ENTERING A NEW YEAR WITH REMNANTS OF THE OLD



ONE FOGGY NIGHT - November 30, 2016 - MacKenzie King Bridge 

It was rush hour on a foggy November night.  People moved with intention through the fog, seeking the number of their bus ride that would take them home.  While some were oblivious to the beauty around them, others stopped to enjoy the hazy shroud around their city.  


The buses moved quickly, loading and unloading their precious cargo.  They came frequently picking up the new comers and the stragglers. 


Rain fell through the misty haze coating everything with a slick, shiny sheen, adding to the evening's beauty. 



The new Ottawa Art Gallery rising from the old parking lot. This large skeleton, when completed, will  house future art and artists.  It will be opening in the fall of 2017.  

FIGUREWORKS EXHIBIT - NOVEMBER 28 to DECEMBER 4, 2016 

The Figureworks Exhibit is an international exhibit occurring annually in Ottawa.  It is juried and prizes are awarded to exhibiting artists.  The vernissage was very well attended and this year the recorded number of visitors exceeded previous years' attendance.  


This is my artist book in the exhibit.  It is quite a large piece and the curator ensured the piece was beautifully displayed and lit.  We used a plinth and secured a large circular table top to it which was then covered with a black cloth. This allowed us to extend the four tunnels and display the top and bottoms as well.  

 
One of the visitors viewing the piece, looking at the heart of the work.  His wife, a local artist, expressed her interest in the work as well. 


This painting was exhibited on the wall beside my work.  A nice complement to each other's work. 


This piece was hung behind my work.  A very unique piece. 


These were some other paintings that were included in the exhibit.  Exhibitors chosen for this exhibit came from Canada, Brazil, China and the United States.  

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CANADA - 150 YEARS OLD 

Canada is 150 years old.  Stay tuned for exciting celebrations and new creations throughout the year.  It should be a very exciting year, especially in Ottawa. 

If you have any questions about my work, wish to enquire about commissioning some work or where work can be purchased, please contact me at: bbinder999@gmail.com. 

Wishing you a happy and prosperous 2017.
