Your curiosity and creativity will flourish with a trip to the Gallery this spring!
Updated for a fresh new season, our programming has something for everyone. Explore the collection on FREE Thursday nights, enjoy art-making activities, attend a themed tour, or dive deeper into our new exhibitions.
Free Thursday Nights:
Sips and bites
From 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday nights, enjoy seasonal refreshments and snacks in the Scotiabank Great Hall to the sound of music by a local DJ. You also won’t want to miss an opportunity to create your own linocut stamp to make some print magic. Admission is FREE.
During your next Thursday night visit to the Gallery, sip on a Spring has Sprung Spritz and snack on everything from charcuterie and cheese boards to caprese skewers and smoked salmon with crostini.

Seiiizi is one of Ottawa/Gatineau’s most exciting young talents. Although already a fixture on the dance floor at alternative music events around the city, in 2015 she publicly stepped behind the decks and started to lay down her own sounds. Since then, her reputation has grown year after year as one of the creatives to watch in Ottawa/Gatineau.
