Canadian Arts Leadership Panel Discussion

For centuries, the arts have been used as a tool to tell stories that reflect the past and envision the future. At times when we feel the most divided, galleries, film and theatre have been able to build bridges across class, race and gender. Some of Canada’s most lauded arts institutions have newly appointed leadership. What opportunities do these new leaders see for their institutions and beyond in the coming decades? How can Canada harness it’s arts energy to inspire a new generation of Canadians in a world of distractions?

Join Canadian Club Toronto on February 11 when Weyni Mengesha (Artistic Director, Soulpepper), Sasha Suda (Director & CEO, National Gallery of Canada) and Joana Vicente (Executive Director & Co-Head, TIFF) discuss new leadership in the community, and opportunities for the next decade. 

OSA members can use the code “ARTS30” for a 30% discount off tickets and tables. Code can be applied at checkout.

Open Juried Call – Drawing: An Exhibition

Open Juried Call: Drawing: An Exhibition 

From the cave dwellers of Lascaux to the e-Drawings of our present century, the urge to draw is innate and impulsive.

Artists are invited to submit for consideration up to two drawings that stretch the boundaries of the medium. Be expansive and imaginative with the potential of this expressive form of communication. All types of drawing are welcome: figurative gestures; recordings of history and memory; two-, three- and multi-dimensional as well as site-specific works.

Gallery space is limited. Individual pieces must not exceed 48″ in width.

Two pieces may be submitted for $50 fee (via PayPal).
