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

Sally Lee Sheeks:
Of Branches and Birds

March 6 – 31, 2018
Meet the Artist: 1:00 – 3:00 pm, March 18, 2018

Designed for the LaLande + Doyle Exhibition Space, Of Branches and Birds presents a series of drawings of birds - perched, or in flight - along with paper cutouts of branch motifs. The drawings are of varying sizes, produced in watercolour and graphite on reclaimed wood block with a resin varnish. The paper cutouts are suspended, creating shadow motifs on the wall. Minimalist and ethereal, Sally Lee Sheeks' work exudes a calming quality and evokes silence.

Sally Lee Sheeks appears at the Lalande + Doyle Exhibition Space through a collaboration between the Shenkman Arts Centre and CSArt Ottawa. CSArt Ottawa is a local arts production initiative based on the Community-Supported Agriculture, or 'farm share', model of food distribution. CSArt patrons subscribe to a season of local, multidisciplinary art, in which they meet the artists, support them, and in return, receive beautiful pieces of original artwork. Founded in March 2016, CSArt is gearing up for its third season, running from September 2018 to May 2019.

Gail Bourgeois + Giuliano Pirani: Morse Code Project

January 31 to February 25, 2018
Meet the artist event: February 11, 2018 - 1 pm to 3 pm 

The Morse Code Project presents more than two dozen inkjet prints created collaboratively by Gail Bourgeois and Giuliano Pirani. Produced in 2017, specifically for the LaLande + Doyle Exhibition Space, these works derive from the pervasive legacy of the cold war. Using pinhole photographs, drawings and media imagery as primary materials, these layered elements were highly processed and serve as the background to a final layer of coded text. The finished pieces present images that feel familiar and strange, captivating and horrifying.
