Portrait Society of Canada




Does anyone here, or someone you know, belong to the Portrait Society of Canada? I would like to hear some of your experiences, good or bad, that arose from becoming a member with an artist's group. If you are aware of any notable societies that cater to serious artists and that are found within the Toronto or Mississauga area, please let me know. I would really like to meet 'face to face' with other artists that are on the same 'wave length' as myself, to discuss various issues and to get some hands on advice. This website is great, but, just like painting, there is no substitute for live interaction. Unfortunately, there seems to be a lack of decent workshops or little advertising for these interactions within my area.

Thanks,
David

I believe that Igor Babailov and Juan Martinez are members.

Josef, I am not in an hurry to join. I sent them an email over a week ago and have not heard from them. Just like most artist's groups, I have heard good and bad things. At this point, I am not sold on any benefit I might receive from membership with this particular society. I want to find an environment that mirrors this website (at least in part) with the opportunity for artists to visit each other's studio's or attend workshops and seminars. As I mentioned earlier, I am having a hard time finding a really good workshop or seminar within a 2 hour drive from my home. Time and financial constraints prevent me from attending any of the workshops found in the US. I was hoping that this society would have catered to my specific needs, but have not heard any compelling argument to convince me of it's merits. I'll keep my ears open. Josef, do you find yourself in the same situation in Montreal?

David, Yes, I feel the same way. Actually even worse because I am further away from Toronto. At least you could go to the Society's arts festival easier. I am hesistant to join too because of the same reason. I joined ASOPA last year and I have not heard from them since the initial newsletter. They went under? Anyways, I will keep you posted if anything comes up.
