2018 Annual General Meeting
The 2018 AGM will be held on 7:00 pm on April 2, 2018 at 47 Browning Avenue. This is a good time to become a full member and to enjoy the added benefits that come with that. Call Andrew for details 416 795-3524, or email to andrew.stikuts@gmail.com. There will be no drawing session at Withrow Park that evening, as it is a statutory holiday.

2017 Annual General Meeting
We are thankful for Liz Wilde’s stewardship of the past couple of years, as our Annual General Meeting on Monday, April 17, 2017, received reports of yet another successful year, ensuring our continued, happy, on-going endeavors.  Liz has volunteered to take on the demanding tasks of Treasurer for the coming year as well as acting as key organizer for the annual art show.  Gail Gregory is stepping into the new and challenging role of VP in charge of Publicity.  We thank Clarice Thornton for continuing as Secretary, much appreciated.  Andrew Stikuts has agreed to serve as president. He can be reached at 416 795-3524 or at andrew.stikuts@gmail.com .   Thanks too to Dina Belaia for graphic design, and Benito del Monte Medina for web-page design.  On a sadder note, we mourn the passing of Irene Flint, a deeply cherished member, inspiration, and kind friend.

Journeys to Italy

Our long-time member and established artist Jenny Reid is also participating  in a summer-long show this year at the Joseph D. Carrier Gallery at the Columbus Centre, Lawrence Ave and Dufferin St.

 

Our Annual Art Show 2017

The Annual Art Show held the weekend of June 17th proved that art will always win over threatening thunderstorms.   Lots of fun, and plenty of sales as well.  Thrilled to be able to direct some proceeds to charitable endeavours, as usual.

 

Small Paintings for Small Spaces

Our Central Connection members Gail and Heidi are participating in this show of smaller works at The Gardener’s Cottage in the Beaches.  This charming event is put on by the Beaches Guild of Fine Arts.  It would make a perfect destination for an afternoon’s outing.

 

Art Square

Three Central Connection members (Jenny, Kay and Dina) are taking part in this group show right across from the AGO. Visit both galleries on the same TTC token!

 

 


2015 Annual General Meeting

After some concern in mid year, attendance picked up leaving us in a solid financial position. The change to a Feb 28 (or 29) year end has been successful. Responsibility for hiring/managing models will be rotated in four-month segments.

The meeting approved the following slate of Officers for the coming year:

President: Liz Wilde

Secretary: Clarisse Thornton
Treasurer: Gail Gregory
Immediate Past President: Rowena Moyes
