On May 27, the Ottawa Art Gallery held their annual fundraising gala, this year marking the first in-person event in two years. The Gallery organized the Give to Get Art Auction with works by local artists and a weekend-long Art Market to raise funds for the organization, and through the weekend’s events, the OAG met their fundrairing goals.
OAG aims to always keep admission free and to connect with the local community by hosting events, tours, and education programs.
“For over 20 years, the OAG’s annual fundraiser has marked a special moment in our social calendar; a time to connect with friends, celebrate the incredible artistic talent in our region and support the work of the gallery. This year was particularly special as we were finally able to meet in person after two years of virtual. On behalf of the OAG, thank you so much for joining us, for believing in the work of the OAG and for supporting our artists!” says Alexandra Badzak, Director and CEO of the OAG.
