We are working our way through the fabulous local artwork donated to OSCA’s Save Our Firehall campaign. Over $1300 has been raised so far! Visit us @saveourfirehall on Facebook. Bidding on the latest artwork posted ends Sunday, July 25, 2021.
Are you an artist with ties to the Glebe, Glebe Annex, Dow’s Lake, Old Ottawa East, or Old Ottawa South?
We are now accepting applications from local artists and are looking for a variety of high-quality, original artwork from painting to pottery, from glasswork to sculpture.
Artists will be given the opportunity to showcase and sell their artwork at the Community Pop-up Art Gallery at Lansdowne during the later winter/spring 2021.
The holidays might be over, but the spirit of local shopping is not! We're thrilled to continue highlighting these local artists through January.
You can safely browse our artists below, and find unique items for yourself or your loved ones. Make your purchase directly from the artist by clicking on their website/Facebook page/Instagram link below.
There is art to be found in Old Ottawa South, even if all the galleries in town are closed. Where? On the street. Take a walk along Bank on a sunny, quiet day. Make believe you are in a gallery. Look across the street at storefronts as though they were paintings and sculptures in an exhibition. Look up, down, all around. No need for labels.
As a bit of a boredom buster during the social distancing we’re practicing, the Firehall team have been coming up with fun ways to engage the community without having to gather. Since the centre is closed until further notice, people won’t get to see the beautiful artwork that was submitted for our Spring Art Show. However...
After another beautiful and successful Winter Art Show & Sale at the Firehall, we are getting ready to start accepting pieces for the Spring Art Show & Sale!
January marks the second month of OSCA's Winter Art Exhibit at the Firehall. The exhibit continues to the end of February 2020 and is open for viewing seven days of the week, the same hours of operation as the Firehall at 260 Sunnyside Avenue.
From November 13th - November 20th, OSCA will be taking submissions for the Winter Art Show & Sale at the Firehall. Artists working in any medium may submit one winter-themed piece along with a completed submission form. Pieces will be displayed in the Firehall lobby from November 24, 2019 - February 29, 2020 and 100% of the selling price goes to the artist.
On Sunday, September 16, 2018, Trinity Anglican Church launched its new Bank Street mural—Telling the Truth: A shared journey toward Reconciliation Healing and Hope.
Sunday’s celebrations began with a traditional indigenous welcome song at Trinity’s weekly 10 o’clock service. Reverend Arran Thorpe presided and mid-way through the service introduced Justin Holness, rap singer and founder of TR1BE Academy. Together with guest indigenous dancers, Justin Holness performed “Woke”, a rhythmic rap song that was both stirring and hopeful in its lean but dramatic presentation.
Like rust, real passionate art never sleeps. One lives it always in every moment of the artist’s existence.
Living with cancer and after four major operations I have slowed down. Everything now takes me much longer to accomplish than before the illness. Despite that, creative work allows my life to have exceptional meaning. That meaning has given Helene Lacelle and I a very special 32 years that we’ve been together, immersed in the beauty of creative art that represents our life, our country, our community.
