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.

Shirley Moulton
at Luna Sole August September, 2016

Displays Variety in Style and Media

The new exhibition at Luna Sole restaurant is varied both in content and media. Shirley Moulton creates in oil, pastel, gouache, water colour, pen and ink, and graphite pencil. Her subject matters vary from landscape and florals to portraits of humans and animals. This exhibit features a very dominant rooster presiding over florals and landscapes. Shirley has been exhibiting for over two decades in the Ottawa area and belongs to several art organizations, not least Arteast.

For this exhibition, she is also offering a special discount if more than two pieces are purchased.

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.

Christine Blais exhibition of Encaustic Paintings
July 23rd to September 24th, 2016

Blackburn Hamlet Library in conjunction with Arteast is proud to present an exhibition of encaustic paintings by Christine Blais. This solo show is titled "A Romantic Self-Destruction: Aesthetic Forms and Their Opposites" and runs from July 23rd to September 24th, 2016.

These encaustic works explore the use of tar as it is applied to wax to construct aesthetic images of the human form. By using a medium that is considered unappealing and representative of our global reliance on crude oil, then transforming it into an aesthetically pleasing object, the focus is placed on the polarity and conflict that exists between these two objects. In all the beauty of human life, we find an ugly self-destruction.

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.

This exhibition encourages you to pay attention and look around you. You will find that your neighbourhood has lots of beautiful spots to offer.

Library hours are: Monday to Thursday: 10 - 8:30, Friday: 1:00 - 6:00, Saturday: 10:00- 5:00, Sunday: closed
