Art is Art + Juno Pho­tog­ra­phy

Where Ottawa - - HERE & NOW -

Cana­dian tune­smiths are far from one-trick ponies. You can see for your­self at the ex­hi­bi­tion Art is Art, for which mu­si­cians were com­mis­sioned to cre­ate orig­i­nal art­works in­spired by the con­nec­tion be­tween mu­sic and vis­ual art. Par­tic­i­pants in­clude Chan­tal Kre­vi­azuk, Coeur de Pi­rate, Hugh Dil­lon (Head­stones), Jann Ar­den, Kevin Drew (Bro­ken So­cial Scene), Lights, Randy Bachman, Ser­ena Ry­der, and Tom Wil­son. Mean­while, back­stage, can­did mo­ments, and clas­sic per­for­mances by such fa­mous Cana­dian mu­si­cians as Anne Mur­ray, Gor­don Light­foot, and Stompin’ Tom Con­nors, will be re­vealed in the Juno Pho­tog­ra­phy Ex­hi­bi­tion. It fea­tures nearly 50 images taken by Canada’s fore­most rock and roll pho­tog­ra­phers. The images also ap­peared in the Juno Awards’ 40th An­niver­sary book, Mu­sic From Far and Wide. Both ex­hibits will be at the Ot­tawa Art Gallery An­nex at City Hall from March 10 to April 16.
