To provide an educational program for our Members, build our Endowment Fund, and support our grants program, we launched the Ottawa Talks Art & Architecture Series in 2017, which features tours of public and private art collections and public and private architectural spaces. We introduced a second series in January 2018 featuring Artists’ Studio Visits.
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.
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.
