I am pleased to be a member of the Owen Sound Artists' Co-op since 2012 and am honoured to have my photographic canvases and prints exhibited along with the work of some of the region's finest artists and artisans.
The Owen Sound Artists' Co-op features a wonderful collection of unique fine art and craft reflecting the creativity of the thriving regional arts community. The Co-op features 45 members representing a wide variety of mediums including (but not limited to) pottery, glass, jewelry, woodworking, textile, painting, and of course photography.  For more information, visit the Owen Sound Artists' Co-op at 942 2nd Avenue East, Owen Sound, Ontario, N4K 1S4, or online at www.artistscoop.ca.
As a result of the Covid 19 pandemic, the Artists’ Co-op which had been closed from mid March to mid May, partially reopened. Here is their recent announcement:
"We have re-opened! We will have reduced hours and limit the number of people in at any given time. Our new temporary hours of operation have changed and will be 11 am - 3 pm, Wednesday to Saturday. We are still encouraging curb side pickups whenever possible. Contact us if you have any questions: 519-371-0479 or info@artistscoop.ca" (May 20, 2020)
While I do not usually post individual items currently for sale at the Owen Sound Artists’ Co-op here on my website, these are unusual times.  I will do my best to keep this page updated with the work I currently have available at the Artists’ Co-op. Items do turn over frequently and you are invited to call or email the Artists’s Co-op to check on availability.
