A visit to the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa is an invitation to explore one of the most impressive collections of Canadian and Indigenous arts, both historically and of today. On view in ‘Canadian and Indigenous rt, From Time Immemorial to 1967’, is a unique assortment of art ranging from rare artifacts to abstract paintings, all equally interesting and important in tracing the history of Canadian and Inuit life. The vastness of Canadian culture and its history can be viewed from a wide range of perspectives and periods in this special exhibit. Time travel back to 1840 for a chance to see a ceremonial coat by an unknown Nascapi artist, or a beaded sash from the early 19th century. Or take in celebrated abstract paintings by artists Tom Thomson or Emily Carr among others. This is a rare opportunity to see Canada like never before.
The National Gallery of Canada is located at 380 Sussex Drive, Ottawa and is open everyday. Click Here to visit the official website
