City Hall Art Gallery Features Stittsville Artist

2017 Collection Exhibition Invite

Stop by Ottawa City Hall (110 Laurier Ave W) before January 7th, 2018 to enjoy the artistic stylings of Stittsville resident, Lynda Cronin, in the City’s newest exhibition: Longevity: 2017 Additions to the City of Ottawa Art Collection.

The art collection contains over 2,700 artworks by artists associated with the Ottawa area. Currently artworks are on display in over 150 City facilities, including administration buildings, branches of the public library and community centres as well as parks, roadways and transit stations. This local collection is comprised of works of art that allow for an appreciation, an understanding and a future interpretation of the City’s visual arts history. Developed in 1985, the City of Ottawa Public Art Program manages and exhibits the City of Ottawa Art Collection.

Lynda describes her art as “concept driven and […] integral to site and place influenced by the lived environment, the written word or aspects of history and culture that connect to a specific time and experience. The intention is to articulate public space in an interesting and meaningful way by considering multiple avenues for public engagement and consideration.”

Lynda’s work, Tempus 2017, prominently displays the beauty of the Innovation Drive Park and Ride (1321-3043 Innovation Drive).
