SÉLECTIONS is one of the largest juried group art shows in Ottawa to use both Salons A and B of the Trinity Art Gallery at the Shenkman Arts Centre. Operated by the City of Ottawa, the Trinity Art Gallery has a contemporary hanging system and professional lighting. The gallery is open to the public Monday to Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. In 2017, 2,000 people attended the month-long show which included photography, painting, sculpture, drawing, mixed media and printmaking by 40 Arts Network Ottawa (formerly Arts Network Ottawa) members.
