A Killaloe-based arts group is getting ready to host its first gala celebration.

The Ottawa Valley Creative Arts Open Studio has been offering workshops in a variety of mediums to members around the Ottawa Valley for four years.

Artistic Director Andy Trull says it’s about letting participants express themselves artistically right away, when they walk through the door. He says the studio is always looking for new artists-in-residence at open calls as well as members to join the team.

The Eat Your Art Out gala is happening Saturday at 6:30pm at the Killaloe and Area Lion’s Club hall. It’s inspired by autumn and will be telling the story of November through a six-course meal, music, art and more. For full details, click here.
