About

Sweet Art Group of Artists (SAGA), a group of artists, all attending Open Studio coaching sessions by Artist Marissa Sweet SCA.  They meet weekly to paint on their preferred medium and on their own projects and connect for encouragement and inspiration.

The group uses a range of materials, methods and motivations in order to create. They use acrylics, oils, and other drawing materials. Several of them try to capture the beauties of nature in both landscapes and florals, inspiring the viewer to value and conserve the earth.   A few members enjoy creating landscapes from past travel experiences. Some use human subject matter to paint about interactions, relationships and vibrancy of life.  Others sometimes work in abstracts.

This is the 3rd Group show for SAGA and believe that completing a body of work for the Kent Farndale Gallery will stretch their abilities, and connect with the public through their art.  For this show they have chosen the theme, “Memories,” and will create art based on the concept of introspection and memories of the past, travel, meaningful objects and other meanings of the theme word.

Join SAGA from 2 to 4 PM for their gallery opening on September 24th, and get the chance to meet all the artists involved!

This event is a part of the Ontario Culture Days Regional Hub Program.

Kent Farndale Gallery

The Kent Farndale Gallery focuses on exhibiting the works of emerging and established artists and craftspeople in many media. Throughout the years, it has showcased the talents of local and international artists. A popular destination for Durham region residents, the Gallery attracts over 26,000 visitors per year. Each show lasts four weeks with an opening reception usually taking place the first day of the exhibition. The Gallery is located inside the Scugog Memorial Public Library and opened in May 1982 at the time of the official opening of the old library.

The Gallery is named in honour of Kent Farndale who served as volunteer Director and curator of the exhibitions for ten years. The Board of Directors also established an Art Bursary in her name which is awarded annually to a Scugog resident.

The Kent Farndale Gallery is operated by a volunteer committee and provides a professional environment for new and emerging artists to display their works and an opportunity for the community to view fine art and craft and to meet the artists.
