Ottawater features the work of Jay Anderson, John Jarrett, Strachan Johnston, Olaf Krassnitzky, Bernard Lévesque, Pina Manoni-Rennick, Paul Schibli, and Karl Schutt
Plan to celebrate Canada Rivers Day, Sunday, June 10, at the Ottawater Vernissage when Ottawa Riverkeeper Meredith Brown will give a free public talk. Meredith is a strong, science-based voice for the Ottawa River, acting as its full-time “watchdog” since 2004.
