Mural Unveiling!

This Saturday, November 28, from 1:00 to 2:00, we are formally unveiling the long awaited mural on the concrete wall at 3 Lowrey. We will have live stencil demonstrations by the artist Arpi, music, and hot chocolate to warm you up. It will be a great celebration of art and creativity, which speaks to Hintonburg values.

The mural at 3 Lowrey, at the corner of Lowrey St and Garland Street, was conceived of by Roger Senecal and Neel Bhatt, the principals of Content Home which developed a number of properties across the street from a blank concrete wall. Seeing the opportunity for something more, Content Home secured prominent street artist Arpi to design a unique and powerful piece to add some much needed vibrancy to the otherwise boring bit of concrete. 

After a few hurdles, and with the support of the Hintonburg Community Association and the help of Kitchissippi ward councillor Jeff Leiper, the mural at 3 Lowrey has come to fruition. 

About the artist:
Arpi is a Montreal-born and  -raised artist whose work has been appearing all over Ottawa, including Kitchissippi institutions such as Orange Art Gallery, The Hintonburg Public House, West End Well, and Railbender Tattoo Studio & Art Gallery. Arpis work walks the line between realism and abstraction, a concept familiar in Hintonburg as we balance new, modern developments with a unique character and history. The mural at 3 Lowrey is a vivid and compelling imagining of soft nature fusing with urbanism.

Please join us in celebrating this great new addition to our neighbourhood.

New Hintonburg Mural!

Great news late last week - We finally got City of Ottawa approval to paint a mural on a large wall on Hintonburg's Garland Street. The mural will be painted by local artist ARPI (check out his bio here). I'm proud to have played a hand in getting this project going in collaboration with city councillor Jeff Leiper, the Hintonburg Community Association, and Content Home. ARPI is hoping to get started this weekend (weather permitting) and I will continue to share updates as the project is completed this fall.

Community events!

Last weekend was the Tastes of Wellington West - a free and delicious way to explore the neighbourhoods of Hintonburg and Wellington West. I enjoyed meeting folks and sharing my own "taste of Wellington" - homemade chocolate chip cookies! - at the open house at our beautiful property at 13 Garland Street. This weekend is the another opportunity to try some tasty and creative Ottawa eats at the Ottawa food truck rally on September 26th. I will also be hosting open houses on Thursday from 11-1 and Sunday from 2-4 at our gorgeous, modern and energy efficient properties on Garland street in Ottawa's hottest neighbourhood, Hintonburg.
