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.
Remixed Call for Artists – 2017
Remixed (formally Chinatown Remixed) is a month long festival of art and community that takes place in and around businesses in Chinatown and on Somerset St W. Selected artists will be partnered with participating businesses to display art throughout the festival, thus remixing everyday restaurants, shops, cafes, salons, and alleyways into non-traditional art spaces.
The opening celebration/vernissage will take place from during the day on Saturday September 16th – rain or shine. All artists will be expected to be present in their partner business during the opening for a minimum of 2 hours. Thanks to our sponsors and the City of Ottawa, all artists will receive an honorarium for their participation.
This project is organized by the Remixed Collective (RC). We are an volunteer, Ottawa- based not-for-profit art collective, and our mission is to nurture Ottawa’s diverse arts communities. If you have any questions about the submissions process, get in touch via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Submissions are due Friday August 25th, 11:59 PM EST
