art in Ottawa

“It’s a good opportunity to get your work out there and it’s really hard, especially when you’re an undergrad, people don’t know how to get themselves published—we actually have a place at the university that offers people that and nobody knows about it.”—Hayley Munro, OAR editorial assistant.

“That’s something that I really appreciate about the Ottawa art scene—you have more freedom because there is no trend, because there is no pride in just being here, you just have to make work.”—Jinny Yu, associate professor of painting at the University of Ottawa
