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.
Ottawa Valley Artists were asked to share a view into their world during a time of uncertainty. Experience the miniature worlds of nine Ottawa Valley Artists in the Welcome To My World exhibit, coming soon to the Arnprior Public Library.
This exhibit is on display in the Ottawa Valley from March to October 2021, moving to the Arnprior Public Library in May, and then Garrison Petawawa in August.
While this exhibit is best seen live, the Welcome To My World virtual gallery below will give you a glimpse into these miniature worlds.
