PATRICK MIKHAIL GALLERY is pleased to present CORONAE, an exhibition of new works by photo-based conceptual artist ANDREW WRIGHT.
In CORONAE, Andrew Wright continues his investigation into current and historical photographic technologies, and interrogates their use in describing the environments that comprise the world around us. This new series of large-scale works takes up and challenges conventional understandings and uses of photographic materials, procedures, and functions, and contributes to the contemporary discourse on photography. Wright’s lustrous and at times indeterminant images present paradoxical references to the macroscopic and microscopic, as well as photographic realms as disparate as interstellar space and the cellular. In part an homage to, and questioning of, the tradition of camera-less image production, the works function to challenge the ways we perceive and recognize shape and form— and, in a contemporary context, advance the notions associated with Gestalt theories of perception and visual organization. By employing multiple photographic technologies and optics, Wright’s CORONAE deconstructs and reconstructs images that sit on the edge of possibility, encouraging us to look at the overlooked, find energy in the
void, and feel the movement, time, and space of an intangible landscape.

SEE YOURSELF WHEN ALL IS NEW at RED WALL GALLERY
Artist: Michelle Wilson
Vernissage: Friday March 11th, 2011, 18:00 - 21:00
On View: March 11th - April 9th, 2011
Mon - Fri 10:00 -18:00, Sat 10:00-15:00
Traveling photo-based artist Michelle Wilson explores personal narratives through images found abroad in this collection of new works sent from Taiwan.
See Yourself When All is New is a mix of large iconic images of often-unseen monuments, deceptively pastoral seeming landscapes and intimately scaled diptychs that tell a quieter more personal parallel narrative. All of these elements come together in an intersection of historical, personal and public stories.
The Red Wall Gallery is located in SPAO at 168 Dalhousie, at the corner of Bruyère, in the Byward Market.

Read on and you'll find out why.
Marylee Laing has called her upcoming show "Frozen Charlottes" (yes its a true story).This Friday, March 11th, 6 - 9 pm. You can hear it straight from the artist's mouth at 7.30 pm.
But Marylee has got more up her sleeve than a shocking story: three different mediums. 1) (first clue) 19C. ceramic on glass, 2) abstract acrylics on canvas, 3) contemporary art glass mosaic.
If you want a peek at the story then here's the link and you'll get to see some of Marylee's new works.
Even better, come out this Friday for a little shock and shiver (and then warm up with inspiring art, great company and maybe a wee glass...)

The Great Crohn’s Crusade is a fund-raiser event organized and hosted by Ottawa Rickshaws to raise money for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) research and to raise awareness for such illnesses. It is officially endorsed by the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC) to which all funds will be donated. It will be Ottawa’s first and only major IBD fund-raiser. Crohn's Disease is an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system attacks the gastrointestinal tract causing inflammation. It causes serious chronic pain that can last for life. There is no cure and it can take a long period of time to put the disease into remission. 1 in every 160 Canadians has an IBD.
On March 12th, 2011 Ottawa Rickshaws will be hosting a silent auction from 7pm to 10 pm. The auction will take place at La Petite Mort Gallery where the public will be given the opportunity to bid on rickshaw runners. Bidders will be informed of each runner's strengths and weaknesses so they can bid accordingly. The winners of each bid will be permitted to participate in a rickshaw scavenger hunt across Ottawa. The auction event will also have food and drinks, a raffle, and a donation jar.

André is a video installation that includes five monitors placed one on top of the other, presenting one main character. He is filmed from head to toe, but shown in five different parts. The viewer’s perception of the character is thus desynchronized, the latter
evolving in lasting time.
As for Casier, it includes 12 monitors showing 12 teenagers filmed for 3 minutes in front of a locker. The artwork, projected repetitively, is seen as a complex mosaic and an original choreography, but the viewer is soon aware of the actors’ discomfort, because they are
confronted to the camera.
The opening of the exhibition will be held on Saturday, March 12 at 1 p.m. Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle is located at 81 Beechwood Avenue, in Vanier. The gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday to Saturday.
March 13th – Nostalgia de la Luz (Nostalgia for the Light)
(2010, dir Patricio Guzmán, France/Germany/Chile)
Chile's Atacama Desert is the driest place on earth. For astronomers, its high altitude and aridity provide the ideal atmosphere to peer into space and attempt to answer questions about the universe. Near the telescopes, a group of women sift through sand on a very different search – looking for bones and body parts of loved ones, the "disappeared" from the Pinochet dictatorship. Renowned ex-pat Chilean filmmaker Patricio Guzmán explores the paradoxes of these parallel quests in this meditative tour-de-force. Winner of the Prix Arte for Best Documentary at the European Film Awards.
Café Molo (upstairs), 745 Riverside Dr., Wakefield (corner of River Road and Valley Drive). Sunday screenings 5 pm & 7:30 pm.

“Fold Crumple Crush: The Art of El Anatsui” is a powerful portrait of the Ghanaian artist who is acclaimed internationally for his gorgeous and opulent wall hangings. These shimmering metallic “tapestries,” made entirely from discarded metal bottle-tops that are laboriously flattened and stitched together with copper wire, evoke the Ghanaian practice of weaving and assembling the vivid fabrics known as kente cloths.
