Ottawa Light, 2017, by Elizabeth Elkin

The Ontario Society of Artists and the Government of Ontario Art Collection online exhibit

Founded in 1872, the Ontario Society of Artists (OSA) is Canada’s oldest continuously operating professional art society. This revised exhibit explores the OSA’s fascinating history tied to art education, provincial galleries, and the Government of Ontario Art Collection (GOAC). Featuring historic and contemporary donations by OSA artists to the GOAC, including 28 new works received in 2020, it offers a glimpse of Ontario through the eyes of its talented artists.
