Ottawa Canada Art

One of the most eagerly anticipated projects in the history of the Canadian capital was unveiled over the weekend: the new Ottawa Art Gallery. It is the culmination of a series of projects, including the $1.2 billion renovation and expansion of Canada's National Gallery in Ottawa and the construction of two new galleries in Ottawa.

The highlight of the gallery is the addition of two new galleries: the Canadian Art Gallery and the Firestone Collection. Canadian artists, the earliest works acquired by the museum, were Canadian artists, and Canadian art remains the focal point of the institution. In 2017, the galleries unveiled the permanent collection, which has been reconfigured to give the works of local artists a proper place in both "Canadian art" and "European tradition." The renovation will also allow some of Canada's most important works from the Firestone Collection to be reintroduced to the new gallery, such as the works of our beloved "Group of Seven," which is included in the "Firestones Collection of Canadian Art."

Abadakone's exhibition "Continuous Fire" is on view at the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa until April 5. Connoisseurs and contemporaries can also visit the new "Canadian Art Gallery and the Firestone Collection of Canadian Art," which is scheduled to open in the fall. Then there is the designer Karim Rashid, originally from Ottawa, whose designs are now recognised worldwide for their design.

If you ask why Rashid's work is being shown at OAG, he says: "The Ottawa Art Gallery wants to show the full spectrum of visual art.

In his speech, Mayor Watson noted that the opening of the new Ottawa Art Gallery marks a significant moment in the history and culture of our city. For the local art community, cutting a ribbon and a lively exhibition is not only welcome, but also a sign of much - necessary - recognition of art as part of our cultural heritage.

In 1913, the Canadian government passed the National Gallery Act and formally outlined the institution's mission as a national art museum. The museum is affiliated with several associations, including the Canadian Museum of Modern Art (CMMA), the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts (RAA) and the Ottawa Art Museum (OAM). The newly founded Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography, CMCP, has been affiliated with the National Gallery since 1985.

The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre is also working on a programme that uses visual art as a wellness tool for mental health. The direct purchase is an opportunity for participants to offer artworks to the City of Ottawa for sale. The proposals will be reviewed by a peer assessment committee and the selected artworks will become part of the City of Ottawa Art Collection. Your personal information will only be used for the purpose of evaluating submissions and managing the City of Ottawa Public Art Program.

The National Gallery of Canada is housed in the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre (ROHC) in Ottawa, Canada. Housed in a historic building on the corner of Ottawa Street and Queen Street East, it houses one of the largest contemporary art collections in Canada and the United States.
