What's On


This is the 6th exhibition mounted at OAG with art created by Creative Space artists. Creative Space is an ongoing program and part of a well-established partnership between the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Center and OAG. Educators use art as a tool for wellness and social inclusion by offering weekly in person and online classes.

This exhibition includes imaginative depictions and unique lenses into the artists’ view of the natural world through landscape, cityscape, and still life painting in acrylic, watercolour, and oil, as well as photography, pastel drawing, bronze sculpture, and sculptural assembly.

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.

Le rendu features the work of five University of Ottawa Master of Fine Arts (MFA) graduates who expanded their practice over the two years of their program and ultimately flourished.

after Africa is a seminal work in the practice of artist nichola feldman-kiss. The three-channel audio/video installation brings together key symbols drawn from the artist’s autobiography. The artwork reflects a sustained artistic inquiry into Colonial frameworks while focusing on the body as a contested site of cultural production.

2023 marks the Ottawa Art Gallery’s 35th anniversary as an organization and five years in the new OAG building. In celebration of these milestones, this exhibition features a selection of recent historical acquisitions, drawing on works created before 1988 and acquired in the last five years.
