Today, two of my friends and I hung 40 paintings by 6 Ottawa artists at Cafe Angelina, near the popular Byward Market. The show is called "The Year of the Horse" and includes several paintings of horses and several with a Chinese feel. Such a colorful and vibrant show with something for every taste!
There will be a Meet the Artists reception on Sunday, Feb. 9th, from 3 to 5 where all six featured artists will be present:
Marie Arsenault, Elisabeth Arbuckle, Dhanashri Bapat, Christiane Kingsley, Luminita Serbanescu and Sawsan Shorbajee.
My "horse" entry for the show is a pewter and acrylic piece, of an Estrucan horse from a statuette in the British Museum. It is one of a pair....the other, facing in the other direction, and with different hand embossing, is currently on display at the Kevin Dodds gallery at 1101 Bank St. Ottawa.
