Fill your head – and your heart – this weekend at Art in the Alley

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Fishbowl patrons|Ottawa

I wanted to share a bit of fun news from longtime Fishbowl patron Alison Fowler. She’s been busy planning a really cool weekend art event that will feature some of her work as well as paintings by Ross Rheaume and Andrew King. Opening night is Friday May 24, and all the action will be outside in the alley beside her studio at 1395 and 1391 Wellington Street in Wellington West Village. There’ll be music, refreshments, and of course, amazing art.

If you can’t make it Friday night, make an outing out of it on Saturday or Sunday between 11 and 5:00 p.m. Strap the kids into the Chariot (or maybe they’re big enough to ride on their own) and combine it with a meal or a visit to some stops along that bit of the strip… like the Wellington Diner, Ottawa Bagelshop, or the Herb & Spice for something fresh for dinner.

Now does that sound like a worthwhile excursion or what?

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human offspring: Emma (24) and Sarah (22). During the day I work as a writer at the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
