NEW BEGINNINGS: our 1st 3 months in our new digs!

Posted on June 27, 2018

Spring is always a season of new beginnings but this spring had a special spirit of rejuvenation for us!

On April 1st Studio Sixty Six officially opened on 858 Bank St., in a central Glebe location and starting a new era in our journey within a rapidly diversifying Ottawa art scene. Since then we’ve been settling in with the help of some of amazing artists. We were fortunate enough to have Troy Moth’s striking black and white images of our North American wilds in tandem with Yvonne Wiegers meticulously created vivid abstracts, adorning our freshly painted walls as we opened our doors in a bright new space.

After an amazing opening show, Manon Labrosse came in like a whirlwind to paint a gorgeous mural on our wall for our second exhibition, Post: Neo. Transforming our gallery into a forest of colour that was perfectly complimented by Julia Campisi’s powerful vintage photographs. Her work a commentary on cultural and social dynamics as they shift through the ages.

Our current show, Feminine Redux, which exhibits two inspiring and vigorously distinct women, Ruth Steinberg and Lori Brethour Coulter, both with completely unique methods of expressing themes of vulnerability, injustice and vigour, has moved us deeply. And we have loved sharing these strong messages and connections with each person who has come in to visit and been struck, as we were, by their visuals.

The surrounding community has been so welcoming and supportive in propelling us forward in this move and making us feel completely at home already. We’ve been elated to share this new chapter with many new as well as familiar faces and have been blown away by lovely features in both the Glebe Report and Apt613.

But no time to rest! Our next exhibition with artists Amy Barker, Kristina Corre and Kathryn Shriver is taking shape already and as the spring fades into summer, the warmth of a new home is enveloping. 

If you've yet to visit us at our new location we'd love to have you stop by!
