Maryse Hatchard
at Luna Sole until October 25th

Maryse Hatchard is our current featured artist at Luna Sole, offering a last burst of summer colour with her larger than life floral watercolours. Although her education and work history is in the field of Medical Research, Maryse has always been drawn to the visual arts.
She has taken courses in watercolour for many years and is now in a position to pass on some of this wonderful knowledge. She offers classes in her studio space as well as classes during the lunch hour in elementary schools. In recent years Maryse has been looking into the art health connection, "bringing health and wellness through creative processes". This she says, "will be a wonderful new chapter" for her. The show will be on at Luna Sole until October 25th.

Luna Sole is located in the mall at Jeanne d'Arc Boulevard and Laverendrye Drive (opposite the Bob McQuarrie Centre) and is open every day for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and drinks.

This is a unique opportunity for the public to enjoy, encourage and support artists in their local community as well as the Blackburn Hamlet Library.

Arteast Seeks Administrative Assistant - Job Posting

Arteast is taking steps to hire its first employee-a part-time Administrative Assistant. In addition to needing volunteers to run our exhibitions and programs, Arteast needs an employee to help the Treasurer and some of the Coordinators with certain tasks. Thanks to an operating grant for 2016 from the City of Ottawa, Arteast is now in a position to hire someone. I must emphasize, however, that Arteast will continue to need the help of volunteers in all areas of activity. So please don't hesitate to step forward to help.

The Administrative Assistant position will, of course, be open to all members of Arteast. However, it will also be open to non-members and steps are being taken to advertise this opportunity at large. So, if any of you are interested in becoming Arteast's first employee, we welcome your application. Details are in the job posting in the link below. The deadline is 15 September 2016.
