Mid-March means the explosion of green – if not with melting snow, then at least in a pint glass. St. Paddy’s is still a few days away, but there are festivities all weekend long: Irish food, music and of course parties – including a burlesque brunch. For you theatre buffs: Down at Arts Court, Jerk It will get down into some hilarious and touching masturbation stories. Improv gets a sea-bound twist with Much Ado about Feckin’ Pirates, starting this weekend down at the Gladstone. There’s fun for the whole family... | Continue reading article

An important aspect of International Women’s Day is that it initiates a dialogue, a dialogue that resurrects past generations of struggle, contempt and discernment in a society that has persecuted individual’s opportunity on the basis of gender. A collection of works by five female artists are featured from now until March 30th at the Wall Space Gallery in Westboro. An exhibit called Inspiring Change, commends the artists who evoke their audience in a process of motivational nostalgia. The thought-provoking works of artists Marjolyn van der Hart, Alex Chowaniec, Joy Kardish,... | Continue reading article

Winterlude moved up a few levels of cool with last Saturday’s German-Canadian Graffiti Jam. Hosted by the Embassy of Germany, the event included live graffiti painting, hip hop and techno music, free German sausage, pizza and a truly foreign way of staying warm: hot mulled wine (also known as Glühwein) and warm apple cider. I can’t say I like my red wine any other way than room temperature, but the cider was good. And they had a vegetarian option, which is not too shabby for a country that boasts sausage... | Continue reading article

If you’re in need of a bit of green and  have an interest in World War I history and French landscapes, it’s worth a visit to  Rémi Thériault’s new exhibit, ‘Front’ at the Ottawa Art Gallery. It’s a personal study by Rémi of Canadian First World War battle sites, which is particularly fitting considering that this year is the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I. “I wanted to expand on what the general population already knew about the First World War, mostly on the traditional photographs than we normally... | Continue reading article

Railbender Studio opens February 15th!Railbender Studio opens February 15th!

Ottawa’s got its fair share of tattoo parlours and art galleries – and tattoo parlour art galleries. The latest addition to this mix is Railbender Studio, set to open Feb. 15 down in Hintonburg. There’s a twist, though, that makes this new studio unique. In order to launch the studio/gallery, owners Alex Néron and Marta Jarzabek looked to the community for support. Through a Kickstarter campaign, they raised enough to get the business off the ground, getting support from more than 100 backers and reaching their 10,000 goal in one month. We... | Continue reading article
