New Art Show: The Year of the Horse

The Year of the Horse - A group art show curated by Christiane Kingsley and Luminita Serbanescu

Today, two of my friends and I hung 40 paintings by 6 Ottawa artists at Cafe Angelina, near the popular Byward Market. The show is called "The Year of the Horse" and includes several paintings of horses and several with a Chinese feel. Such a colorful and vibrant show with something for every taste!

There will be a Meet the Artists reception on Sunday, Feb. 9th, from 3 to 5 where all six featured artists will be present:
Marie Arsenault, Elisabeth Arbuckle, Dhanashri Bapat, Christiane Kingsley, Luminita Serbanescu and Sawsan Shorbajee.

My "horse" entry for the show is a pewter and acrylic piece, of an Estrucan horse from a statuette in the British Museum. It is one of a pair....the other, facing in the other direction, and with different hand embossing, is currently on display at the Kevin Dodds gallery at 1101 Bank St. Ottawa.
 If you are in Ottawa for Winterlude, please drop in and see the show at 11 Murray St,. about two hundred yards from the National Arts Gallery of Canada.
