Open Studio 2013

Open Studio 21

All artists dream of a pilgrimage to Europe, and, this summer the majority of our members have had their big European adventure! EBA has travelled out of its own bread factory to visit another bread factory in The Hague where artists also work and create. While on the continent, when taking a break from tasting European baked goods, they made and displayed new art, which they will be exhibiting and discussing at our 21st Annual Open Studio.

When those young artists started EBA years ago, the “Legal Age” was 21 and it seemed so far away. Now that EBA has passed that milestone we look for new challenges. In our adult years we continue to inspire the Ottawa community to think, see and talk about the vibrancy of the arts. Come join us!
