Winter Festival of Art Opened on Feb. 2nd with the theme `Shadow`

Algoma Art Society’s 70thAnniversary Celebration opened on March 1stat the Sault Ste. Marie Museum and remained on display until May 31st 

This 34 painting display included 20 by current members and 14 by past members, 9 or who are deceased. The oil painting entitled "Bridal Viel Falls in Agawa Canyon" was by Stuart MacDougall, the first president of the Algoma Art Society when it first formed in January 1948. This painting was donated to the Sault Ste. Marie Museum. The exhibition also contained a painting entitled "Mist on the Hill" by Dan Murray, a founding member and one of the first vice-presidents of the Algoma Art Society. The graphite sketch by Rita Tuckett was entitled "Backyards - Downtown Sault Ste. Marie" dated 1968.  Rita Tuckett was also an active Society member who went on to become a well-known television and movie actress starring in movies such as "Agnes of God" with Jane Fonda.  Rita passed away in 2005. Also included in the exhibition are paintings by past members who are no longer with us, such as Fran Pond, Janina Kryweinczyk, Katie Kopec, Doris Foster, Eddie Kosiba, and Sally Moorhouse.

 

A John Keast (1922-2011) painting was included as a Silent Auction with proceeds going to the AAS

John Keast taught and inspired many Algoma Art Society members. He knew Varley of the Group of Seven well and painted in the Group of Seven style. Art is spiritual, explained Keast, who leaves a bit of himself in every painting. Robert Nowosielski was the winner of the John Keast painting with the highest bid.

The Opening was well attended by members and local media such as SooToday.
