OAA Juried Art Exhibition Opening Reception

Description: For almost 50 years, the Annual Juried Art Exhibition at the Robert McLaughlin Gallery has seen many fine art pieces by many talented local artists from Oshawa & all over Ontario. The main area of the gallery was filled with countless pieces of artwork, each with their own inspirations, styles & executions. The 2016 (48th) Annual Juried Art Exhibition had members of the Ontario Art Association as co-jurors to the competition. Having a wide variety of eyes to see the pieces helps tremendously as art is, and always has been, very objective. In total 10 awards were given out in various categories, as well as the Mayor's personal choice of favourite piece. For anyone wishing to get their pieces in for next year's competition, the sooner the better, as April 6th 2017 is the opening night!
