Palindrome : ecce (Presented by BRAVO-Est | Conceptualized by Prof Yves M. Larocque) La Nouvelle Scéne, Ottawa, ON
This event touched Nancy on a very personal level as her brother was the palindrome inspiration. A palindrome is a word, phrase, number, or other sequence of symbols/elements, whose meaning may be interpreted the same way either forwards or backwards. The elements in this case were the art mediums: a painting and a video. The painting would be a "palindrome" of their video and vice-versa. Ten artists created palindrome concepts and presented their story at the vernissage. More event photos...

The 5th Annual Colours on the Bay | Coloris sur la Baie (Juried Art Show)
La Nouvelle Scéne, Ottawa, ON
The opening night of re-inventio was a grand success! Nancy’s painting (each artist was represented by one of their current works) is one of only two that sold on the opening night of this month-long exhibition. Her selected work was "rock face" which can be viewed in the landscapes section of the gallery.
The second piece she had on display for the remainder of the show was entitled "rhapsody" which can also be viewed in the landscapes section of the gallery. There was a fantastic selection of works from all of Prof. Yves Larocque’s OSA Art Class (winter/spring 2012 students) and Nancy would like to thank all that came by to view her/their art throughout the duration of the event and on the opening night.
An exhibtion book featuring various works from each of the presenting artists has been prepared and is still available at blurb.com.
It is entitled:
re-inventio | se ré-inventer | re-inventing ourselves
