ARTISTS OF WEST
2023 TOUR MAP
GET TO KNOW US
The annual West End Studio Tour (WEST) is a pleasant walking, biking or driving Tour of art studios located just west of downtown Ottawa.
The artists of the West End Studio Tour (WEST) invite you to celebrate 29 years of community art over the weekend of September 21st & 22nd from 11:00 am -5:00 pm.
NOTE: We are now a one-weekend tour.
The WEST boundaries are:
East of Woodroffe Ave
North of Carling Ave
South of the Ottawa River
West of Preston St
In a neighbourhood known both as Ottawa’s “Arts District” and “Gastro Alley”. It is one of the longest-running studio tours in the region. Hailing back to 1994, the WEST has always been a free tour that is cooperatively organized and juried by the artists themselves.
The artist collective has evolved into a dynamic group who love their trade and warmly invite you to experience their latest creations and the unique environments that they create them in. The tour is a rare opportunity for art-lovers to leave the echo of the gallery and, instead, visit spaces where artists use their inspiration to form various media into rich visual displays for your pleasure. With an ever-growing roster of talent in our community, you might be surprised to discover some of the creativity happening just steps away.
The last few years will be embedded in our memories as years when life took unexpected turns, but when we also found strength in community, art, and music. Thank you Ottawa art lovers for your continued support.
