Alpha Art gallery -THE MAECENAS OF ART and OTTAWA CULTURAL LIFE.

Art gives soulfulness to life, deepens its spiritual dimension and refines it through the experience of aesthetic pleasure. To stand before a work of art is to feel one of life’s greatest mysteries - the power and beauty of creative expression. Such experiences are afforded to the patrons of visual art by Alpha Gallery, located in the heart of Canada’s capital at 25 Murray Street.

This gem of a gallery exhibits masterful creations of Canadian artists, such as Sokolowski, Coulombe, MJ Roy, Beaucage, and Dego, as well as internationally renowned painters, such as Vladimir Velickovic. However, what makes this gallery unique is the fact that its owners, Edith and her artist husband Dominik Sokolowski are more than just noble champions of visual art. In an ambiance imbued with warm hospitality, sparkling conversations, and delectable refreshments, Edith and Dominik host classical and jazz music concerts, literary salons and book launches promoting and sponsoring Canadian culture.

The blend of pulsating colours on the wall, sensual piano notes, and book excerpts read by local actors turns every evening at this cultural oasis into a memorable experience. Moreover, events organized by Alpha Gallery continually enrich the community, raise the profile and visibility of artists, musicians and authors, and in turn, attract a generous support and involvement from local businesses like restaurants, gourmet chefs and sommeliers and distilleries.
