Background

Beginnings

Eleven years ago, a group of artists initiated a new art show in the Glebe. The initial event proved so popular, that the group wanted to continue under the coordination of Linda Loder and Linda Bordage. Since that time, the success of the show has grown each year. We average 1000 visitors each year!

Local Galleries or Exhibits

We annually exhibit a sample of our work:

  • at the Glebe Gallery (in the Glebe Community Centre in March 2016);
  • at the Ottawa School of Art PrimeCorp showcase located at the corner ofBank and Somerset (months of Sept. & Oct. 2016);
  • at Irenes’ Pub on Bank Street (Sept 9th-Oct 2nd, 2016);
  • and at “The Green Door Restaurant” on Main Street for the month of February 2016.

These galleries offer an opportunity to preview and purchase some of our work. The artists which exhibited at the Green Door were: Matilde Brunetti, Rose Roy, Beata Jakubek, Janis Fulton, Tricia Savoie and Linda Loder. The Glebe Gallery Exhibit was from March 6 to April 3, 2016 and artists involved were: Nancy Burke, Heather Lovat-Fraser, Georges Robert and Luminita Serbanescu.

Art Students Connection

Students started participating in this event at the invitation of Linda Loder (who is a former teacher). Linda recognized that both groups – the artists and the aspiring artists – could benefit by working at and promoting the Glebe Fine Art Show. The students receive experience and a place to hang and sell some of their artwork. The artists gain through the marketing activity of the students.
