2014/2 Exhibition – Opened May 5, 2014.

George Mocanu

Since he could consciously remember himself, George was always creating some sort of art, whether by simply drawing with a pencil or using ink on paper, playing with clay or even putting together bits and parts of electronics resulting in a shape of his vision. When George creates, a ritualistic meditation is happening: with his eyes open, he stares into the unseen dimension of nothingness and, like magic, a soft dark light shows him the alphabet of his next creation. The brush, the chisel and the diamond tip, all, are only one thing: his soul’s extension.

Anne Labelle-Johnson

In her watercolour paintings, Anne emulates the delicacy and gracefulness of the flowers she paints and her brush strokes give vitality to lush gardens and fresh plants. Creatively, Anne brings together two elements of nature which are close to her heart. Her paintings of flowers are colourful and alive, and represent all the joy, hope and promise in life. Her gorgeous flower studies, garden scenes, and landscapes show her mastery of the medium.

The Oshawa Camera Club

The Oshawa Camera Club is proud to be celebrating it’s 75th anniversary, throughout it’s 2013 - 2014 season. Founded in 1938 as the General Motors Camera Club, it is one of the oldest camera clubs in Canada.

The Club has been exhibiting photos since 1940 and, over the years, exhibits progressed from black and white to colour to colour slides.

The Oshawa Camera Club has grown tremendously over the years, as has the photographic excellence of its members.

WWI Commemorative Project: Oshawa Faithful and Ready

The year 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War, a war that greatly impacted communities across Canada. When the Great War broke out in Europe Oshawa was a town of approximately 8 100 people. From the beginning of the war, until its conclusion, the town secured a total enlistment of 1500 men. Many of these soldiers participated in some of the great battles of the war, St. Julian, Vimy Ridge, Valenciens, etc. The Oshawa Community Museum has partnered with a range of organizations in the City of Oshawa, including members from the Ontario Regiment Museum, The Robert McLaughlin Gallery, Oshawa Public Libraries, Heritage Oshawa, City of Oshawa and Trent University (Oshawa) have all come together to deliver an ambitious program to mark the centenary years of the First World War. This display was created to commemorate Oshawa’s role during World War I on the frontlines, as well as on the home front.
