Great News from OSA Member Bob Tunnoch

Some exciting news from OSA member Bob Tunnoch:

Here are two paintings by Bob Tunnoch. The first one is called “Undercover, Amazon Horned Frog” oil on canvas 27″ x 35″. This painting won 1st award of excellence Best in Show from the SCA online international juried show. The second one was acquired by the Juno’s Art is Art for they’re permanent collection. It’s called “Species at Risk” oil on board 24″ x 30″.

In a gallery type setting a head pokes through a wall with a toad on his head. The person in the painting is drummer Sonnie Bernardi. Sonnie played with the bands Crowbar, The Guess Who etc. I consider musicians a species at risk because of downloading, lack of venues to play etc, On top of his head is an endangered Fowler’s toad. This is a Canadian species which is a risk. Have a great weekend.

OSA Member E.B. Cox’ Sculptures

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.
