Place: Carlingwood Library
281 Woodroffe Ave, Ottawa, ON
Time: Executive Meeting 12:30 - 1:45
Critique 2:00 - 4:00 pm
We have invited Marilyn Smith, a multi-media artist, well experienced in watercolour, and a past juror for the OWS, to share her experience and guide us in critically exploring our own artwork. She has trained under well-known artists, has a B.A. in Fine Arts, and has taught art for many years.
This event is free and all members are welcome and are asked to bring 1-2 artworks, framed or unframed, to be explored in more depth for strengths and vulnerabilities, to learn how to more effectively examine one's own work.
This event will follow our OWS Executive meeting, which will start at 12:30 pm. All members are welcome to attend this meeting. We are extending a special invitation to the Award winners from the 81st exhibition to receive their awards directly following the meeting around 2:00 pm. We invite you to bring the paintings associated with those awards to show the group.
Light refreshments will be available.
