I'm looking forward to being part of the New Art Festival, held in the lovely, spacious Central Park in the Glebe neighbourhood of Ottawa. It's been growing over the past 20 plus years and has become quite an incredible showcase of (mostly) local art. I finally visited for the first time a few years ago and was really impressed with the variety, and quantity, of work and really enjoyed the atmosphere of this outdoor festival.
It's being held Saturday & Sunday, June 15 & 16, rain or shine, free admission. More details on the website www.newartfestival.ca You can find me at 7a Patterson on the map!
