Visual Arts

Close
OAC programs help individual artists, collectives, galleries, festivals and other organizations that bring the best in visual art — painting, drawing, printmaking, installation, sculpture, book works, performance art, photography and electronic media — to audiences across the province.

In fulfilling its mandate, the OAC serves one of the most diverse cultural, racial, linguistic and Aboriginal populations in Canada. Through its programs and services, the OAC supports artists, organizations and communities across Ontario, and welcomes all forms of artistic expression and practice.
