We are currently raising funds for Beverley Sunday and her husband Joseph Sayer who were in a car accident on Feb 19. They are still in hospital recovering and both have suffered massive head trauma. In an effort to keep their three young children safe and cared for, and to keep their family home running, we have created a trust fund and are in the process of raising funds to support them throughout their long recovery. Please send on this invite to anyone you know who likes to buy art (we have some amazing donations), or simply come to show your support. The entertainment will be provided by David Finkle and snacks supplied by Aboriginal Experiences. Some of the artwork is being previewed at The Sweetgrass Bistro (on Murray street) this week. All proceeds will go to the Sunday-Sayer Family Fund to cover the basic running costs of their home and care for their children. There will be a $5 entry fee at the door...please come and support our efforts.

Ottawa Revisited - Marc Adornato solo show
Wildly popular digital photo restoration series, now up at The Second Cup on Bank Street (773 Bank at 2nd Ave in the Glebe) for the entire month of April.
Spring has arrived at Gallery Farina with a new exhibition of David Houlton's floral paintings. Houlton's work can best be described as Romantic Expressionism. His objective is to create a still life of plants and flowers together with figure studies that are a presence, not a background. Inspiration is taken from Michelangelo’s quote, “All good paintings start with the figure.” Gallery Farina is located upstairs at Johnny Farina Restaurant, 216 Elgin Street, Ottawa. "Expressions of Spring" runs from March 28 to May 30.
