The Gallery

Art gives soulfulness to life, deepens its spiritual dimension and refines it through the experience of aesthetic pleasure. To stand before a work of art is to feel one of life’s greatest mysteries - the power and beauty of creative expression. Such experiences are afforded to the patrons of visual art by Alpha & Omega Gallery.  A&O is located in the heart of Canada’s capital at 101 Murray Street, steps away from National Art Gallery. This gem of a gallery exhibits masterful creations of Canadian artists, such as Marc Gagne, Fuad Hamdi , Lainie Towell, Luisa Gecolea as well as internationally renowned painters, such as Vladimir Velickovic.  ​

The blend of pulsating colours on the wall, sensual piano notes, and book excerpts read by local actors turns every evening at this cultural oasis into a memorable experience.  Moreover, events organized by Alpha & Omega Gallery continually enrich the community, raise the profile and visibility of artists, musicians and authors, and in turn, attract a generous support and involvement from local businesses like restaurants, gourmet chefs and sommeliers and distilleries.

The gallery is a beautiful and unique space, available for rent for special occasions such as weddings, graduations, barmitzvah, etc.
