This gallery showcases the winners of th first peer-juried competition of the Markham Group of Artists.

IN TRANSITION: passing or evolving from one form, stage, style or place to another. Our world, our country, our art group, our very lives – all are in transition. We invited all members to interpret this theme and show us their thoughts.

Held at the McKay Art Centre, 197 Main Street, Unionville

This show was juried by Denis Cliff. The show is entitled Breaking Boundaries because it is the first time the Markham Group of Artists has exhibited outside the Markham area and because we only accepted large works for the show. The show is at the Square One Gallery opposite the AGO.

This show was juried by Ernestine Tahdel. It represents our very best works.

Of the 97 pieces submitted for this show, 41 were selected by Juror Clarissa Lewis. Our tour begins with her comments on the show.

This year the Mayor's Art Showcase was held for the second year in a row. Artists resident in Markham were eligible to submit entries. It was juried by DD Gadjanski and we are please to say that 32 works by members of the Markham Group of Artists were accepted and we received 3 of 5 available Honourable Mentions. This gallery shows works created by 21 of our fine artists.

This juried show ran from May 26 to June 7, 2009. While the show is finished, you can still buy unsold work by contacting us using the E-mail Us menu option to the left.

This show was hosted by the Town of Markham and the Markham Arts Council and provided an opportunity for developers, decorators, realtors, businesses and residents to purchase original works of art. Paintings were provided by the Markham Group of Artists and the Heitzman Art Group. The show was held in the Great Hall in the Markham Municipal Offices.

As the mayor said, "Buy local art. The quality will amaze you."
