Meet the Artists

SAC - Meet the Artists - Galleries - EN
Up to eight times each year, some or all of the six exhibition spaces in the Shenkman Arts Centre simultaneously launch receptions to introduce artists and their new exhibits. Enjoy casual conversations with featured artists in this ongoing series.

“Meet the Artists” is an invitation to satisfy your curiosity. What motivated the artist? How did they create their work? What was their vision? Will your perspective change?

The artists will be presented on select Thursday or Sunday afternoons. Participating exhibition spaces may include: AOE Gallery, Arteast, Gloucester Pottery School – Dust Evans Gallery, LaLande + Doyle Exhibition Space, Ottawa School of Art Orléans Campus Gallery, and Trinity Art Gallery.

Admission and parking are free. All ages welcome.
