This Month: February

Beth Grant: Beth Grant is a glass bead artist inspired by the colours found in the natural world. She melts glass rods in a flame and winds the molten glass around a mandrel, carefully shaping the bead before it goes into the kiln to slowly cool. These beads were inspired by The Beach!

 

Abagayle Premrl: Abby is our Next Generation Artist for January and February.

My name is Abby Premrl I’m 16 years old. I am hoping to become a photographer and an artist. I prefer taking nature photos and pet portraits. My hobbies are riding horses and practicing my skills. I hope to become a better and better photographer as I grow. The reason I wanted to become a photographer/ artist is because I have seen some of the changes that environmentalist painters or photographers have made through their art, and I aspire to be like them one day.

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.
