To provide an educational program for our Members, build our Endowment Fund, and support our grants program, we launched the Ottawa Talks Series in 2017, which includes tours of public and private art collections as well as tours of public and private architectural spaces.
HOW IT WORKS
Members pay an annual fee of $250 directly to the Ottawa Art Society Fund at the Ottawa Community Foundation for either series (Art & Architecture or Artists’ Studio Visits) and, in return, they are invited to attend 8 tours throughout the year. A charitable receipt is issued through the Ottawa Community Foundation.
FOR MORE INFORMATION
I invite you to join me for these exciting series. Please contact Ottawa Art Society if you’d like to become a Member of one of both of these series, or if you have any questions or suggestions.
