Klara Bruehlmann - Retrospection

December 15, 2017 to February 14, 2018

Klara Bruehlmann has been a member of the Ottawa Guild of Potters for over 25 years, focusing on seasonal pieces that bring life to our summer gardens and Christmas festivities. She is the winner of several recent awards, including People’s Choice award. Early inspiration came from her first teachers, Richard Gill and Jim Thompson, and the many workshops offered through Ottawa and the surrounding areas.

An avid and dedicated teacher for many children in the Ottawa area for the past 16 years, her work is in no doubt also influenced by their curiosity and imagination.

Klara’s playful pieces in a variety of clays are often touched with the notable influence of her Swiss heritage to combine memories from the heimatland with those of Canada.

Upcoming Exhibition dates:

Marney McDiarmid - February 16, 2018 to April 18, 2018
Andre Breau - April 20, 2018 to June 20, 2018

Mark Leger
Marc Léger: Lines, Outaouais Series


January 6 – 28, 2018

The Lines, Outaouais Series exhibition borrows imagery from the four seasons of 2017, capturing and halting their passing beauty, if only for a moment. These oil landscapes border on the abstract and highlight the lines, which, in a subtle or dynamic way, compose and divide space. Each of the more than fifty works making up the series seizes upon the transience of the Outaouais landscapes and frames them in a moment in time. The series sets the scene for an intimate and personal encounter with the banks of the Great River.
 
Meet the Artist: 1 pm to 3 pm, January 7, 2018
