This week in the Future of Ottawa series, we’re taking a deep dive into Ottawa’s art scene—what it’s like now and where it’s headed. Read on for a guest post from Carrie Colton on the future of art galleries in Ottawa. Colton is the gallery principal at Studio Sixty Six.
With public events being cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns, Trejo thought it might be best to cancel his show as well. He was prepared to accept that. Luckily, he and the Studio Sixty Six’s curator, Carrie Colton, came up with another approach that would allow his work to be shown at a safe social distance.
Taymaz Valley: “The pairing of these two artists is a spark of genius on the gallery director Carrie Colton’s part, not only because of the contrasting palettes with which these two artists exercise their creativity, but by the performativity that brings forth their interconnectivity.”
Every year, as part of their mandate, Ottawa emerging artist gallery Studio Sixty Six supports a local charity that is near and dear to their hearts with a fundraiser in the weeks leading up to the holidays.
