John Bennett, OSA (1919-2017)

Diana Bennett,OSA and her father John Bennett, OSA in 2015.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our cherished and long time member John Bennett on April 17, 2017. John was elected to the Ontario Society of Artists in 1951. An inspiration to us all for his long active life. He will be missed.

Welcome New OSA Members of 2017

We are happy to announce that ten artists have been juried in as new members of the OSA. Every year applications for membership are open in the fall and our executive select finalists and then our members vote. It is a rigorous process, and this year we are welcoming ten artists into the OSA. They are Gill Cameron, Clement Cheng, Kaitlyn Mason, Sally Martin, Karen Taylor, Rayne Tunley, Bob Tunnoch, Evelyn Rapin, Radek Vizina, and Fan Zhang.

Congratulations to you all!
