At the end of May I hung my solo exhibition at the Blackburn Hamlet Library called “Beauty in Your Neighbourhood”. Following is the press release:
Kerstin Peters – Exhibition of Landscape Paintings
Title: Beauty in Your Neighbourhood
Blackburn Hamlet Library, in conjunction with Arteast, is proud to present an exhibition of landscape paintings by Kerstin Peters. This solo show is titled “Beauty in Your Neighbourhood”and runs from May 28 to July 23,2016. In this exhibition, Kerstin Peters demonstrates that you do not have to travel far to see the beauty in nature. She sees the “neighbourhood” not necessarily defined as only a local spot, but as a metaphor for the beauty that is all around us.
Kerstin Peters is part of several plein air painting groups, and many of her paintings are from outings to places in Ontario and Quebec. These trips, as well as paint-outs in the Ottawa area, were her inspiration for this exhibition. As most of her plein air paintings are smaller, the majority of the paintings exhibited were created in her studio.
This exhibition encourages you to pay attention and look around you. You will find that your neighbourhood has lots of beautiful spots to offer.
This is a unique opportunity for the public to enjoy, encourage and support artists in their local community as well as the Blackburn Hamlet Library.
Location: Blackburn Hamlet branch of the Ottawa Public Library, 199 Glenpark, Ottawa K1B 5B8
Hours: Monday to Thursday: 10 - 20:30, Friday: 13:00 - 18:00, Saturday: 10:00- 17:00, Sunday: closed.
As always, I take July off to get myself ready for the fall semester and the next year. As my courses basically run from September to June with only short breaks for Christmas and in March, I usually plan my business year accordingly.
I also like to use the time to finish some of my oil paintings in the comfort of my garden patio.
The new City of Ottawa programme will be out at the beginning of August. However, I can already let you know the schedule for my “Painting like Famous Artists” for adults: Please look under TEACHING for details.
I will offer a Creativity & Me felting workshop on June 22, and a two-part teddy bear workshop on August 10 and 24, 2016. For more information and for a photo please check under TEACHING.
I am also available to organize painting parties for all kinds of occasions for you, whether it is a birthday party, a wedding shower, a get together with friends. I can either come to your house or I will find a restaurant for the party. If you would like more information, please click here.
