About Us

The Wasaga Artists are a group of likeminded, creatives who wish to connect with other local art groups, community service clubs, and a few outreach programs, in order to share our love for the arts. Our group welcomes artists of all ages, skill level, and and backgrounds. Whether you are a quilter, painter, sculptor, or photographer, there is a place for every artist who wishes to share their creativity in a safe space, full of support and encouragement.

Under normal circumstances, our group would meet every week from the start of September until the end of June, at the Wasaga RecPlex. Though we all know we are facing a new chapter these days and must keep our community safe and healthy. At this time, we have put our in person meetings on pause and will resume when it is safe to do so. In the mean time, we are encouraging our members to share what they wish via emails, social media platforms, and this website!

Normally, each year, we would host two art shows and hold several workshops with fellow artists in order to learn new techniques in different mediums. Members have the opportunity to display their artwork here on our website, or to put on display in one of our ART GALLERIES at either the Rec Plex or the Municipal Town Hall.

If you are interested in becoming a member, please fill out our contact form. (We offer a pro rated membership fee is available for new comers joining later in the season).
