Waterside Art Group - Art Exhibition and Sale: "Renewal". Friday 24th - Sunday 26th May

10:00 AM — 05:00 PM

The 10th annual art exhibit and show from Waterside Art Group, aptly named Renewal, opens to the public on Friday 24th May at Summer & Grace Gallery, Lakeshore & Allan St. in Oakville.


The Waterside artists, some of whom have painted together for over 15 years, meet each week to paint at the Oakville Galleries Studio in Gairloch Gardens. This group of 20 have been hosting their annual exhibit & sale each spring at Gairloch and wanted a change in 2024. “The Summer & Grace Gallery and event space is a wonderful venue for us and the Waterside Art Group is happy to have their professional assistance in hosting our show” agree Priti Girgla and Barb Clausi, long-term members and former show managers.


“Our 2023/24 season has been rejuvenated with new classes, private instructors and some new members. Choosing the theme of Renewal for this year’s show was straightforward - we're excited to share new paintings. Taking this step to work with a trusted professional gallery in the heart of our community allows us to create a new experience for our collectors and allows the opportunity for a preview reception, which we know they'll appreciate. We are also thrilled to continue our support of The Lighthouse for Grieving Children and 15% of all sales will be donated to them.” added Kim Gordon, Chair of the 2024 RENEWAL Show and Sale.

Visit us at  https://watersideartgroup.alsip.ca/


Please take some time out to visit the gallery during opening hours: Friday and Saturday, 10am until 5pm and Sunday, noon until 5pm, over 100 original paintings available to purchase.

38th Annual Community Living Oakville Golf Tournament

07:30 AM — 08:00 PM

This year marks the 38th Annual Community Living Oakville Golf Tournament which is both our longest running and largest fundraising event.

While our organization is ministry funded, the support received only covers basic everyday essentials – like food, shelter, utilities, transportation and staff. And like most government funded service providers; we often need to do more with less. Some of the people we support require small amounts of assistance, while many others (and their families) rely on us for every facet of their life. We support the most vulnerable members of our community, many of whom experience poverty, isolation, and discrimination.

Supports and services are held in partnership with community facilities and local businesses in Oakville, in diverse environments. Being a part of the intricate fabric of our community, has improved the health and well being of the people we support. By building community partnerships, we have witnessed increased community awareness and inclusion – contributing to an inclusive community. 

Funds raised from this year’s tournament will provide people with developmental disabilities opportunities to improve their health and well-being, build on life skills and foster relationships with community members. Through skill development, people supported will have the tools to become involved in their community, gain independence and have a sense of belonging. 

Please consider contributing to the success of this year’s golf tournament by sponsoring, playing and/or donating an item for our auction or prize table.
