Call for Submissions | Student & Recently Graduated Artists

Date: Jan 29, 2019

Deadline: Apr 1, 2019 - 4:00 pm

Art Gallery of Swift Current invites young artists to submit artworks for the upcoming exhibition, Cultural Olympiad.

To complement the 2019 Western Canada Summer Games in Swift Current, Saskatchewan, the West Wing Gallery will host an exhibition of artwork by young artists including university fine arts students and recently graduated young professionals. Just as the Games are an expression of sporting achievement and development for young athletes, Cultural Olympiad will reveal achievements and development of young artists. This approach echoes the idea and ideals of the Culture Olympiad, held during past the Olympics. Preference to sports related materials and imagery, not mandatory. All genres and mediums accepted!

An honorarium will be paid to the selected artists.

If you wish to participate, email curator Heather Benning by April 1, 2019.
