WEST is a free tour that is organized annually by the artists themselves. This collective has evolved into a dynamic group of 20+ artists who love their trade and warmly invite you to experience their latest creations and the unique environments that they created them in. The tour is a rare opportunity for art-lovers to leave the echo of the gallery and enter the warm and welcoming place where the art is inspired and made. With an ever-growing roster of talent in our community, you might be surprised to discover some of that creativity happening in your own backyard. The tour offers you that opportunity to explore your neighbourhood.

Pick up a tour map at businesses throughout the West end, art stores and libraries across Ottawa. An electronic map is also available on our Map page.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
