Art in Strathcona Park

August 14, 2006

Yesterday was Art in Strathcona Park. Artists from around the Ottawa region set up booths to display their wares. There is a wide selection of different types of work from paintings, photography, drawing, glasswork, metalwork, bas-reliefs, pottery, dolls and clothing.

These are a few of the things I picked up.

I got a series of three prints from Andrew King. He lives in Ottawa but is originally from Kingston. I’ve seen Andrew’s work before at art shows and I really love his clean lines and use of colour. His website doesn’t remotely do his work justice.

These were two of the prints:

Deb Stagg is a black and white photographer from Kingston. She adds tints to the b&w photography by hand and it look very cool. We got two prints of the baby squirrel Spitz inside of a bowl and they look awesome.

Here are some samples of her work.

Adrianne Kinsella (also from Kingston) does some very interesting glasswork with candle holders, vases, salt-and-pepper shakers, and vases. What I love most is the small details she adds to the designs: the ladybugs, frogs and monkeys.

We got an orange candleholder with a brown earthly woman figure on it. Here is a picture of a similar piece using white on blue.

I seem to have a thing for Kingston artists. I’ll definitely be going again next year.
