The Lorraine 'Fritzi' Yale Gallery displays works by a range of contemporary local artists.

Our mission is to promote local artists within the region and present art works that express local talent whether it be from emerging or professional artists.

The 'Fritzi' Gallery is dedicated to the collaborative process and offers the public the unique experience of being able to enjoy theatre and visual arts. Located on the 2nd floor of the Irving Greenberg Theatre Centre. The Fritzi is open for visits anytime the front doors are open. You can take a stroll through the current exhibit and if you find a piece that particularly moves you, you can purchase it. All of the artwork is for sale!


The Fritzi Gallery opened to the public in the fall of 2007 thanks to the generous gift made by Janet Yale, in honour of her late mother and artist, Lorraine 'Fritzi' Yale and TELUS.

Cyborgization by Laurence Finet

September 11 - October 21, 2018

The Ottawa School of Art presents new works by Diploma Student Laurence Finet.  Laurence is a Chelsea based artist currently working in the mediums of Printmaking, Painting and Digital Photography.  

Much of Laurence’ work is a result of experimentation with concept and process.  In this body of work she explores the theme of ‘relationship between technology and human emotion’.  The images she creates are implicative of human bones and tissue.  But there is a certain playful opposition between these organic forms and the artificially produced shapes she uses to create them.        

Finet has exhibited her work in various galleries in Ontario and Quebec.  Her work is also found in private collections in Canada, Belgium and Italy.

About the Artist

Her work has been recognized by several awards of excellence including scholarships from the Ottawa School of Art along with prizes outside of the school. She currently resides and works in Chelsea, Quebec.

Laurence Finet (Mons, Belgium, 1976) graduated in the Fine Arts Diploma program at the Ottawa School of Art in June 2018. In 2014, she decided to concentrate on the development of her artistic practice. She has participated in various group and solo exhibitions.
