NATHALIE GRICE “La Forêt des Folies” EXHIBIT
August 18 – 31st
The installation, ‘La Forêt des Folies’ is intended as an exploration of Canadian wildlife through an urban cultural lens. Ottawa artist, Nathalie Grice asks the audience to look at trends of how we view and portray animals, and the effects that our obsessions and lifestyle have on the environment. Free to all. Art available for purchase.
We are so pleased to welcome artists Nate Nettleton (Ottawa) and Sherry Czekus (Toronto) to the gallery. Nettleton’s sculptural artworks explore the idea of constructing a physical representation of things that normally possess no physicality, while Czekus chooses painting as a conceptual medium, becoming one of the crowd, in these colourful canvases. A collection of new small works by David Lidbetter (Ottawa) will be showcased along with these pieces.
The Ottawa Art Gallery (OAG) will be joining us with some amazing outdoor, kid-focused fun. Catch them outside Wall Space for art-making activities.
