AOE Arts Council's SELECTIONS exhibit promotes Ottawa artists by featuring work by its members. In 2016, the vernissage, attended by well over 150 guests, included photography, painting, sculpture, marquetry, drawing, mixed media and printmaking by 33 AOE Arts Council members. Over 2,000 patrons visited the SELECTIONS exhibition last year!

The 16th annual juried art show will take place from September 21 to October 17, 2017 in the Trinity Art Gallery at the Shenkman Arts Centre. Owned and operated by the City of Ottawa, the Trinity Art Gallery has a contemporary hanging system, professional lighting and uses both Salons A and B for the show. The gallery is open to the public Monday to Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

The opening reception held in September will provide the public and media with the chance to meet the artists and talk to award recipients. The public will be able to vote for the People’s Choice Award for the duration of the exhibit. SELECTIONS is promoted actively by AOE Arts Council and the City of Ottawa online, through social media, and with marketing materials.
