Arts on the Credit Show February Newsletter


Plans are rolling along to present the best ever Arts on the Credit. We have many new artists to the show, some marvelous sculptors, new ceramists and new fine artists and photographers.
We have formed a great new partnership with Sheridan College and subsequently will be sponsoring one of their recent graduates from the visual arts department, Courtney Downman, a glass artist.
Learn more about Courtney at the link above.

We are working on a brand new website that should be ready in the next couple of months, so keep checking. All the artists participating in 2017 are now posted. Click on their image to discover their bios and websites. There also is a brand new slide show on our home page.

Our 2017 show is SOLD OUT. Now for all the last minute details.

We are looking for some volunteers that love art and enjoy our annual show. We need some volunteer helpers to................
  • to help distribute our postcards
  • to help welcome visitors to the show & take tickets at our front desk
  • to help the artists move in & out of the show
  • to write blog posts & press releases
Contact me if you would like to become more engaged with the arts. We would love to have you join Arts on the Credit.

Door Prize for 2017
-all one has to do is complete a ballot to enter for a chance to win the door prize, draw at the close of the show on Sunday, April 9th
-original painting by Dave Froude valued at $450.
-been in the show for at least last 4 years (this is year 6 for Arts on the Credit)
Below is the bio he sent in.
Most of his life Dave Froude has drawn objects, mostly as a hobby. In his late 20s, Dave attended Sheridan College, where he focused on Technical Illustration. This is where he learned the finer points of drawing and painting.
After college, Dave continued to draw from life, but worked mostly with digital artwork and didn’t pick up a brush until 12 years later.
In late 2008, something switched on and Dave needed to paint; the passion was back. Since then, he has painted almost everyday. His work continues improve and he is growing as an artist. Dave’s work has evolved since then as he learns more about what it means to produce a successful painting. Now, his work is based on working with shapes, values, colour relationships and composition, and although Dave’s work is still representational, the objects he paints are secondary and the relationships and form are his focus.
In Dave’s short time as a painter he has been juried into 2 art groups, Mississauga Art Society and the Colour and Form Society and been juried into many group shows over the past few years. Dave looks forward to what the future holds as his work continues to evolve as an artist.
