Heather Dubreuil will have a solo show at the Atrium Gallery in Ottawa.
"My cityscapes show the radiant transformation of an everyday exterior through the expressive potential of colour. I create sensuous, aesthetic delight by a careful consideration of form and composition. I see my work in cloth and stitch as a contemporary expression of the culture of women's needlework."
For more information about Heather's work, please visit her website at www.heatherdubreuil.com.
The Atrium is part of the Ottawa Community Galleries network. Artists living within 150 km of Ottawa are eligible to apply to show their work in one of their many venues. For more information, visit http://ottawa.ca/en/residents/arts-culture-and-community/arts-theatre-music/community-galleries-selection. Deadline for the coming year is October 10, 2014.

Paintings & Drawings by Dorothy Grostern
Vernissage Sept 11th 5 to 8pm
Exhibition Continues until Sept 20th
My House Has Many Rooms is a unique exhibition, a behind the scenes, as it were, of the creation of a book by the same title; a collection of memories in the form of delicate and emotionally charged drawings, that on the pages of the book were woven into a visual narrative. Most of the works on display appear in the publication. The words that accompany the drawings in the book are absent here, the pictures left to tell their story. Do stop and listen.

With Chapters downtown about to close its doors, much of the conversation turned to what this closure would mean for Montreal's independent bookstores. It remains to be seen whether this is a sign of change to come.
One thing's for sure, though: Montreal is full of bookshops run by passionate and knowledgeable people who make a point of supporting the local arts community by selling writings and wares from Quebec authors and artisans, hosting readings and launches, and so much more.
This list from The Main is a great start to exploring Montreal's independent bookstores and stock up for your summer reading needs! Oh, and we would be remiss if we didn't add ELAN member Librairie Drawn + Quarterly to this bookstore itinerary.Read full...

Graffiti has always been art in the eye of some beholders, while for others it's an unwanted intrusion onto urban surfaces. This Montreal Gazette article explains how the City of Montreal is attempting to find a balance in its approach to dealing with graffiti, allowing youth to express themselves artistically through murals while still cleaning up tags that are the source of citizen complaints.
Even though some find it vexing, there's no question that graffiti can help youth to make meaningful connections with their communities and with each other. The Gazette piece mentions several inspiring examples of people helping youth to tap into graffiti's positive potential, including Melissa Proietti, coordinator of teen programs at Montreal's Point St-Charles YMCA who is also in charge of the Under Pressure graffiti festival.Read full...

ART VS. STATUS QUO // Mad, rad, tired of being had? On Friday January 30th 2015, Cabaret Tollé returns after its wildly successful inaugural edition last year to present an unconventional evening of visionary tantrums hosted by the unstoppable Peaches Lepage (Jordan Arseneault).
For 2015, Studio 303 will invite 9 RADICALLY UNDISCIPLINED ARTISTS to occupy the Sala Rossa for an evening of the rad, the mad, and the tired-of-being-had.
Can art still stimulate political action? What role can artists and activists play in convincing, seducing, and provoking responses to the political and social status quo? Offering a showcase for work inspired by social causes, rallying cries, demonstrations, teach-ins, die-ins, kiss-ins, we want to see what moves artists to take a stand, and invite our audience to stand with them.
