It’s one thing to see finished artwork in a gallery, but are you ever curious about what goes on behind the scenes in the life of an artist? For two weekends every year, members of Ottawa’s Enriched Bread Artists (EBA) collective pulls back the curtain on this mystery, opening their creative workspaces to the public.

This fall, our 31st Annual Open Studio will kick off with a party.
Thursday October 19th and the following two weekends, visitors will get the chance not only to view an exhibit of EBA artists’ latest creations, but also to have a sneak peek into the studios where the magic happens. Paint splatters, aprons, oddities and all.
We can’t wait to see you there!
