Arteast Joins in Canada 150 Celebrations
Arteast is proud to present a special exhibition in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday. Using the Ottawa 150 logo design of a series of triangles arranged in the shape of the iconic maple leaf, thirty artists created paintings that represent Canada’s diversity in an explosion of colour and images. Artists used different mediums, such as acrylic, oil, watercolour, mixed media, encaustic, and photography to realize an amazing artwork. This giant maple leaf mosaic, 8 ft. by 8 ft., will be the dramatic focal point of the Canada Naturally/le Canada tout Naturellement exhibition. This special exhibition is part of the Ottawa-wide, multi-venue series of shows celebrating Canada’s sesquicentennial through landscape that will be taking place in the month of July. This venue features thirteen landscapes by Arteast members which capture aspects of the diversity and range of our natural wonders.
The opening reception for Canada Naturally/le Canada tout Naturellement will take place on Sunday, May 28, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on the ground floor of the Shenkman Arts Centre, 245 Centrum Boulevard, Orleans. The public is invited and admission is free.
The works of art in this exhibition showcase the varied media that Arteast members employ and are representative of the high quality of work produced by its membership. Arteast is a highly active, not-for-profit visual arts organization in Eastern Ontario. Membership in Arteast is open to artists, both amateur and professional, and to all who enjoy and want to participate in the visual arts.
