Society of Canadian Artists – Elected Membership
Looking back on 2016, it has been a monumental year for me as an artist. One piece of news that I am excited to share is that I have been recently honoured as an Elected Member of the Society of Canadian Artists.
To become an elected member of the SCA one must be reviewed by a jury of esteemed artists, who judge the work for skill, originality, consistency, and impact among others. Elected members enjoy a number of benefits associated with being a part of this community. These include participation in exclusive exhibits, access to professional and artistic resources, invitation to society events and awards, as well as permission to punctuate your name with “SCA.”
I was given this honour in a ceremony at the Toronto Arts and Letters Club on the 25th of November, 2016 which I sadly couldn’t attend in person but was able to connect online to the gala event. You can find a summary of my contributions to the Canadian visual arts community on the Society of Canadian Artists website under Elected Members, or by following this link.
The SCA has existed in Canada since 1957, supporting the artistic community across all visual media by hosting exhibitions and workshops, awarding distinguished work, and promoting excellence and originality in the Canadian visual arts community. Their goal is to foster the visibility and the stature of the visual arts in Canada, which they achieve through recognizing excellence in traditional visual media, and encouraging originality and exploration in emerging, contemporary visual media.

I would like to extend my appreciation to the society for including me as a member of the group.
