Foyer Gallery News - Feb-Mar 2018



February 20 - March 11, 2018

The Foyer Gallery is proud to present "Captivation", a group show with a special focus on works by the five artists who recently joined our gallery: Tracy Armstrong, Therese Boisclair, Ron de Vries, Patricia Kenny, and Michael Rouleau.

An opening reception will be held on Saturday, February 24th, 1 – 3 pm, where visitors can meet some of the artists. Please note that the parking at Entrance #1 may be very busy this weekend at the Nepean Sportsplex because of a synchronized swimming event. However, visitors can also find parking around the back at Entrance #3 and walk through the building to the Foyer Gallery.

The slideshow below presents a few artworks from this show. Visit the Foyer Gallery to see these and more in person!

Patricia Kenny

Patricia Kenny is an Ottawa based multidisciplinary artist. She has studied visual arts at Ottawa School of Art, Algonquin College and York University at different points in her artistic journey. A transformative life event in 2011 precipitated soul searching. This period of reflection resulted in the decision to return to school in 2014 at the Ottawa School of Art (OSA) and focus full-time on her life-long passion. At OSA she studied various disciplines including painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture and digital media. Patricia graduated in 2017 with a Fine Arts Diploma. During time at the school she was honoured to be the recipient of four awards including the Corrie Gibson Memorial Studio Scholarship and the Ted Marshall Memorial Scholarship. A house fire in April of 2016, resulted in great loss that simultaneously ignited renewed passion and resolve to create. Inspired by the universality of transformative experiences and resilience of the human spirit, she drew on her experiences as raw material for a series of works.

Patricia has recently joined the Foyer Gallery. Her works can be seen in the current "Captivation" show and in our future group shows.
