MERA Art Circle

The MERA Art Circle is open to all!

Perhaps you are a visual artist looking for a new environment to stimulate you creativity. Or perhaps you would like to get back into creating art again now that you have more time. Or perhaps you just want to try something new and creative, no matter your level of experience in the visual arts.

Then MERA's Art Circle is for you! 

All that you require is an interest in being creative and a MERA membership.

The Art Circle meets every Friday of each month unless otherwise indicated due to holidays, with a complete break in July and August.  All sessions start at 9:00 am and end at noon.


Be prepared to learn from and be inspired by what others in the group are working on.  Informal presentations or technical instructions to the group will occur when a member feels they have something to offer.  However, there will be plenty of time to work on your own piece and trade ideas and techniques with others in a casual way.

After only 6 years in existence, the group has hosted five art shows at MERA displaying a delightful variety of works.  The pieces at each successive show has demonstrated a marked improvement, and have sold very well. Each sale gives 20% of the purchase price to MERA to help keep the doors open.  As well, some members have held individual art shows during the year in Dean Hall.

This March, 2020, the Art Circle is mounting a fund-raiser for MERA, called Cruise the ReUse, wherein we will be incorporating articles found at the McDonald’s Corners reuse centre in our art for sale. This will include repurposed furniture, clothing, original art in old frames, etc. The vernissage time and possible auction for these items to be announced.

Come and join us, whether you are a beginner or more experienced.  Each attendee will be required to bring their own paints, brushes and materials. Be sure to bring your laughter and sense of play.
