This show has been juried by Margaret Roseman, CSPWC, SCA, TWS -  artist, art critic, independent curator, art educator.

We look forward to offering Hamilton another spectacular art event, third year in a row, building on the Hamilton's art momentum and local slogan of "Art is the New Steel". Executive Members, Debra Lengyell, Gail Ivanco, Jan Banks, Lakshman Ragde, Louise Scott-Bushell, Linda Trowell, and Regional Rep Eva Ivanov are committed to making this year's Members' Show spectacular, and enjoyable to the public for an three months.

The formation of the Central Ontario Art Association (COAA) has been a three-tier development since 1953, where three organized art groups, then five in the counties of Dufferin, Peel, Wellington, Waterloo and Halton regions came together, and were called Five Counties Art Association. With further support by the Ontario Department Education, and the Ontario Arts Council, the Association grew and flourished, changing its name in 1964 to Central Ontario Art Association, with current membership of 178.

After 50 years, and still an independent, non-profit organization, we continue to nurture fellowship in the visual arts spanning the globe. We embrace the new technologies in art, and the traditional beauty of visual arts to help our membership flourish and grow with annual learning events, and workshops.
