Leaving with a bang!

Our exhibition Lines in Nature| La nature des choses is soon coming to an end and we had decided early on to take part of La Fab’s Annual Fundraiser. It will take place the same night our show closes. So we’re throwing a party and what a better date than June 21 to celebrate La Fab’s achievements, the Solstice, our collaborative adventure and even Father’s Day. It’s a ticket-only event. Check out our flyer (you can click on it, it’s a PDF):

Liana Voia did interview most of the artists present and videos will soon be available on YouTube.

Installation day

The walls were still awaiting a fresh coat of paint but most of us were hard at work today to set up the show. Others had come in the previous weeks to set theirs up, knowing they couldn’t make it today.

Getting the word out there

Our show is appearing on the Ottawa Spotlight website. It is aimed at tourists and people living in the Ottawa Region looking for something good to do. If I’m not mistaken it is a partnership between the NCC, the City of Ottawa and the City of Gatineau. Here is hoping to get tons of visitors!
