Artful Draw donated by Shirley Heard
Garden of White
18" x 24"
Shirley has lived in the Whitby / Oshawa area all her life. At a very young age she used to watch her father paint but never really became serious about painting until her children were older and she had more time
She first joined the Oshawa Art Association and started taking workshops in watercolour. She has since moved on to take many workshops in mixed media where she learned to enjoy experimental painting techniques. Shirley finds it relaxing to just let the painting evolve as she goes along. To her painting is therapy and she has made many wonderful friends through her art.
Shirley belongs to several art groups and has taken part in numerous group exhibitions and has been accepted into many juried shows where she has won numerous awards.
Her paintings are in private and corporate collections in Canada, USA. And Europe.

Thanks to our sponsor OPG for hosting this event.
We are holding our 2017 annual special evening on Wednesday, April 5th at the same great venue. Ontario Power Generation has once again graciously offered their Information Centre at 1675 Montgomery Park Road, Pickering and you can expect the same excellent artwork, entertainment, information, fun and refreshments that we have become (dare I say it) famous for ~ and this year ~ I think it will be even better!
The evening is really all about our multi~talented members. We love to showcase our visual and performing artists ~ and we are also going to raise a little money for the Council by holding another eclectic silent auction and raffling off an exciting piece of artwork donated by artist Shirley Heard. We hope to be able to accept payments with Visa and MasterCard as well as cash and cheques!
