The Sussex Contemporary is one of Ottawa’s newest art galleries and event spaces, located in the heart of the ByWard Market. The gallery showcases a variety of artwork including sculptures, paintings, drawings, photography and media-based works — all of which represents a range of artists from those just emerging, to mid-career and senior artists from Canada and around the world.
This stunning open-concept venue boasts 2,200 sq. ft. of space across the main gallery and loft-style mezzanine, with 20-foot ceilings, original exposed stone, and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the historic Clarendon courtyard. There is room to accommodate up to 130 guests for standing receptions or up to 90 guests for seated dinners.
The Sussex is ideal for any event ranging from art shows and intimate social gatherings - such as weddings, graduation or retirement parties - to photo-shoots, corporate functions, or pop-up events. The open-concept and simple design make for a completely customizable space.
