Bev Clark:My journey continues as I work with, colour harmony, loose brushstrokes and composition. My acrylic paintings are primarily of nature’s wonders, including animals that share our lives and those who live outside our influence. My goal is to keep moving forward, express myself through my work, celebrating what moves me. Capturing that instant we all can appreciate. There’s no end to were I can go. That’s what I love about being an artist.

Maria Hansford: My Italian heritage and the 15 years I lived in Pakistan have a great influence on my artwork. I have always loved art and creating things. Several years ago, I fell in love with bead embroidery. It is an extremely versatile technique that allows me to combine different media and materials.

Guest Artist Schedule 

About The Guest Artist Program

The Guest Artist program at the Owen Sound Artists’ Co-operative is a great way participate with our group. Monthly, we host three artists in a dedicated spot in our gallery. This program is extremely popular and we have long waiting lists! We are hoping to accept more guests monthly in the future. When we are looking for new members, we often look at the list of past guest members.

How To Apply

Our Legacy Gallery Committee juries work submitted monthly, and if the work seems to be a good fit with our establishment, a month is determined with the input of our membership member. We ask potential guests to fill out a guest artist’s application.   Please plan to bring work in for jurying two to three days before the monthly committee meeting and arrange to pick up the next day. (Contact the store manager for details on the monthly date).

A good representation of your work must be submitted and appear as it would for sale and display in the store, i.e. all paintings, drawings must be titled, framed and/or glazed and ready for hanging. All work must be intended for sale. No more than 6 items please. Any relevant information regarding working methods, materials and pricing should accompany your work along with a brief artist’s biography or resume.   When choosing you pieces, think of a body of cohesive work, rather than all the different styles or disciplines you practice.
