Tammy Salzl....................CANADA

The Ottawa School of Art Byward Market Campus is proud to present Beauty and Folly, an exhibition by Tammy Salzl. Beauty and Folly is on display from Thursday February 21 to Sunday March 31, 2019 at the Ottawa School of Art’s Gallery located on the main floor of the Downtown Campus in the Byward Market. All are welcome!

Tammy Salzl is a Montreal based interdisciplinary artist who completed her Master of Fine Arts at Concordia University in 2014. Salzl has presented her work across Canada, as well as in Germany, Mexico, and the US. She is a Tedeschi Scholarship recipient, a 2018 OALA/Ground Award recipient, a 2011 Honourable Award Winner in The Kingston Prize, and has received grants and residencies from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, I-Park International Artist in Residence Program, US; the Vermont Studio Centre, US; the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture Centre, Yukon; The Banff Centre, AB; and KHMessen Art House, Norway. Recent solo and two person exhibitions include the Two Rivers Gallery, BC, the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie, AB, and Gallery 101, ON. Salzl has upcoming exhibitions in Montreal, North Bay, and Edmonton.

“My interdisciplinary practice is driven by a keen interest in the power of storytelling and the connections I see between contemporary society, the human psyche, and our relationship with the natural world. The works in Beauty and Folly combine metaphor, material, moving image and sound to examine the psychological complexities of living in a shifting world.”
“My works assign personal and altered narratives to familiar objects and stories, transforming them to reorient thinking about our relationships with the planet, other species, and each other. They draw on the female body and voice (often my own) as a frame of reference, and on the influence of ecology, pop culture, and myth. The gallery becomes a place where we can re- conceive our interconnections with the organic and inorganic world, and where moments of self-awareness and unease are translated into shared experiences and wonder.”
The opening night vernissage & reception will take place at the OSA Main Gallery in the ByWard Market on

Thursday February 21, 2019 from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm. Admission is free.

This free exhibition runs from February 21 to March 31, 2019.

This exhibition presents sculptures and an installation that consists of reconfigured childrens’ objects. It looks at how humour and play can affect reform in a social setting. The work presented revolves around the thin line of safety vs. risk and the resulting relationships that can surface out of the objects.

LIfeCycle - Barbara Brown & Cynthia O'Brien - Karsh Mason Gallery - Ottawa



LifeCycle Conversations is inspired by the theme of memento mori – a reminder of human fragility, mortality and the inevitability of death. In traditional Western painting it is represented symbolically by flowers, fruit and other objects, but here memento mori has been transposed into immersive installations created collaboratively by Barbara Brown and Cynthia O’Brien.

This is the first time that Barbara Brown (photography) and Cynthia O’Brien (clay sculpture) have chosen to work in a collaborative manner – their new works are the fruit of their combined artistic vision. Though the artists work in different media, both employ the changing beauty and delicacy of plants and flowers as a commemorative act and as an observance of transience, loss, memory, decline and rejuvenation in all living things. Brown and O’Brien’s installations also reflect the emotional impact that working as artists in a long-term care residence, where they befriend individuals who are near the end of their lives, has had. Their work reveals profound insights gained from this experience.

Jordan Seal...........................................CANADA

Artist statement excerpt

I wish to create a garden for you. It is overgrown, alive and bustling with alternative plants and insects. Fauna and flora from a secret world, an untouchable realm. I wish to express the principles of the divine through a plethora of organic abstraction. I strive to construct creations that lie outside our universe and yet parallel it. Nature begins again in isolation. I have eschewed measurements, sketches, references, strict geometry. I denounce the brutal vulgarity of the straight line and the square. I begin from nothing and build into a frenzy. I champion the curve, indulging in sensual textures. I am driven to express the uniqueness that pervades being.


Jordan Seal – Wealth of the Eternal Garden

March 22 to May 23, 2018
Vernissage: Thursday, April 26, 5:30 to 7:30 pm (joint opening with the Karsh-Masson Gallery).
Artist talk: Sunday, March 25, 2:00 pm

Anatomy of Resilience is an exhibition of hand-painted and folded paper objects identifying art and creation as a kind of hardiness arising from hardship. Built in pieces, the artworks chronicle the evolution of time, space and perspective caused by adversity and express an existence outside of it, which is critical to realizing resilience.
