OTTAWA BAWI 2013
August 3, 4, & 5
Remic Rapids , Ottawa CANADA
OTTAWA BAWI 2013 is sponsored by Ottawa Rock Art, the City of Ottawa and the National Capital Commission. The first OTTAWA BAWI in 2012, hosted 12 artists from USA, Canada and Italy. The surprising success and huge attendance encouraged the City of Ottawa & the NCC to continue sponsorship of the festival to 2017, Canada’s 150th anniversary.
This year’s festival will include a variety of talented artists from across Canada, the United States, Italy, Israel & Brazil. Ottawa Rock Art Inc. will host the festival, as it did in 2012. Public and private donations helped tremendously in 2012, providing our guests with food and accommodation while creating their work in Ottawa.
This year’s line up of artists include: Betti Failla, Italy; Dan Davis, Canada; Peter Juhl, USA; Peter Riedel, Canada; Jose Chvaicer, Israel & Brazil, Bill Peisher, USA, Robert Kauffman, USA; Nancy Grace, Canada; Denise Dowdy, Canada; Karl Ciesluk, Canada. Guest musician, Ian Hanchet, from Montreal, will provide guitar solo upon site throughout the festival as he did in 2012. Other performers will participate in the festival, including Laura Astwood and the Ottawa Stilt Union, scheduled at 11 am, Saturday the 3rd of August. The Ottawa Stilt Union has performed upon site before and is for all ages. Sample photo from 2011 performance: http://ottawastiltunion.ca/
