`Points of View` Seven Artists focus on Champlain Lookout
By: Karole Marois (2010/02/09)
Seven artists bring their unique styles and perspectives to interpret one iconic subject -- the Champlain Lookout in Gatineau Park. Points of View at Ottawa's Cube Gallery features the works of:
Jay Anderson, John Jarrett, Olaf Krassnitzky, Pina Manoni-Rennick, Karole Marois, Paul Schibli and Karl Schutt
This group of artists met every Friday beginning with the seasonal opening of the park on May 1st, 2009, to paint or photograph this popular vista. By depicting the same subject from spring to winter, the artists watched and documented how the park changed week by week. Their mixed media works have been arranged in chronological order to illustrate these changes of mood, season, colour and environment. Some of these changes are magically subtle, others dramatic, all are captivating and breathtaking. Here is a glimpse of the artists at work in the Spring
"Points of View is more than a collection of panoramic representations," says curator and gallery owner, Don Monet. "This exhibition of Belvédère Champlain underscores the crucial importance of preserving a vast natural territory which greatly contributes to and enhances the quality of life in the Ottawa-Gatineau region."
Vernissage and meet the artists Sunday Feb. 7, 2 to 5 pm. Free.
