WAAC member Christy Chor has been elected as a member of the Ontario Society of Artists (OSA)
Founded in 1872, the Ontario Society of Artists is Canada’s longest continuing art society. The OSA is a professional association for visual artists living and working across Ontario with a mandate to promote the visual arts through exhibitions, special projects and arts advocacy. Their membership roster includes many of Canada’s best-known painters, sculptors, printmakers and photographers. The OSA membership consists of over two hundred artists, working in a wide range of media and from diverse backgrounds and cultures.
The OSA was instrumental in establishing major art institutions, such as the Royal Canadian Academy of the Arts, the National Gallery of Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Ontario College of Art.
