This Month:


Judy Beddoe: I was a hairdresser all my working life and a passionate gardener.After I retired I started to paint with water colour. A few years later I took a course painting skies with acrylic which opened up a whole new world for me. I continue to paint with Studio xx and play in my garden.
Halina Shearman: With her flare for design and love of textiles, Halina has created colourful, original works of art for over 30 years. She found inspiration for her current line from her large personal collection of scarves.

The creations are made for real women, with all garments fitting from size zero all the way through to plus sizing and maternity. The garments not only work for all body types but for all occasions and seasons. Perfect for Mother of the bride, bridesmaids gifts, beach cover up, holiday parties and more.

Elizabeth MacLaughlin: I have always loved to draw, paint and create with my hands. When I was younger, I spent hours drawing caricatures of people and strange little animals. Later, I became a quilter, eventually moving into working with felt. Playing with fabric, felt and wool, I love it all!

Carter Caron: Carter is our Next Generation artist for May and June. Carter Caron. Carter is 18 years old and has been drawing for about as long as he can remember. He is self taught and is going to the university of Guelph in the fall for studio art. He enjoys practicing anatomy and working in pen, and has a background in digital illustration as well. Carter enjoys the work of many artists across social media, television and comics, and does observational drawing to practice. He aspires to be a character designer/concept artist in the game industry. 

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.
