Acclaimed Artists
The Wallack Galleries has presented well-known Canadian artists for years. Ottawa residents and visitors have had an opportunity to view such notables as Ken Tolmie, David Silverberg and Philippa Hunter. Internationally acclaimed Royal Academy artist Jennifer Dickson has had a 30-year collaboration with Wallack Galleries. She is considered one of Canada's most distinguished photographic artists. In 1975, The Wallack Galleries presented Norval Morrisseau. Morrisseau’s 2006 exhibition at the National Gallery of Canada was described as affirmation of his reputation as a modern-day master who has achieved national and international acclaim. Noted sculptor Roslyn Swartzman has also had her work on display at this gallery.
