Biennial Elected Members Exhibition

Every other year, the Colour and Form Society presents their biennial Elected Members Exhibition. In 2018, it was held at the Assembly Hall from July 5 to August 16.

The jurors were Charles Choi and Zora Buchanan:

Zora Buchanan BFA, OSA, SCA has been painting for over 40 years. She is a past president of the Society of Canadian Artists, and a member of the Ontario Society of Artists. She was one of the first woman artists to be admitted to the Arts and Letters Club of Toronto in 1985. She chaired the Art Committee twice and instigated the NEXT! Ontario wide Art Competition.

Charles Choi SCA was born in Shanghai, China and immigrated to Canada in 1995. He learnt painting at the age of 4, with the focus on western master paintings and their creation. In recent years, his focus has been on ‘Concrete Expression’ – the combination of fundamental painting skills, personal touch and a contemporary approach. He is a multi-award winning artist both in Canada and China. Awards include; the Toronto Arts & Letters Club NEXT2 “Gold Award” (2017), and the Society of Canadian Artists Elected Members’ Annual Art Show “Best of the Show” (2013). His work is represented in private and public collections across Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, Japan and China. Choi says it is his intention to truly express his subject ‘as it is’ together with his own inner feeling. His colours are sweet and gentle, with rich and free brushstrokes which represent the moment in which he paints.
