We invite you to celebrate the holiday season at the Ottawa Art Gallery! On Thursday November 30th, we are offering free childcare (5 – 8pm) so you can experience Happy Hour at Jackson Café (5 – 9pm) as well as the launch of our new Galerie Annexe exhibit, Art + Parcel.
Art + Parcel is a holiday exhibit which features over 60 regional artists with all artwork priced under $1,000. OAG Shop promises unique gift-giving opportunities with Canadian-made gifts such as ceramics, jewellery, homeware, kids crafts, art prints, books, and much more. Find great, local gifts for everyone on your list (and maybe something for yourself as well).
Start your holiday shopping! During this Happy Hour, all OAG Members will receive a special 20% “Member Shop Day” Discount on products at the OAG Shop*. (That’s an additional 10% discount on top of the regular 10% Member Discount!) As well, member purchases over $100 will receive a free gift.
