SPOTTED by The Jessie!
After all the excitement, fun, and gossip of Prairie Scene, Magnetic North, AND the Ottawa Fringe Festival, Jessie has temporarily fled to her Hamptons seaside sanctuary to recharge.
Before departing, with “more dirt than a dust buster”, she asked me to convey her gratitude to all of you who have supported her column with the spottings and insider tips that keep tongues a-wagging about Ottawa arts.
Finally, she also asks that flowers not but sent. Instead, please send gin.
Follow the links, mark your calendars, and fling yourself into a summer of Ottawa arts! You will enjoy it!
