Orange Art Gallery "The Old Train Station" Exhibition
This exhibition portrays scenes from Ottawa’s original train station which was once the hub of a dirty, industrial Ottawa in a hardworking age, before it became a glistening modern capital. Well known Ottawa Artist Bhat Boy has applied his signature style of painting to this marvelous collection of works based on archival photographs. The exhibition will be held at Orange Art Gallery which is located in the 120 year old former railroad bank for CN railway.
Built in 1909, the Old Train Station was Ottawa’s premier downtown location across from the Fairmont Château Laurier; it was closed in 1966. After the Grand Trunk Station officially opened in 1912, numerous historical arrivals and departures were recorded from the old Ottawa Train station such as New Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry departing for the First World War from the station before changing its name to Union Station. The building is now under major renovations.
Please join us on opening night, Thursday, Nov 2nd, 6-10pm
The exhibit runs until Nov 19th.
