Happy Anniversary OSAC















OSAC was incorporated in June 1968 by a group of volunteers representing 8 arts councils in the province. They determined that to maintain and sponsor arts activities in their communities, a provincial organization should be formed to organize and coordinate programs.

The provincial organization would also act as a liaison between the community arts councils. The Saskatchewan Arts Board provided the funding necessary to establish OSAC.
 
In 1974, it was decided that if the arts councils were to maintain a provincial organization that it was imperative that an office with paid staff be established. Marguerite Gallaway was hired as the first Executive Director and the OSAC office opened in Estevan in April.

Today OSAC annually presents over 300 live community and school performances, attended by a total audience of approximately 75,000, and 80 visual arts exhibitions attended by over 40,000 people along with the annual Showcase Event. OSAC is now in more than 80 towns and cities; local arts councils and schools are keeping the arts alive. This is possible because of a dedicated network of volunteers committed to making culture an integral part of Saskatchewan community live, and vital funding from Saskatchewan Lotteries and Canadian Heritage.

OSAC was thrilled and honoured to accept the SK Arts Award – Saskatchewan Arts Award for Leadership, Organization in 2018.

Arts on the Move…Online is an online group of solo exhibitions, artist talks, and online video-based art tutorials.

The artists included in the online exhibitions represent a diversity of mediums including painting, photography, drawing, felting/fibre art, and sculpture..                                                              
The artists featured are Edie Marshall, Mohadese Movahed, Jamie Reynolds, Melanie Monique Rose, and Nic Wilson. Explore Arts on the Move HERE

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.
