We are visual artists who have come together, to share our art... to exhibit together... and to enjoy the camaraderie of being with other artists. When we are not in SOVA exhibits, we are involved in exhibitions with other groups, such as the Colour and Form Society, the Ontario Society of Artists,The Society of Canadian Artists, Headwaters Arts, McMichael Art Gallery and more. Some members have been involved in shows across Canada, the United States, Australia and Turkey. All of us have shown our work in numerous galleries individually and as a group. Our goal, is to present our artwork to the public, where, hopefully, it will be appreciated and enjoyed

Our members include:

Robert Chisholm is noted for his impressionistic , intuitive style that with a combination of natural colours, and freedom of brush strokes, allows the painting to evolve.

Lynden Cowan is a self-taught artist, drawn to the Canadian landscape and is noted for her ability to make the viewer feel that they are part of the scene. Her preferred medium is oil on canvas, but the artist also enjoys working with a variety of other materials, such as painting on GPS and egg tempura.

Helen Duplassie utilizes several media in her work, including watercolour, oils, acrylics and dye on silk. Loving the soft and delicate intermingling of watercolours, she is primarily a landscape artist but also enjoys painting flowers, people and still life.

Paulette Murphy likes the relationship between the old and the new and the combining of different materials.Over the years she has experimented with a variety of media but mostly likes to mix things up.

Charlene Nickels has enjoyed experimenting with various media, including oils, acrylics, sculpting, pottery, woodworking and jewelry making. She is primarily a realist and watercolours has become her passion.

Margaret Pardy Her creative process starts with her original photographs of nature, and then she takes the best images to work up her compositions for her unique scratchboard creations.

Lynne Schumacher, in addition to landscape painting has expanded her horizons to portray the rich diversity of our community in the people and their colourful cultural contribution to the Canadian mosaic.

Steve Wilson's work is exhibited and collected world wide, challenging your perception of our world sometimes in a humorous way, whether figure work, landscape or city scape his play of light and dark creates a moment in time.

Janice Ykema's acrylic work is expressionistic and painterly, filled with movement, colour and personality. She delights in finding stories within common subjects and often incorporates humour into her pieces.
