The Good Ancestor exhibition asked 14 artists from across the Ottawa Valley to consider what it means to be a good ancestor. They answered that question through their art, creating drinking vessels they imagined sharing with both their ancestors and descendants. Artists worked in a variety of mediums from fibre and ink to glass and found objects.

The Good Ancestor exhibition will be on display in the Ottawa Valley from May to October 2021, moving to the Arnprior Public Library in August, and then Garrison Petawawa in October.

The next exhibit dates and a virtual gallery for Good Ancestor are coming soon.
