Artists’ Artists – Open Call to Members

Closing Reception & Awards
Friday, September 6, 2019, 7pm
July 6 – September 8, 2019

Have you ever wondered what a non-juried, open-themed community exhibition would look like?

So did we and we’ve put out the call to our creative membership to submit an artwork to this community-driven group show.
Each submitting artist-member is invited to cast a ballot for a fellow artist exhibiting in Artists’ Artists.

The top trio will be invited back for a three person exhibition during SG’s landmark 50th anniversary in 2020!

Norma Wright Cotter – Welcome Back!

July 6 – September 8, 2019

in the Heritage Galleries

Opening reception: Saturday, July 6 @ 1PM


Norma Wright Cotter was born in 1891 in Smithville, Ontario. Although little is known of her primary education, she earned her secondary education at Ontario Ladies College (now Trafalgar Castle) in Whitby. At the Ontario Ladies College, she was taught by Whitby’s famed artist—Florence Helena McGillivray. She also took painting lessons from Charles MacDonald Manly and studied commercial art at the Art Students’ League in New York.

Norma Wright Cotter created many beautiful oil and watercolour landscapes from locations in southern Ontario and the US.

In 1923 Norma married Charles S. Cotter and they relocated to his plantation home in Jamaica. The artist continued to paint for many years, depicting the lush tropical scenes that surrounded her. The Jamaican landscapes she captured on paper and canvas are brightly sun-lit and textural, giving viewers a great sense of the place she spent the rest of her life.

Norma Wright Cotter’s artistic spirit returns to Whitby with this posthumous retrospective as a celebratory home-coming. This summer we’ll shine a new light on a talented historical artist with an important regional connection.
