Visual Arts Store
The Sherry Welden Visual Arts store
Named in memory of artist and uOttawa BFA Alum, Sherry Welden, the art supply store offers affordable materials catering exclusively to the needs of our students, the alumni and the many artists in the Capital Region. Photo, Painting, Sculpture and Media students will find supplies specifically related to their individual courses. The Store has expanded to include a wide array of materials suitable for use in our metal and wood shops, for course projects and studio practices.
Our profit-controlled art supply store offers affordable materials that cater to the needs of our students, alumni as well as artists in the region. Photo, Painting, Sculpture and Media students will find supplies related to their individual courses. Many top brands are carried, with an emphasis on supporting Canada-owned companies. In recent years the store has expanded to include a wider array of choices in materials to be used in our metal and wood shops. Special orders may be accommodated and suggestions are welcome.
The store is currently closed due to the pandemic and we are not sure of a reopen date.
