Ottawa’s Cube Gallery has been hosting a group show of art about the environment for the month of October. Sculpture, photography and paintings by 15 artists exploring the more-than-human world and humans’ place in it are on display until Sunday October 28th.
I managed to catch a glimpse of the Green Exhibit today (though the gallery is not open to the public Mondays or Tuesdays) and liked what I saw: some industrial landscapes, some wilderness landscapes, some provocative and even disturbing pieces, some reverent and even spiritual pieces. Definitely worth the trip to the Parkdale Market neighbourhood where Cube makes its home.
In related news, Cube Gallery has recently signed on to source all its electricity from Bullfrog Power, making it the only art gallery in Canada to be green powered. For you bike-commuters, the Cube Gallery also has a first-rate rack out front that will accommodate up to 5 bikes.
Cube Gallery is open Wednesdays to Fridays 11-6pm and Saturdays and Sundays 10-5pm.
