If you love Pop Art, pop over to the Firestone Gallery to see a Canadian take on the innovative and influential art movements of the 20th century. The exhibition groups together Canadian artists who employ Cubism and collage, with a special focus on mid-career work by Dennis Tourbin, known for his use of October Crisis headlines.

With a nod to our colleagues at the Ottawa International Animation Festival (OIAF), we are happy to present a group show at ART Rental and Sales. Stop Motion features visual artwork by local animators and cartoonists, including a mural by the EN MASSE collective of artists created live at last year’s OIAF. Take a break from the festival to come see artwork by cartoonist, illustrator and graphic designer Dave Cooper and others from Ottawa.
