On Friday October 26, Arts Network Ottawa (formerly AOE Arts Council) will set the stages of Shenkman Arts Centre for ARTinis, our annual gala. The event attracts over 200 business and community leaders, artists and art lovers who come together to celebrate AOE Arts Council activities on behalf of Ottawa’s artists and arts organizations.

For one night only, blast-off to another dimension with Ottawa’s arts, business and community leaders – mix and mingle in the futuristic retro Richcraft Theatre while enjoying a galaxy of food and beverages prepared by many of Ottawa’s best. Then, you will be beamed to the stage of the Harold Shenkman Hall for an interstellar tasting experience in vintage planetary glamour.

Earthlings can come in cocktail attire or in costume, if they dare. Whether you enjoy the kitschy futurism of The Jetsons© or the vintage celestial romanticism of the 1900s, ARTinis will be one fundraiser that is not to be missed. Tickets are $100 each or a party of 6 for $540 until August 31.

Guests will experience a solar system to enjoy including this year’s signature ARTinis cocktail | sensational live music | dramatic artistic demonstrations | costume contest with prizes in various categories | a fine selection of wine and craft beer vendors | exceptional gastronomical tastings presented by various food vendors | an array of fun and games | a unique guest experience in space themed décor | an exclusive on-stage sit-down tasting menu in a vintage theme | a twinkling silent auction all in support of Arts Network Ottawa.

A thriving arts scene builds a community where we all want to live and work, and Arts Network Ottawa (formerly AOE Arts Council) works passionately to advance the Ottawa region’s local arts scene. For more than 30 years, we have collaborated with communities to promote the creative, social and economic benefits of local Arts and will continue to do so. We provide an informed voice for a bilingual network, across the Ottawa region, of over 400 artists, cultural workers and arts organizations. As an arts service organization, we are an essential connection to opportunities, resources, programs and partnerships that advance careers and the sustainability of Ottawa’s arts community.

Our work is made possible by sponsors, donors, our members and the following funders: City of Ottawa, Ontario Arts Council, Ontario Trillium Foundation, Government of Canada and the ARTicipate Endowment Fund.

Proceeds raised through ARTinis support Arts Network Ottawa, enabling us to deliver programs and services that advance our local arts scene and build a community where we all want to live.
