    Founded in 1872, the Ontario Society of Artists is Canada’s longest continuing art society.

    Professional Artists

    We are 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. Our membership roster includes many of Canada’s best-known painters, sculptors, printmakers and photographers. We currently have an active membership of over two hundred artists, working in a wide range of media and from diverse backgrounds and cultures.

    Non-profit Organization

    We are a non-profit, charitable organization, which is administered by a volunteer executive council of artists.

    Exhibitions and Membership

    Each year we present exhibitions of works by members, a juried art exhibition open to all artists working in two and three dimensional media, as well as a juried exhibition specifically for emerging artists. We encourage emerging artists, established artists and artists from diverse backgrounds to apply to our organization for membership.

    Historic Arts and Letters Club of Toronto

    The Ontario Society of Artists has a home and meeting place at the historic Arts and Letters Club of Toronto at St. George’s Hall, located at 14 Elm Street in downtown Toronto. The Hall is a building with a lively history of remarkable colour and vivacity and is designated a building of National Historic Significance by the Government of Canada. This is a permanent space that provides an excellent opportunity for individual members to meet and interact, and enjoy the companionship of other artist members.
