A LOCAL CANVAS: PAINTINGS FROM THE BYTOWN MUSEUM’S COLLECTION
1, ruelle Canal, Ottawa, (Ontario), K1P 5P6
From May 15, 2020 to April 11, 2021. “A Local Canvas: Paintings from the Bytown Museum’s Collection” showcases some of the unique and eclectic works of art held within the Bytown Museum’s vault, with a focus on: local sites, people, and artists. The impetus for this special exhibition was the ongoing digitization of the Museum’s artefact collection in general and, specifically, the paintings collection, effectively rediscovering some of our amazing treasures. Rarely if ever exhibited, the pieces on display are but a small sampling of our extensive collection, and represent both professional and amateur works; all have stories to tell of Ottawa’s rich history.
