Oakville is home to a diverse and vibrant arts community, and for the last 38 years the Oakville Arts Council has been the art sector’s “One Voice”; nurturing and strengthening this dynamic community through a variety of arts programming and advocacy initiatives.

"Showing my collection "3D Printing Artforms in Nature" at the Corridor Galleries at QEPCCC has been a very gratifying experience. Aside from having the opportunity to show my work and getting exposure, I have sold a few pieces and have contacted by the Oakville Public Library to contribute to their educational programs for the public on the topic of 3D printing. Thank you for nurturing and facilitating arts in our community."
