Recently I received the good news of acceptance into the Ontario Society of Artists. The OSA was founded in 1872 and is Canada's oldest continuously operating artists' society. The OSA played an important role in establishing several major Canadian art institutions such as the Royal Canadian Academy of the Arts, the National Gallery of Canada, the Toronto Art Gallery, (currently the Art Gallery of Ontario), and the Ontario College of Art, (currently the Ontario College of Art and Design).
This group fosters and promotes the visual arts in all disciplines through exhibitions, special projects, and arts advocacy. I'm very honoured to be an elected member!
