The artists of the West End Studio Tour (WEST) invite you to celebrate 25 years of community art with a safe and socially distant art show and sale on two consecutive weekends: September19-20 from 11 a.m.-5 p.m and September 26-27, 2020 from 11 a.m.-5 p.m.

WEST is one of the longest-running studio tours in the region. We are pleased to continue that quarter century tradition with an open-air tour, based on Covid-19 guidelines from Ottawa Public Health.

Each artist will display their work outside of their homes or studios with physical distancing and access organized according to these guidelines. Maps of the locations will be available on the WEST website and in the September edition of the Kitchissippi Times.

WEST is a pleasant walking, biking, or driving tour featuring a broad range of art. This year’s free tour is organized by the following artists:

Tracy Armstrong, Janet Bell, Richard Bond, Lynette Chubb, Lenka Cutler, Margaret Chwialkowska, Wendy Feldberg, Alison Fowler, David W. Jones, Maciek Peter Kozlowski, Paula Mitas Zoubek, D. H. Monet, Rajeev Nath, Janie Park, Manju Sah, Pamela Stewart and Venz Vesselinov.

These artists live and work in Ottawa’s west end and thrive on the community contacts fostered over 25 years. Thank you for your continued support in this exceptionally challenging year.

2020 will be embedded in our memories as a year in which life took unexpected turns but when we also found strength in community, art, and music.

We look forward to celebrating these creative endeavours with all Ottawans.
