Travel SOUVENIRS de voyages
Artist René Rivard started drawing in earnest at 14 and has never stopped producing art. After teaching for five years, he studied fine arts at the École des Beaux-Arts de Montréal (UQAM).
Various day jobs helped to pay the rent, these were mostly in the field of mental health with a special focus on services for the Deaf and
hard of hearing.
René loves to travel. He photographs landscapes, especially mountains which he then transforms into paintings.
The artist seldom exhibits his works and is thankful to Claude Jobin who facilitated this exhibition.
Join Rene and Claude at Shanghai Restaurant, Wednesday August 23rd 6pm – 10pm.

Ravenswing Ottawa is a volunteer-run, self-sustaining grassroots collective that supports and promotes arts, music and community in Centretown Ottawa.
Ravenswing Ottawa’s key annual event is the Ravenswing Arts + Music Fair, which is held the last Sunday of May and features local artisans, live music and free skill-sharing workshops. The event is partnered with the Clothesline Project, a public art exhibit run by Ottawa’s Women’s Event Network that speaks out against violence directed towards women and children.
Throughout the year, Ravenswing Ottawa holds fundraisers to cover operating costs of the Fair. The fundraisers are organized to include celebrations of art, music and community through activities like craft workshops, games and live performances.
