The City of St. Catharines engages artists in temporary exhibits and commissions of public art, and acquires art selected from our Annual Juried Exhibit. Calls to Artists and Requests for Expressions of Interest are released on an ad hoc basis. These opportunities and their guidelines will be listed here when available.
Sign-up and receive email releases when calls to artists are available.
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.
