Current Opportunities

Kitsch 4 Canada | 2017 City of St. Catharines Annual Juried Exhibition

May 1 to Nov. 4, 2017

To many, kitsch is the opposite of art. With our proximity to the souvenir hotbed of Niagara Falls, and in celebration of Canada's sesquicentennial, the City of St. Catharines' Public Art Advisory Committee wants to celebrate the souvenir.

Niagara artists are invited to make kitsch that can be passed off as art. The kitsch can be real or imagined: all successful entries will cast an examining eye on the prevalence of the kitsch object in our society.

Submissions of original artwork created within the past three (3) years will be considered from professional, student and amateur artists. Artists will be paid an exhibition fee and their work will be considered for acquisition for the City of St. Catharines' Civic Art Collection.

Deadline: Monday, March 13, 2017 at 4:30 p.m.
