Here are some interesting art-related posts from the local blogosphere to begin your Wednesday.

Upcoming art shows

Councillor Tim Tierney notes on his blog that the work of some of Ottawa’s best young artists will be displayed throughout the city in late April and May. (See here for schedule).

The Big Beat has a post on Art Battle Ottawa that is taking place this Sunday, May 5, at Arts Court Theatre at 2 Daly Avenue.  The event kicks off at 7 pm.

“'Art Battle 52' is coming to Ottawa for the first time, after 51 skirmishes in other cities," says The Big Beat. "The on-stage events, with local painters 'battling' on canvas in front of an audience, are held monthly in Toronto, Vancouver and Halifax, and could soon become a monthly event in Ottawa, Montreal, Hamilton and Saint John, N.B."

Photography projects and news

Ottawa Start blog writes about an interesting project by local photographer Stephen Harrison who is taking pictures of trash that he found along Poole Creek in Stittsville.  

For his part, Patrick John Mills has posted a great story of finding some lost etchings dated 1972 of St. Andrews United Church in Williamstown, approximately 100 miles from Ottawa.  "There were low run, only six of one and seven of the other had been printed," reads the post.  After making some enquiries the prints will be donated to the Church.

TheheARTbeatgal, meanwhile, has a slideshow from Northern Scene on a show of designers from Canada's north.  Finally, Ottawa photographer Tony Fouhse writes on his blog that he has been invited to the Big Apple by The New York Times: see here and here.


Claudia Salguero is offering workshops on Corel Painter on May 4 and 5, as well as next September.  Click here and here for details.
