MARCH 2017 - Barbara Davis
"I am a self-taught artist. Born and raised in Ottawa, Ontario. I have always been up to something creative ever since I can remember. I have been painting for about 20 years. I love experimenting with colour, texture and different forms of media. I enjoy listening to the feedback that I receive from people on how they interpret my work and how it makes them feel. I have been a part of Chinatown Remixed, the Lumiere festival and have shown my work in different venues in Ottawa. More recently, GigPace Gallery and the Dovercourt Community Centre. I also enjoy giving back and supporting my community. I have donated to various fundraisers and charitable organizations within Ottawa."

December 2015: Timothy Hunt
Another Conversation I Do Not Wish To Have"
Recent Assemblages by Timothy Hunt
When I start to work on a piece of art, I never know what is going to happen. Newspaper clippings, old magazines, bits of discarded metal and electronics all come together to make something entirely new. Whether it is sculpture, collage or drawing and painting, I'm always mystified by the creative process. I get a big charge out of the act of introducing materials and characters that might not ordinarily meet; for instance, a mathemetician cut from a magazine, and a pewter unicorn. Sometimes it makes me laugh out loud.
"Hunt...has transformed this junk into something wholly different from its constituent parts, and the results are ingenious."
- Peter Simpson, The Ottawa Citizen
