The 6th ANNIVERSARY SHOW is Sivarulrasa Gallery’s biggest show of the year, celebrating our 6 years of operations in representing artists from across Canada. Running from Nov 25 to Dec 30, 2020 and covering all 3 exhibition spaces in the gallery, we’re delighted to showcase sculpture, paintings, drawings and photographic works. The exhibition can be viewed in-person during our regular gallery hours: Wed-Sun 11am to 5pm.
For everyone’s safety: If visiting in person, please wear a mask as per health regulations, use hand sanitizer at the entrance, and follow our floor markings for physical distancing – you will be provided with a gentle reminder at our Reception Desk. For those who cannot visit in person, we continue to offer a contactless process for purchasing, delivery and shipping through our Virtual Gallery.
This year’s show will include a special installation by Ottawa-based artist Gayle Kells entitled Nowhere to go. The paintings presented are part of a new body of work which the artist began during the coronavirus lockdown in the Spring of 2020. “They reflect one of the remaining things we were allowed to do in lockdown – explore our neighborhood”, she states. “As many people stayed home, their local forests, walking paths, parklands and streets became a place of refuge and renewal”. Vibrant, energetic, and full of life, Nowhere to go provides an uplifting counterpoint to the dread and isolation imposed by the pandemic.
Two Artists’ Talks/Virtual Vernissages: Due to pandemic restrictions, we will not have an in-person vernissage; however, we will host two Artists Talks/Virtual Vernissages online via Zoom, where artists will join us live from across the country to talk about their works and inspiration.
