We’re in our 20th year, but just in case you haven’t heard about us, DIMENSIONS is an annual “sculpture only” exhibit by the National Capital Network of Sculptors – right here in Ottawa!
Planning starts a year ahead and there is a lot of behind the scenes coordination involved. From building and painting the wood pedestals to planning and laying out the floor plan. The artists work in a variety of mediums from stone, wood and metal, to clay, glass and mixed media. They spend a full year creating new pieces for the exhibit. The result is a top quality, museum style exhibition that’s FREE to the public!
The Horticulture Building at Lansdowne Park is the perfect venue with its high ceilings, lots of natural light and easy accessibility. Participate in a stone carving workshop on Saturday afternoon – best of all, there’s no charge if you want to take part.
This year there are 24 artists showing over 100 sculptures. Come meet the artists, get a close-up look at some amazing sculptures and support your local art community. You can also help support our local Boys and Girls Club by getting a head start on your holiday shopping in our cozy little Gift Shop. Pop in for a quick peak or stay for as long as you like, there’s something for everyone.
Opening night is Friday, October 12th from 6 to 9pm. Enjoy our Octoberfest reception, meet the artists and enjoy the world premiere of some amazing sculptures.
We’re open all day Saturday, October 13th, from 10am to 9pm – make it a date night and have dinner at one of the great restaurants in the Lansdowne Park area.
On Sunday, October 14th we’re open from 10am to 5pm along with our Farmer’s Market neighbours.
Mark your calendars and we will see you in October!
