OSAC History Book and Award

In 2018 Dr. Lynn Gidluck was commissioned to write the early history of OSAC – from 1968 when OSAC began and an office opened in Estevan to 1987 when the office moved to Regina. Extensively using the OSAC archives Dr. Gidluck was able to tell the story of how OSAC started with eight volunteer Arts Councils and grew to over 60 Arts Councils under the guidance of the first OSAC Executive Director, Marguerite Gallaway.

From the early years to tours with Maureen Forrester and Jon Vickers, this is a truly remarkable story of the Saskatchewan Volunteer spirit and  hard work to make a grand idea succeed. The book is available for $20 and can be ordered by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.

The OSAC Artist Listing is a resource set up to connect visual artists and the general public through our members. The artists’ profile includes images, general artist info, links to social media, contact information, workshop info, categories of medium, and a C.V. Building a profile is completely FREE for the artists, as well as for anyone browsing the listing. CHECK OUT THE ARTIST LISTING HERE

This resource can connect artists with parents looking for online art lessons for their children, people hoping to purchase art and support a Saskatchewan artist, teachers looking for online art lesson content, and everything in between. OSAC will not be handling any exchange of services or products; the Listing is more of an “artist classifieds”. Please follow the link for the TUTORIAL LINK on how to set up your Artist profile.
