The Ottawa Valley Family Health Team is a medical clinic located at 95 Spring Street. In our patient waiting area, we have two small walls devoted to the exhibition of art.


A couple of years ago, we opened the space with photography by Rod Trider and in the intervening time have shown paintings by Amelia Ah You, children’s art, prints from an artists’ collective in Africa, photography by Allan Mirabelli, and many others; the current exhibit of Cathy Walsh acrylic paintings is stunning.

Partly in response to patient requests, we are now looking to mount a Christmas-themed show, and are asking artists to contribute; the show will hang from mid-November to mid-January.

We welcome any and all media — if it can hang on the wall, we will put it up. We have an AS Hanging system with rods and hooks which support up to 50 pounds per hook. Please consider the loan of your work for the festive season- we hear daily that our art wall brightens up the day for so many patients.
