SUPPORTING THE OAG
“Art is a wonderful expression of creativity and emotions, and it can develop a contemplative and keen sense of observation in the growing minds of our children and grandchildren! Through strong arts education, we learn how to appreciate art, to reflect on our humanity, our culture, and our history.”
— Chris and MaryAnn Turnbull, supporters of arts education at the OAG
WHY GIVE TO THE OAG?
THE OTTAWA ART GALLERY IS BUILT ON THE SUPPORT AND PARTICIPATION OF ITS COMMUNITY.
As a registered charity, we rely on community support to:
Offer access to the gallery at no admission charge
Research, collect and preserve primarily regional art in perpetuity for Ottawa citizens and the enjoyment of all
Pursue creative partnerships and offer public programs — such as spring and summer art camps, Artwise, and Toddler Mornings — that engage
a wide spectrum of the community
Interpret art with a focus on Ottawa but within a national and international context
Provide a space for communing with art and celebrating culture in our city via special events, artist talks, and workshops
