Barbara Ursel is an Ottawa artist who paints the wonders of ordinary life – the streetscapes and people she sees all around her. She paints the light, and the shadows it casts, in these ordinary scenes to show the wonders that she sees there. Barbara hopes that her paintings let you see and explore these “ordinary wonders” too.
Barbara’s work is represented by the Ottawa Art Gallery ART Rental and Sales, located in the Arts Court Building at 2 Daly Avenue. Two of her paintings were just selected to be part of the upcoming 2017 Open International Online Exhibition of the Society of Canadian Artists that will take place from March 15 to June 15, 2017. Barbara’s paintings have been exhibited in juried group and solo shows and are in private collections in Canada and internationally. Her “Studio Self Portrait” was selected to be part of the Figureworks 2015 juried show at Saint Brigid’s Centre for the Arts in Ottawa.
