Speaker: Karen Bailey
Title: Ottawa Mission Project
Description: This year the Ottawa Mission celebrates the 100th anniversary of the addition of a brick wing to the “Stonehouse” building at the corner of Daly and Waller. To commemorate this milestone, The Mission has partnered with the Ottawa Art Gallery and the artist Karen Bailey to profile the faces that have shaped our shelter over the years with a portrait exhibition to tell the stories of our clients, staff colleagues, volunteers, service partners and supporters through their faces and interactions with each other.
As a nationally recognized artist, Karen Bailey is a painter who focuses on unrepresented individuals, communities, and why their stories are important. Karen’s sensitive and empathetic brush captures perfectly those who have turned to The Mission for help, those who have provided it, and the profound connections between them.
