Tree Ottawa is proud to announce that we are collaberating with a local artist for Nuit Blanche. Nuit Blanche is a annual fall event in Ottawa showcasing local artists displaying their works downtown from dusk until dawn. This year’s event takes place on Saturday Sept 19th from 7:20 pm to 4:20 am.
Local Artist, Gwen Frankton, is donating her work to help fundraise for Tree Ottawa. She has been deeply affected by of the “emerald ash borer” crisis destroying trees in the city and has created a beautiful installation of small paintings of trees. Each piece is remarkably detailed and she will be showcasing her work at The Rectory House at 310 St.Patrick Street in downtown Ottawa.
If you are interested in donating to a worthwhile cause to help build a greener Ottawa, please donate. You will receive a lovely piece by this incredibly talented local artist and show support for her work.
