My main focus currently is working and playing with mixed media collage. During the process of recombining materials I make decisions based on the elements of colour, shape, surface, dimension, and I welcome the contribution that ‘serendipity’ plays in the outcome. The layering allows me to simultaneously reveal and conceal and ultimately bring cohesion to disparate parts, creating a new whole – in a sometimes surprising, sometimes challenging, sometimes beautiful way.

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 one to two 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 Board of Directors 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 guest to fill out a guest artists application. Please plan to bring work in for jurying the day of the monthly board 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. Please bring work in for jurying the day of the monthly board meeting and arrange to pick up the next day.
