Hello Everyone:

The exhibit is official and here is the information.  Please join me to celebrate my book arts exhibit in January 2013.  It will be a nice way to start out the new year.  

Here are the particulars: 

January 7 - 27, 2013/Vernissage January 14, 2013 - 7:00 - 9:00 pm

LaLande + Doyle Exhibition Space, Lower Level
Shenkman Arts Centre, 245 Centrum Boulevard,
Ottawa, Ontario

Fund Fuels Passion for the Arts at the Shenkman Arts Centre

2012-13 ARTicipate Grant Recipients Announced

Ottawa, Ontario

AOE Arts Council has announced its 201213 ARTicipate Endowment Fund Grant
recipients. $66,405 has been awarded to 13 artists and arts organizations, and to the resident arts
partners, to support artistic activities, programming and services at the Shenkman Arts Centre.

“The recipients are all talented artists and arts organizations who are passionate about their projects,” says Heather Jamieson, president of AOE Arts Council. “The funding is a direct way to foster artistic innovation and spark creativity by encouraging groups and artists to make the most of the Centre’s professional spaces.”

Now in its third year, the ARTicipate Endowment Fund Grant Program has distributed $183,537 to date in grants to stimulate local arts activities, programming and services at the Shenkman Arts Centre.

New this year is the opportunity for visual artists to apply for an ARTicipate grant to exhibit in the
LaLande + Doyle Exhibition Space. Shenkman Arts Centre visitors will be able to interact with

A Show of Hands, an exhibit of creative books crafted by visual artist Mary Kritz, to be presented in early 2013.

“Visitors to the LaLande + Doyle Exhibition Space will be invited to interact with the artwork; something not ordinarily encouraged in a gallery setting,” says Kritz. “I am very thankful for receiving the ARTicipate grant and for the opportunity to show my book art at the Shenkman Arts Centre.”

“The ARTicipate Grant recipients are energizing the Centre with projects from a variety of artistic
disciplines that are actively engaging the public and connecting with local audiences,” Jamieson adds.

That is about all for now.  Hope to see you at the exhibit.
