The Gallery

The Sussex Contemporary is dedicated to showcasing emerging contemporary artists and bringing together unexpected and experimental programming. The gallery is excited to share a vast spectrum of artworks including sculpture, painting, drawing, photography and mixed-media based works. Located in the heart of downtown Ottawa, the gallery's focus is to support process based art and exhibitions. The Sussex Contemporary looks to bring the artist’s studio into the archetypal, crisp gallery arena with programming celebrating process as exhibition also and with an ongoing residency program. The gallery looks forward to participating actively in art fairs and contributing to national and international art dialogs. 


The Residency

Along with ongoing exhibitions, select artists will be invited to participate in a residency at The Sussex Contemporary. They will occupy the gallery and treat it as their studio with the hopes bringing insight into art making and shedding light to the intimacy of studio trials and tribulations.
