Kanata and the greater Ottawa area has a lot of great talent and this little gallery gives them a chance to exhibit. The quality of work varies considerably, but they have shown large pieces that I would have loved to have in my house and regret not buying. I like to stop by whenever I go to the library in...

Not just paintings but mixed media, fabric art etc too. Paintings can be purchased. It is in the same Mlacak Arena building as the ice rink, local councillors office... More

Stopped in out of curiosity and quite honestly its hard to believe they call this an art gallery. Housed in a skating rink and library the gallery shows art that is just about what you would expect to see in a grade 8 highschool art class Ok if you like flower paintings and cutsy little old lady work but the...
