For a quarter century, the Ottawa Art Gallery is where generations of Ottawans, and visitors to our city, have come to gain a unique perspective on our place in the world.
The Ottawa Art Gallery (OAG) is an independent non-profit public art gallery committed to the acquisition, presentation, interpretation and dissemination of contemporary art for the benefit of the local arts community. OAG’s programs explore a variety of issues and include exhibitions, talks, lectures, tours and publications.
The Gallery has a growing permanent collection of historical and contemporary works associated with the region. It also houses the Firestone Collection of Canadian Art, which consists of more than 1,600 works of art assembled by Ottawa collectors O.J. and Isobel Firestone, who acquired the works from the early 1950s to the 1970s.
