OSA Eastern Hub members: Two exhibition opportunities

Greetings,
 
My name is Anne Cavanagh. I have had the pleasure of meeting most of you. For those who don’t know me, I am an OSA Member located in Peterborough, overseeing OSA Eastern Hub (OSA-Eh!). This sub-group of OSA members lives east of Toronto, with an eye to exhibiting closer to home. We have generally area of east of Hwy 35 – north and south of Peterborough and east through to the Quebec border.
 
Benefits OSA Eastern Hub include reducing travel time to facilitate artwork drop off, pick up, and receptions; putting our work in front of a fresh audience; and increasing our profile, both individually and collectively as an organization. 
 
I am writing to you to let you know about upcoming exhibition opportunities, important dates (including the 150th OSA Eh! Anniversary Exhibition in 2022):

OSA EASTERN HUB 150th ANNIVERSARY EXHIBITION 2022

(verbal commitment with the Art Gallery of Northumberland; specific dates TBA)
 
Exhibitions at the AGN are selected by the AGN’s Exhibitions Committee. Olinda Casimiro, the Executive Director of the AGN, recently asked if we could send an exhibition proposal, and if possible, before December 10. Despite short notice, I am hoping to meet this deadline. In order to make this happen, I require images of artwork from OSA EH! Members.

This work does not have to be the work you are planning to display for the anniversary exhibition. Simply, an image depicting work that gives a sense of the style, size and medium.

Apologies for the short notice!

TRACES: An art exhibition at the Arts and Letters Club. Peter Large, OSA member and Felicity Somerset

TRACES

The ‘TRACES’ exhibition currently on show at the Arts and Letters Club of Toronto is an applauded collaboration of fifty drawings and photographs by Club members Felicity Somerset (photography) and Peter Large (drawings) of ‘traces’ left by past generations of settlers in Eastern Ontario.

The exhibition , the result of two artists working separately toward a common idea,  has achieved a rare balance of artistic interpretations and media.

The exhibition continues to November 22, 2019.
