Art unveiled: EBA opens its studio doors for rare glimpse into artistic process

Danny Hussey (website/Twitter) is a Nova Scotia-born mixed-medium artist and painter who’s been living in Ottawa for more than a decade. His work can be found in the collection of the City of Ottawa, the Nova Scotia Art Bank, as well as corporate collections, such as Nortel Networks and Organza Foods. He’s also an EBA artist.

Fall wouldn’t be fall without two things: blowing leaves, pumpkins … and the EBA Open Studio.

Okay, that’s three things. But that third one is really cool.

Every October, Enriched Bread Artists — a long-standing non-profit artist-co op located in a former bread factory — opens its doors to the public, showcasing contemporary art and providing a glimpse into the artistic process.

Opening night is tonight, so you should take a stroll on over to 951 Gladstone Avenue (west of Preston), where the studio and gallery space will be open to the public allowing you to view some of Ottawa’s best contemporary art. Plus, there will be a DJ.

The open house also runs Oct. 21-23 and Oct. 28-30. (Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays)

This year marks our 19th Annual Open Studio and we have 19 artists (including myself) displaying their work, with something for everyone to enjoy. Check out this video that the Ottawa Citizen made:

Admission is free. Hope to see you there.

Thanks, Danny! The Citizen describes EBA as a “warren of magical doors that will open to  … art in any of many forms.” Check it out!
