The fourth annual Centretown Art Tour is this weekend, on Sunday, September 12, 2010 from 10am to 5pm. A list of artists is available at the event's website, www.catwalkottawa.ca
There has been some turnover in the artists and locations from last year.
I went last year, and had posted about it beforehand.
Since I didn't get around to posting my photos from last year, now's a good time to do so to drum up some interest.
Here's a photo of Ellen Sloan, whose art consists of pottery such as these bowls and cups. Ellen is back on this year's tour.
It's interesting to see how people decorate their homes. For example, one artist's postal code was written out in their front garden with stones:
Nicole Beaumont, also on the tour again this year, showed off the room she uses as her studio. Not only do the walls have boards for hanging paintings, but she has attached drop cloths to the lower part of the walls that fold up when not in use, as you can see behind her in this photo taken near the end of a long day for her:
The part that fascinates me most about the CATwalk is to be able to get into some of Centretown's beautiful homes. Here's a neat stairway:
And here's an emergency exit walkway that bridges the driveway between two houses:
It's free, fun, and local, so go check out the CATwalk!
In addition to this special Saturday post, this week's usual Monday and Friday posts will be joined by additional content. There's lots of stuff going on in Centretown!
