The Grey Highlands Artists' Circle, GHAC, was formed in March 2008. We are a group of five rural women from Ontario whose members are, Carol Binns-Wood, Fran Bouwman, Melanie Earle,Robin Grebski, and Shauna Earle. Functioning like a gallery we have a curatorial policy that focuses on issues and ideas that interest us as artists. By presenting exhibitions in different communities and settings we expose that particular area to dynamic, fresh and challenging artists, shows, and events, while at the same time raising consciousness and awareness about the artistic process. By developing ideas in an equal, non-hierarchical setting each of us are allowed a fair opportunity to express opinions and open discussion. We are also focused on giving opportunities to emerging and established artists to show their work under an 'idea umbrella', and occasionally we invite a guest curator to collaborate on our projects.
