MEDIA ARTISTS/CURATORS - HELENE LACELLE & PETER EVANCHUCK - new show 'ART-TWO' - CHEZ LUCIEN



Media artists, HELENE LACELLE & PETER EVANCHUCK have a new show at Chez Lucien for ur visual dining pleasure.... starts this Friday and ends the end of Sept

LACELLE & EVANCHUCK are creative and life partners who collaborate on all creative media - presently they have several shows running from Ontario to N.S. and beyond having had work in England, USA and Italy.

Recently they completed a DOCUDRAMEDY titled THE SEARCH for a BEAUTIFUL BACHELOR and also a pure Documentary A SHORT HISTORY OF POVERTY - both of these films illustrate the wide and diverse interests the artists hold
in social, cultural and community interests. They adopted their street two years back and also participate in a community garden and manage a local mini parkette.

Peter Harcourt former film critic and Carleton Prof wrote that Evanchuck was passionate about making 'real documentaries based on the actual event not scripted or designed beforehand but on location allowed the reality to create the doc.
Both these films are now on the festival circuit and will be showing in Ottawa and the world.

their creative art pieces start with Evanchuck's photos then are embellished by Lacelle using traditional hand painting combined with modern computer graphics to create a 'marvelous realism'

All welcome to enjoy the congenial atmosphere and the 'food for thought' inspired by the decor and art of Chez Lucien

ART-TWO from 23Aug to Sept30

More MARVELOUS at the St Laurent Library

 
Helene with the help of Linda Dabros level-up her 'MARVELOUS'  installation at the St-Laurent Library

 


Exhibition of Paintings - Helene Lacelle and Peter Evanchuck

St-Laurent Library, in conjunction with Arteast, is proud to present an exhibition of images by local artists Helene Lacelle and Peter Evanchuck. This show is titled Marvellous Realism and runs from June 28 to September 27, 2019.

In this interesting exhibit, the artists combine the traditional use of photography and painting with modern computer capabilities to enhance and create something unique for the viewer. For example, homes undergoing decay and abandonment due to the economic crisis are made beautiful using these techniques. Evanchuck's photography is thus enhanced with Lacelle's paint and brush, and then further developed with the use of computer image enhancement. Images were shot primarily in New Brunswick and in the Perth area of Ontario.

This is a unique opportunity for the public to enjoy, encourage, and support artists in their local community, as well as the St-Laurent Library.

Location: St-Laurent branch of the Ottawa Public Library, 515 Côté Street, Ottawa K1K 0Z8

Hours: Monday to Thursday: 10:00 - 8:30, Friday: 1:00 - 6:00, Saturday: 10:00- 5:00,

Sunday: closed

Our 'MARVELOUS REALISM' artwork travels to the TATE EXCHANGE LIVERPOOL




  28TH JULY TO 12TH OF AUGUST 2018

The Venice Vending Machine ( DISPENSING FREE ART ) project is a “collaborative, participatory, inclusive live art public installation”, conceived by Venetian artist Marina Moreno. Its aim is to question the role and the value of Art in our society, whilst aiming to promote emerging artists alongside some famous and established ones. It creates an intriguing game for the participants who feel compelled to enjoin and involve themselves in a dialogue that the artist Marina creates in posing the question:
“HOW DO YOU VALUE ART?”
Since the first Venice Vending Machine installation, it has involved over 400 artists from all over the world and has attracted professionals such as curators, art historians and art collectors while extending the possibility of an encounter with people that normally would not be interested in “Art”.
Unlike past VVM events, and in keeping with the spirit of this Tate Exchange Liverpool the acquisition of a work of art will depend uniquely on a dialogue about the notion of art in our society and culture with no monetary exchange, focusing only on the intrinsic value of art.
