Message from the Co-ordinator of the Open Art Studio Group

Whether dealing with the stresses of COVID isolation or simply looking for something relaxing and interesting to do, creating arts or crafts is a wonderful escape.  More than just a hobby, they can enhance your imagination, exercise the mind, improve dexterity, and enrich the soul.  We have no shortage of artists in the club and presently have three interest groups dedicated to arts or crafts activities.  Margaret Adamson, the coordinator of the Art - PROBUS Open Studio interest group, will periodically be providing some contributions in this section of the website along with some of her fellow interest group members.  And you’ll have the opportunity to see just how talented this group of artists are as photos of some of their works are published here.

PROBUS Members

Please send in your photos and a brief description of your work to webmaster.portperryprobus@gmail.com

We would love to show it off to the world!

 Featured Artist

Margaret Adamson

have always found art to be a special interest that lead me into pursuing art not only as a pastime, but also as an integral part of my career in education.

Growing up on the Saskatchewan prairies during the 50’s and 60’s didn’t offer me any opportunity to formally study art, so it wasn’t until I took a couple of art courses at the University of Calgary that I was able to incorporate art into my life as a teacher and years later as an art consultant for other teachers.
Over many years I have dabbled in the various media of clay, watercolour, acrylic and oil paints.
Once I retired and while living in Richmond Hill, I went to the Newmarket School of Art, where there was a mix of an open studio and incidental teachings lead by an artist, Martin Pryce. I think it was the energy of others that enriched and expanded my enjoyment of painting. My favourite medium today still remains oil paints - vibrant and smooth to work with.
Today as I look back I recall the pleasure I saw children get out of art and as I look to the future I can’t see being without a place to wile away hours over a painting. It isn’t always easy, nor is every painting a “success”, but there is self-satisfaction and peace while working on a painting.
There is also always a wish you could learn more, do something new and share art with others.
