This Month:


Adam Waugh: Adam is a long time wood worker who has recently started exploring other more artistic branches of wood craft. His sculptures are all hand carved with naturally sourced materials from his family farm located on the Bruce Peninsula. All materials are ethically  sourced and managed  to help minimize the impact on the land they are found on.

Paul Rankin: Paul was bon in Brampton, Ontario, but now lives in the Georgian Bluffs area.  Paul has been painting since he was 10 years old.  After studying Animation, Pual’s desire to capture the small details of his subject matter guided him to pursue a career in landscape and wildlife painting, which allows him to focus on realism.  Paul has been showing his work across North America since 1989.

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.
