This sleek gallery is abuzz with activity during the month of September. As host for the vernissage of the West End Studio Tour (W.E.S.T.), Wall Space gives visitors a chance to see works by all 20 participating artists under one roof. Visit the gallery on Sept. 16 to meet the artists, pick up maps, and plan your course. (Now in its 15th year, W.E.S.T. takes place Sept. 18 – 19 and 25 – 26 at various studios in the west end of the city.) Just two days later, on Sept. 18, an exhibit of paintings by Katherine Jeans reveals the fleeting beauty of the natural world. Jeans, an accomplished filmmaker with Sound Venture Productions in Ottawa, launches her book A Desire to Paint What is Beautiful on Sept. 19 at the gallery. All events take place at the Westboro location.
