Opening Night Vernissage Event
Join us for a swanky evening soirée, featuring the NOIR fine art exhibition with over 50+ professional artists from Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal and regions in between. This masquerade-themed vernissage will also showcase a live performance by Ottawa's acclaimed musical creator, Rebecca Noelle, who regularly graces the stages of Bluesfest and NAC, as well as live painting by artist, An Nguyen!
The event will also offer a cocktail hour, and an exciting silent auction in support of Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation. Funds raised through the auction will be directed to the "Building Space Between the Walls" Campaign - a construction project repurposing space inside the hospital to build a comfortable, modern, fully-equipped space for 15 bed bays at QCH. Learn more about this.

Wall Candy is a grassroots operation created by artists for artists to bring meaningful exhibition opportunities to artists.
Founded in 2018 by Christina Lovisa, Wall Candy was first held at the Horticulture Building in Lansdowne Park.
With the support of fellow artists Judy Anderson and Andrea Elena, Wall Candy grew from 60 artists in 2018, to 140 artists in 2019 at the Aberdeen Pavillion in Lansdowne Park. Though 2020 presented many challenges, organizers Christina and Andrea continued planning, and held a September event in 2021 at Wesley Clover Park.
This year, we are returning to the Horticulture Building for our first NOIR event, and fourth Wall Candy exhibition!
