Finishing off my series from Nuit Blanche 2015 today, this is the Rectory Art House, located next to St. Brigid's. Both buildings were involved in Nuit Blanche- the former church was closed down by the archdiocese and took on new life as St. Brigid's Centre For The Arts. This view is in daylight.
The rectory is now studio space for several artists, who were participating.
I photographed three of the installations here, and popped into the kitchen at the back of the rectory.
This first studio had an installation entitled Nocturne, by the artist Sharon Lafferty.
Lori Victor did this next work, entitled Object of Speculation. She mentioned that the idea grew out of last spring's run by the Ottawa Senators, and this explores hype through hockey culture.
This last room was put together by Karen Bailey, and is called When Guide Dogs Dance. I got there late in the evening- I'd heard the dog in question, a Lab named Stanley, had been present earlier in the evening, and I'd missed him by about twenty minutes. Karen filled this room with paintings of seeing eye dogs at work and at play, as well as a video screen with these dogs engaged in play. We're so used to guide dogs of whatever kind being stoic and professional that we don't see them just being dogs and having a ball.
