Ontario Society of Artists - Contemporary Landscapes


My huge week! 3 paintings sold AND I  received news this afternoon that I was elected yesterday to membership in the Ontario Society of Artists . I can now put OSA after my name!  The membership roster is SO impressive -- including Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven and Doris McCarthy! I can hardly breathe!!

This is a portion of  the letter of acceptance and congratulations that I received: "The OSA has a long tradition, which began with its founding in 1872. We are Canada's oldest continuously operating artists' society. The OSA was instrumental in establishing major art institutions, such as the Royal Canadian Academy of the Arts, the National Gallery of Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Ontario College of Art. Among its offshoots are the Canadian Society of Graphic Art, the Sculptors' Society of Canada and the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour."  

I feel very honoured to belong in such a prestigious group of artists.

Thank you for your interest!
