The OSA has received an invitation from Kathy Sutton – the daughter of OSA member E.B. Cox (1914-2003), widely accepted as the foremost Canadian sculptor in stone. In addition, her father was a member of the OSA-led group which lobbied the Ontario Government to create Killarney Park in the 1960s.
Two events will be held during September which will give us a chance to see his sculptures. All members of the OSA are encouraged to show their support for public art by attending one or both events.
