Photos of Doors Open Ottawa at The Enriched Bread Artists by Joyce Westrop.

Enriched Bread Artists are celebrating their 21st year in the former Standard Bread Company building. The building, opened in 1924, is adorned with a plaque with the Latin proverb: Audaces Fortuna Juvat, meaning Fortune Favours the Bold, which can still be seen near the entrance. It is now home to artists’ studios boldly continuing to sustain Ottawa. Doors Open Ottawa

Le groupe Enriched Bread Artists célèbre sa 21e année dans l’ancien édifice de la Standard Bread Company. Le bâtiment, ouvert depuis 1924, est doté d’une plaque portant le proverbe latin Audaces Fortuna Juvat, qui signifie « la fortune sourit aux audacieux » et qui est visible encore aujourd’hui, près de l’entrée. Ce lieu abrite dorénavant des ateliers d’artistes qui continuent de nourrir l’âme des habitants d’Ottawa. Portes Ouvertes Ottawa

eba quartair catalogue

Come join EBA's artists as we celebrate Guerilla magazine's 10th Anniversary with a hump night THANK YOU party and a launch of our catalogue from the combined Dutch Settlement and Interference Exhibits done in collaboration with Quartair artists from Holland.

Join us for a drink, check out our new catalogue, dance to the music of Michael Caffery's Collaboration Dronescape, and celebrate! It promises to be a mid-week refresher and a fun filled celebration in appreciation for Guerilla's support.

Michael Caffery describes the Dronescape Collaboration in this way: " I like the meditative feel of this music. the idea of having a series of sound stations open for the public to jam with me adds an inviting element of interactivity. it also approaches the yoga class group "OM" (but in this case "ohm") overall, I will be setting the basic form of the drone jam and various people will be drawn to one of the instruments around and find their sonic place in the jam throughout the evening."

The studio-collectives of Quartair Contemporary Art Initiatives in The Hague and the Enriched Bread Artists in Ottawa are an ocean apart but have histories with uncanny similarities. Both studios make their home in decommissioned bread factories rich in character and history. In the summer of 2013, a project led by an Ottawa Dutch-Canadian curator, was realized when the two collectives held exhibitions in each others' gallery spaces. This catalogue documents the two exhibitions and the journey that led to the exchange.
Catalogues available for sale at the event while supplies last.
