Art and Writing

The Ottawa River watershed is a place of great natural beauty and has been a source of inspiration for many artists and writers past and present. In this section of our website you will find contemporary and heritage art, information on the A.Y. Jackson Trail, photographs, poems and prose, all inspired by the beauty and wonder of the Ottawa River and its' watershed.

See our Watershed Ways article, "Celebrating the art of the Ottawa River watershed" for an overview of some of the artists who have been inspired by the Ottawa River watershed.
