St Laurent Library Exhibition
Helene Lacelle and Peter Evanchuck

Helene Lacelle and Peter Evanchuck

St-Laurent Library, in conjunction with Arteast, is proud to present an exhibition of images by local artists Helene Lacelle and Peter Evanchuck. This show is titled Marvellous Realism and runs from June 28 to September 27, 2019.

In this interesting exhibit, the artists combine the traditional use of photography and painting with modern computer capabilities to enhance and create something unique for the viewer. For example, homes undergoing decay and abandonment due to economic crisis are made beautiful using these techniques. Evanchuck’s photography is thus enhanced with Lacelle’s paint and brush, and then further developed with the use of computer image enhancement. Images were shot primarily in New Brunswick and in the Perth area of Ontario.

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

Location: St-Laurent branch of the Ottawa Public Library, 515 Côté Street , Ottawa K1K 0Z8

Hours: Monday to Thursday: 10:00 – 8:30, Friday: 1:00 – 6:00, Saturday: 10:00- 5:00, Sunday:  closed
