Last call for entry – artists & groups encouraged to enter Oh Canada! Art Exhibition

Deadline May 28 for June 29-July 1 show at Heritage House

Kamloops, BC — Area painters, sculptors, photographers and other artists are encouraged to enter the Kamloops Arts Council (KAC)’s 2016 Oh Canada! Art Exhibition. The registration deadline is Saturday, May 28, 2016 at 4pm.

Individual artists and arts groups may register online, by mail, or at the KAC office (7 Seymour Street West, Old Courthouse).

The KAC’s 2nd annual Oh Canada! show is an indoor visual arts exhibit that celebrates our country. Artwork may relate to the theme in a way that is as subtle or literal as the artist wishes. The work must be accompanied by a short statement that explains how the artwork fits the theme.

“This is an excellent chance for artists to tap into the Canada Day crowds,” says KAC Executive Director Kathy Sinclair. “Not every artist is inclined to have a booth at Art in the Park. This is a chance for other artists, including those just starting out, to get involved in the excitement.”

A maximum of 100 pieces will be accepted for this exhibition, so apply early.

Oh Canada! will open June 29, culminating at Art in the Park and City of Kamloops Canada Day celebrations at Riverside Park, with 30,000 people in attendance.
