What's On


Exploring the intricate intersections of art, motherhood, and societal perspectives, the exhibited works vary significantly, mirroring the unique lived experiences of Mothers/Artists.

Examining our relationship to the spaces we move through in our day to day lives, the artworks presented in this exhibit show different perspectives on how we impact a space through our presence or our absence, and how those spaces shape us in turn.

The Firestone Collection of Canadian Art is a significant art collection that spans the modern period and includes work from a wide range of Canadian art styles, geographical regions, and periods. The two largest themes represented in the collection are landscape and abstraction.

Come to the Jackson Café to discover two large murals, featuring the digital artwork of Eric Chan (aka eepmon).

This piece is a digitization of a birch bark biting that has then been reproduced through risograph printing. The biting can be interpreted as chickadees flying around flowers.

This retrospective exhibition highlights the work of Ottawa-based artist Norman Takeuchi. Together, an array of drawings, paintings, and prints spanning the years 1961 to 2022 demonstrate the continuity of his artistic rigour.
