La Petite Mort Gallery in Ottawa is featuring the work of Mark Strandquist through April 26. His Windows From Prison Project asked prisoners (originally from Washington, D.C. but sent to prisons across the country) this question: “If you could have window in your cell, what place from your past would it look out to?” Then Strandquist took photos inspired by the responses, which were then mailed back to the participants who had requested the photo. The vernissage will be April 3 from 7 to 10 p.m., and the artist will be present. Windows From Prison was partially funded through a U.S. Department of State, U.S. Embassy-Ottawa Public Affairs Section Grant.
