Through art shows and collaborations, BEING has become an important part of Ottawa’s art community. These events often open up opportunities for individuals and corporations to buy paintings and other works of art by our artists. The proceeds from these sales help us to continue to purchase art supplies and fund our program. It also supports the studio’s revenue sharing program which provides earned-income for the artists.
