New Exhibition Opens This Week

Under Sacred Light - Russ Paquette
April 20 - May 8, 2016

Opening Reception: Thursday April 21 st, 6 to 10 pm.

This collection of paintings depicts familiar night time scenes from Ottawa. The inspiration for the works originated from the night time wanderings of Ottawa artist Russ Paquette. The scenes he discovered seem rather random, but in each case he was attracted by the serenity he felt as he experienced these places. People are either present in their spaces or their ghost-like essence fills each shadowed corner. There is light and hope that can be found in the darkness. Russ believes that every moment has design, like an artist’s brush creatively meshing pigment into tiny canvas crevices in order to fashion a finished work of art. The artist finds elements of the sacred in common everyday events, and places.

We also have most art for sale online.

The 5000 sqft building is being renovated to feature local contemporary art and will include art studios and catering in the lower level. The New Orange will continue to offer a unique venue space to celebrate wedding receptions, parties etc. and there is plenty of parking.
