Our membership is made up of people interested in art. We meet every Wednesday morning in NDG, Montreal. These mornings are considered studio time for individual work such as painting, drawing,watercolour, etc. Periodically, workshops are given by established artists who share their expertise. An art exhibit is held in spring.
THE WOMEN’S ART STUDIO OF MONTREAL
L’ATELIER D’ART DES FEMMES DE MONTREAL
History and Function
The Women’s Art Studio of Montreal was created in 1998 by a group of
artists, who were active members of the Women’s Art Society of Montreal,
to fill a need for more studio space not offered by the Women’s Art
Society. It was considered that a group environment would provide
opportunities for an exchange of ideas and techniques with their peers.
With this in mind, the Women’s Art Studio of Montreal was launched.
It was determined that the function of the Studio is to meet on a weekly basis, throughout the year. The venue should be
suitably large while keeping the membership fees affordable.
During the year, and depending on availability, several professional artists are invited to conduct workshops on
various aspects of art. Critiques are held regularly on completed or works in progress.
Meetings and luncheons are organized once or twice a year.
An annual exhibition and sale of works is held in the spring. A professional artist is invited to select 1st, 2ndand 3rd place prize winners as well as 3 Honorable Mention awards. Modest cash prizes are awarded to the first 3 prize winners.
Currently meetings are held in a church hall in Notre Dame de Grace (N.D.G).
Note: Many of our members also enjoy membership in the Women’s Art
Society of Montreal (l’Association culturelle des femmes de Montréal).
