"By words one transmits thoughts to another, by means of art one transmits feelings."
Leo Tolstoy

The Ottawa Art Association is a collegial group of visual artists working in watercolour, pastel, oil, acrylic, mixed media and other media (graphite, ink, charcoal, painting on silk, and prints made by hand).

Members come from Ottawa and the surrounding region, including Western Quebec. We welcome artists at all stages of development from beginning artists trying to promote their work, to established artists whose work is found in Galleries throughout Canada and internationally. If this describes you, please join us!

The OAA exhibits and sells its members' work in the Foyer of the Ottawa Little Theatre nine months of the year and at our new location, the Nectar Gallery. In our Artists' Gallery , members subscribe to showcase their work. Please contact the artist directly if any of these works interests you or your business, to buy or rent.
