Join us for a special edition Happy Hour in Jackson and celebrate Karina Kraenzle: Déjà vu, our exhibition of work by the 2023 Project X Award recipient, Karina Kraenzle!
Recognizing the merits of a publicly presented photographic project by an artist who demonstrates an ongoing connection to Ottawa, the Project X Award is presented in partnership with the Ottawa Arts Council, SPAO, and the Ottawa Art Gallery, along with supporting sponsor DAÏMÔN.
Currently open in our Sky Lounge space (Floor 3), this exhibition of Karina’s award-winning work will be on view until November 5, 2023.
