Situated just inside the front entrance of the Nepean Sportsplex, the Foyer Gallery showcases original works of art created by a select group of visual artists from the Ottawa area. Membership in the group is subject to evaluation by an independent jury to ensure that art in the gallery is always of a professional calibre. Gallery members work in a wide variety of media, ranging from oils, watercolours, acrylics, graphite, charcoal, coloured pencils, fibre art and photography to sculptural works in wood, metal, clay, marble and glass.

The gallery operates as an artist-run cooperative gallery, and is staffed by friendly volunteers. Exhibitions include themed Group shows, Focus shows featuring the work of three or four artists, and Solo shows. Exhibitions typically change every three weeks, so there is always something new to see.
