Vernissage: Continuum - Karsh Award artists welcome a new generation

September 14, 2017 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. Curator: Melissa RomboutArtists: Joi T. Arcand, AM Dumouchel, Leslie Hossack, Olivia Johnston, Julia Martin, Meryl McMaster and Ruth SteinbergTour with the curator: Sunday, September 24, 2 pmThis special exhibition honours the artistic legacy of Yousuf and Malak Karsh while continuing an inter-generational chain of mentorship that fosters camera-based innovation."Continuum is a project based on connecting many moments in time. It was conceived as a way to celebrate a new wave of emerging Ottawa artists during Canada's sesquicentennial year. Recipients of the City of Ottawa's prestigious Karsh Award were invited to choose a local Ottawa artist working with photography as a medium, a relative newcomer to stand in the spotlight...The Karsh photographers, innovators stylistically, gracious in comportment and masters of film-based photography, would no doubt be astonished and delighted by the myriad of camera-based practices in this exhibition, and their roles as progenitors of a chain of connection radiating outward. These common threads of welcome entwine here." - Excerpt from the essay by Melissa Rombout. 110 Laurier Avenue WestOttawa, ON K1P 1J1.. Event Details. Location: 110 Laurier Avenue West, Ottawa
