Arts Network Ottawa will no longer be hosting the Selections Annual Juried Exhibition.

We thank the hundreds of members who have participated in Selections over the past 17 years and to the community sponsors, supporters and the ARTicipate Endowment Fund who have helped to fund mounting and promoting the exhibition.

Arts Network is excited to be working behind the scenes on an initiative that will better support the entire arts community in the future. Please stay tuned for the new Artist in Residency program that will be coming to the Shenkman Arts Centre!

Over the coming year, we aim to further support our members with new, tangible benefits to our membership.  We are also pleased to announce that all Arts Network Ottawa members will be included in Wallack’s Orange Circle Rewards program. More information will follow.
