Ottawa Magazine is a wonderful source of local news. Whether it's their picks for best restaurants in town, recommendations on where to grab a glass of wine, profiles of area residents, discussions on art, gardens or politics, or the numerous other topics that they cover, they are a must read for anyone interested in knowing more about our nation's capital.
From a blogging perspective, the magazine's online site publishes several blogs that specialise in different topics. My aim is to eventually review all of these blogs. For today, however, I want to start with the Artful Blogger by Paul Gessell, which contains intelligent and well-written pieces on various local artists and exhibits in the city. Recent posts include:
- A fascinating story on Ottawa-based sculptor Kenneth Emig, who has an exhibit at Galerie St. Laurent + Hill, at 293 Dalhousie Street in the ByWard Market, until April 9;
- The current photography exhibit at the School for the Photographic Arts: Ottawa, currently taking place at the Exposure Gallery, 1255 Wellington Strett West, until April 29; and
- A review of a photography exhibit in Hull by contemporary Inuit artists, at the Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Art Gallery, 10 Wellington Stree in Hull, that runs until May 4.
