Electric Street Gallery supports Ottawa artists and Ottawa art enthusiasts
Why look for art?
We want to help you find art that you love so much you will make it a part of your life!
We aren't just looking to help you find a way to cover up a bare spot in your home. We're looking to help your walls express, and even perhaps expand, who you are. Art has long been a crucial element of what it means to be Canadian. It connects us to our environment and our world.
In these difficult times, the right artwork can provide solace as well as inspiration, connection as well as delight.
We do offer original paintings for sale, at competitive prices. We also offer beautiful craft series and reproductions for people on a tighter budget.
