Atelier Ville Marie
Tucked down a side street and then within an alley way I discovered the Atelier Ville Marie, a genuine art conservation studio. With the gamut of influential people, art galleries and museums in Ottawa, there is an obvious need for such specialists. The area is saturated with creative works in all mediums from every genre and varying degrees of historical significance. Indeed part sleuth, part scientist, part artist and definitely part doctor, these professional conservators really are owed a world of gratitude as they preserve not only our creative heritage, but that with both a significant historical and political slant as well. Perhaps I would be allowed to go for a tour one day if I promise to not use my flash?
