Sculptor, Elizabeth Fraser Williamson lived, taught and created as a resident artist at the Guild.
Today the Williamson family hosts a party to mark the re-installation of a memorial plaque near the old log cabin where the artist had a studio and worked for many years.
Guests are invited to meet outside Guild Park's new Clark Centre for the Arts at 11:00 am to celebrate this life and art of Elizabeth Fraser Williamson.
In 1970 Spencer Clark invited Williamson to become an artist-in-residence at the Guild Inn. Williamson came to the Guild Inn with a conviction that her mission was to make sculpture appreciation accessible to the public.
She taught extensively at her studio and also gave classes at Scarborough’s Cedar Ridge Creative Centre. Guests at the Guild Inn would stop by her cottage gallery where she lived. She would invite them to look around, feel the sculptures, and hear the story that was within each piece.
In 1995, she was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the former city of Scarborough.
