The artists and organizers of the Glebe Fine Art Show are pleased to welcome back visitors to one of the best art shows in Ottawa.
On Saturday, September 17 and Sunday, September 18, the Glebe Community Centre will open its doors at 175 Third Avenue from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to art lovers from this area and beyond.
These past two years of not being able to socialize or go out to restaurants and cultural events have been difficult. The public is starving to see beauty again, and art is beauty.
There were some updates in 2020 and 2021 with the launch of different versions of the online gallery on our website (glebefineartshow.ca), showcasing what the Glebe Fine Art Show artists were creating. However, we all agree that seeing works of art in person is the best way to experience them. How each piece makes you feel is the real measuring stick of what appeals to you.
The 34 juried artists are all excited to come back. Admission is free, and door prizes will be drawn. A fine component of the show, Mato’s Café, will again be serving beverages and delicious sandwiches, soups and desserts to visitors and artists alike.
It is worth noting that the show will follow all public health protocols.
Come see the show, experience the art and encourage local artists!
