proficiency, search for new ways of painting, and open up unexpected moments in the estuary where paint and subject matter meet. The artists are driven by the excitement of the painting act and a search for freshness in an age-old medium. . --, ON - .. Event Details. Location: --, ON - , Ottawa

The artists' desire to care for the environment means that no new art supplies were purchased. Chelsea even uses reclaimed framing materials. . 783 Route 105Old Chelsea, QC J9B 1P1 .. Event Details.
