Have you guessed yet that I absolutely love texture??!! This very upbeat oddly monotone interpretation of a colour chart, can be viewed on the main floor of the Ottawa Art Gallery in Arts Court, located downtown at 2 Daly Avenue. The OAG features only contemporary Canadian art and offers an exciting lineup of exhibitions, programs and events revolving around the modern school of thought. Back in the 1950's Ottawa residents O.J. and Isobel Firestone donated approximately 1,600 pieces of influential Canadian art – including works by Emily Carr and A.Y. Jackson – to the Ontario Heritage Foundation as a means for the art to remain accessible for everyone to enjoy. I'm sure they'd be delighted to see that their wish came true and to know the Firestone Collection of Canadian Art is highly appreciated by artists of all ages from across the globe.
