A vibrant community of artists in the Orangeville, Ontario area.

About

Briefly About the Orangeville Art Group

In the spring of 1955, nine women met in the basement of Westminster United Church and christened themselves the Orangeville Art Club. Bonded by a shared love of painting, these friends became the driving force behind a group which would span nearly six decades.

The Orangeville Art group (OAG) is a not for profit organization. Today this community is a premier visual art organization in the Headwaters Region. Our mandate is:

  • To provide a forum for the mutual benefit of artists and artisans in the community;
  • To provide opportunities for members to nurture creativity, improve their skills, and to display and sell original work;
  • To contact and exchange ideas with other organizations, and to cooperate with such other organizations for mutual benefit;
  • To become known in and be of benefit to the community.

A highlight of our year is the Annual Show in October, featuring works in watercolour, oil, acrylic, pastels, and other mediums as well as pottery, jewelry, and sculpture. Our 48th Annual Show, the Fall Fantasy Art Show, took place on September 29-30, 2018. It was hosted at the Lord Dufferin Centre.

The OAG offers a diverse range of one day workshops open to all under the leadership of a renowned artist and in the company of fellow artists. Art Talks and Paint-In days are also offered intermittently throughout the year.

In the last few years the OAG has held other shows at various locations, some of which featured juried work. Locations include the Tony Rose Banquet Hall, the Gallery at Maggiolly’s on Broadway, the Orangeville Mall, The Best Western Inn and Suites and three-dimensional art displays in the Orangeville Town Hall.

Members have the opportunity to display works in several permanent Orangeville and area locations. These include the main lobby of the Headwaters Health Care Centre. This display is changed every 3 months to provide visual enjoyment to all visitors to the hospital. The artists donate 20% of sales to the Headwaters Health Care Foundation. We also display our work at the Orangeville Library at the Mill Street branch.
