We may have missed the openings on some of these, but there is much art to be had around town these days.
Marc Adornato's "La Kapitale" is back by popular demand at the Starbucks at 362 Elgin (that's the one by the Jack Purcell Community Centre). Show runs 'til the end of the month.
Joe Fidia has a show, "Mornings Like These," (pictured, Late Morning Light) on at the Dale Smith Gallery (137 Beechwood Ave). From the looks of things, it's very early-Canadian romantic paintings combined with an almost Rotoscoping effect. I quite like it, actually. Show's on until April 28.
La Petite Mort Gallery (there's always something on at La Petite Mort, 306 Cumberland) presents the latest show from Inked Kenny. Here's the description: For most, ‘kinky' only exists' in the attic of our minds. Dim light, cob-web covered, creaky floors, forgotten dreams - a dark erotica. Something to be found. Something to be yearned. Something to be taken aback by. ‘Kink' is another world. A subversive world which knocks at our imaginary door. Probing, touching, tasting, biting, pleading, conceding. So, enjoy from now until the 26th.
The Council for the Arts in Ottawa (2 Daly Ave) has a Patrick Cocklin show on until June 5th.
Artist Patricia Kirby invites you to see her tree portraits combining a variety of media on wood panel, including watercolour, pastel and photos. This show takes place at The Table Restaurant/Gallery (1230 Wellington St. at the corner of Holland) until April 26.
Chris Browne's "Postcards of Ottawa: images that transcend tourism" is on at Vina Del Mare Chilean Restaurant (1079 Wellington St. W.) till April 19.
Rozemarijn Oudejans, Mary Kritz, Tim Lash and Hans Blokpoel's "meditations / personifications" looks through the lens at elements of our natural world which bring a sense of wonder, tell a story or draw parallels between themselves - and ourselves. The exhibit continues until April 12 at arts & architecture (1181 Bank Street).
Hot Cup Café (1133 Concession St., Russell) presents another of their Art & Java events. This time it's Carol Rowland-Ulmann's "Linoleum Engravings" 'til April 30 2009.
A selection of Inuit Prints and Wallhangings will be on display at the
Ottawa School of Art, Orleans Campus Gallery (1490 Youville Drive) until April 19, 2009. The works are from the Inuit Artists' Shop, a non-profit business owned and operated by the Inuit Art Foundation.
John Latour's "Halcyon Daysze," which reflects the artist's fascination for the ways in which we connect with the past, and how this activity is mediated through objects, texts, and images, is on at the Karsh-Masson Gallery (136 St. Patrcik St) until May 3rd.
