Art Abounds (Again!) in Almonte

This coming Saturday, April 11, there are not one but two exhibitions opening in downtown Almonte, featuring not two but six artists! Everyone is invited to come and see contemporary sculpture, paintings and ceramics, and to meet the artists who created them.

On April 11, from 2-4pm, General Fine Craft, Art & Design features Ottawa artist Cynthia O’Brien and her ceramic garden installation entitled from down under.

A short jaunt up the street brings you to Sivarulrasa Studio & Gallery for the opening of the group show Spring Voices from 3–6pm. It features work by Barbara Gamble, Joseph Pearce, Deborah Arnold, Eliane Saheurs and Jean Morrow.

About the Galleries

General Fine Craft, Art & Design exhibits and sells the work of over 120 highly skilled, innovative makers. The bright, open space is designed to showcase functional and non-functional fine craft and art from artists working in Ontario and Quebec. Gallery owners Chandler Swain and Richard Skrobecki are both recognized studio potters with many years of experience making and promoting their own distinctive styles of work.

from down under invites us into a garden installation that Cynthia O’Brien has re-created from the “physical memory” of her studio residency experience in Australia. Meet the artist and visit The General’s back space gallery to explore her meaning for yourself. Her work will be on display until April 25.

Spring-VoicesCardLocated in the heart of Almonte’s arts community, Sivarulrasa Studio & Gallery hosts curated exhibits and also features owner Sanjeev Sivarulrasa’s ongoing photographic and mixed media works. Everyone is invited to meet the artists and enjoy an afternoon of fine art, complimentary refreshments, and a musical performance by The Fine Tuners — a delightful ensemble of young violinists from the Ottawa Suzuki Strings school.

The following Saturday (April 18) boasts yet another opening — this time in the new Stairwell Gallery at the Old Post Office, featuring works by Diana Jackson and Leah Hicks. More details to follow in a future post!
