Today the OSA is a society of contemporary, practicing artists. We do not have any archivists or evaluators on staff and can not give appraisals. Our archival material resides in the Archives of the Province of Ontario — even so, the documents there relate primarily to the proceedings of the OSA, and does not include historical or biographical information about former members. So if you have a work of art you would like to know more about, our recommendations are that you approach an auction house specializing in Canadian fine art, or find a professional evaluator who specializes in the period of your treasure. Unfortunately, this is not something we can help you with.
Please note that the method of dating below is inconsistent. Sometimes a date range will reference an artist’s entire life; in some cases it is the range of dates that he or she was a member of the OSA.
*An asterisk indicates that the member served as President of the OSA.
