Featured exhibits for the 2013 season:
 
Origin and Cultural Ownership of a Canadian Icon

Pinhey's Point Historic Site  May 12 - August 31, 2013
Carleton University Department of History  September-October 2013

This exhibit from the Pinhey's Point Foundation features a hitherto unseen manuscript account of the discovery of the 'Champlain' astrolabe, and an exploration of its contested status as a cultural symbol.
Whose Astrolabe?
William Henry Bartlett's Ottawa River
W.H. Bartlett was a British artist who toured North America in the 1840s preparing sepia sketches as the basis for folio volumes of engraved views for sale to the home market.  He viewed the Canadian wilderness through eyes educated in the British picturesque aesthetic.  Nonetheless Bartlett's engravings are probably the best known views of nineteenth-century Canada.  Discover what the Pinheys had to say about his view of Horaceville.

The Champlain and Bartlett exhibits complement RIVERFEST, Pinhey's Point Historic Site's annual keynote event celebrating the Ottawa River, August 12, 2013, and are our contribution to the year-long Champlain 2013 events marking the 400th anniversary of Samuel de Champlain's first ascent of the Ottawa in 1613.  See www.champlain2013.ca

Provenance et la propriété culturelle d'une icône canadienne

Lieu historique de Pinhey's Point 12 mai - 31 août 2013
Département d'histoire de l'Université Carleton Septembre-Octobre 2013

Cette exposition de la Fondation Pinhey's Point présente un manuscrit -jusqu'à maintenant inconnu-  de la découverte de l'astrolabe de Champlain et une exploration de son statut contesté comme un symbole culturel.
W.H. Bartlett était un artiste britannique qui a visité l'Amérique du Nord dans les années 1840.   Il considérait la nature sauvage canadienne à travers les yeux instruits dans l'esthétique pittoresque britannique.  Néanmoins les gravures de Bartlett sont probablement les images les meilleures connues du Canada au XIXe siècle.  Découvrez ce que les Pinhey avaient à dire à propos de sa vision de Horaceville.

Ces deux expositions se complètent Riverfest, l'événement annuel célébrant la rivière des Outaouais, le 12 août 2013 et sont notre contribution aux événements marquant le 400e anniversaire de la première ascension de la région d'Ottawa de Samuel de Champlain en 1613. voir www.champlain2013.ca
