Open Studio 2023

31st Annual Open Studio!

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.

EBA is a not-for-profit arts organization located on the first and second floors of 951 Gladstone Avenue in the former factory built by the Standard Bread Company.
Having 21 individual studios on two floors, the artists have their own space to create in innovative ways and expand their potential as creatives. Their ideas and results are diverse and innovative with paint, paper, printmaking, photography, sculpture, installation and multi-media creations.

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 are proud to share with our community our passion, our space and our works.
We can’t wait to see you there!
