Bahá'í Ottawa Community Arts

Check out this exhibit of thread and canvas, mixed media pieces, by artist Heather Cardin at the Fireside Gallery, lower level of the Ottawa Bahá'í Centre, until mid-September, 2022.

Heather Cardin is an author and poet who has published five books. A retired teacher, she spent a career teaching many subjects via the arts: visual, written, musical, and dramatic, in Papua New Guinea and Saskatchewan. Heather has also does photography, acrylic and watercolour on paper, and embroidery.

"Then along came Covid,” says Heather. “So I’m retired, at home, and have a moderate disability….how to be useful? I can sit and design paintings and “thread paintings”. When I learned that I could sew on stretched canvas, I was thrilled. Also, I could play with mixed media: ribbons and beads, lace and geometry, and even, occasionally, tools.” Her daughter encouraged her to open an Etsy shop (https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/HeatherArtHeart).

Bahá'í Ottawa Community Arts

Check out this exhibit by painter Dianne Henderson at the Fireside Gallery, lower level of the Ottawa Bahá'í Centre, until mid-May, 2022.

Dianne has been an artist for almost 20 years. During that time, she discovered a passion and talent for painting people. She uses the medium of oil paint to capture emotions, both her own and those of her subjects.

This selection of several paintings is her response to articles and photographs that told heartbreaking stories from the lives of poorer people in Nigeria, but which also revealed a certain joy and innocence.
