WASAGA ARTISTS are a "NOT FOR PROFIT" Group of independent artists dedicated to promoting the arts in our community and area via: networking with other art groups, community service clubs; and our OUTREACH PROGRAM (Brownies and Seniors Residences) ..... to share our love of the arts.
Membership is open to everyone; and includes a variety of mediums: oils, acrylics, watercolours, sketching, pastels, mixed media, wood burning, photography, pottery, jewellery, fabric art and sculptures.
We meet weekly from the beginning of September to the end of June, at the Wasaga RecPlex in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, to work on our art of choice, have friendly critiques, and to inspire and learn from each other. Our group includes casual and recreational artists. We also have members who are individuals recognized in Canada, including members in the Ontario Society of Arts, art professionals, and former art instructors.
We host two art shows each year, and hold several (3-5) informative demonstrations on techniques in different mediums. Members have the opportunity to display their artwork on our web page (go to ARTISTS and click on names in RED), or to display your ARTWORK in one of our ART GALLERIES (at the Rec Plex/Municipal Town Hall).
For current information and dates see Events.
WASAGA ARTISTS annual membership fee is $40.00; and runs from September to the end of June.
(A pro rated membership fee is available for new comers joining later in the season.)
We welcome new members and are always looking for new ideas to further develop our group.
