From the Kanata Kourier-Standard EMC, Thursday, October 18, 2012:
John Mlacak’s paintings will be on display at the Ottawa Art Expo at the St. Elias Centre on Oct. 27 and 28.
The art show will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the centre, located at 750 Ridgewood Ave.
Mlacak has been with the show since it started four years ago.
The Kanata artist received the Lucille Broadbent Award for Artistic Achievement from Mayor Jim Watson at the expo in 2010 and has been recognized as an artist, designer, politician and city planner.
The expo described Mlacak as a successful artist who has sold his work in Canada and around the world, and as someone who has donated his time and his paintings to charity.
Some 70 artists will participate in this, the largest indoor art show in eastern Ontario and western Quebec, and all must go through a jurying process each year.
Admission and parking are free.
The Ottawa Art Expo is an annual event that was founded in 2008. The organization eventually hopes to create a student scholarship through the awards program.
