27th Annual Juried Exhibition
December 14, 2019 to January 19, 2020
Opening Reception & Awards Ceremony: Wednesday, December 18 at 7pm
This ever-popular, year-end show inspires our creative membership to create a submission based on a given theme. “Encounters” is an open-ended and versatile theme that’s sure to ignite diverse, thoughtful responses. Encounters happen every day. They usually hold the unexpected. It could be a casual meeting or a chance discovery of a good book.
This year’s jurors, Fynn Leitch (Curator, Art Gallery of Peterborough), Leila Timmins (Curator & Manager, Exhibitions & Collections, The Robert McLaughlin Gallery) and Greg Murphy (Executive Dean, School of Media Art & Design, Durham College) had the challenging task of selecting from a large number of works. Their challenge was to select works that make a strong statement in connection to this year’s theme and work together in a relevant, cohesive way.
We are pleased to announce the 27th edition exhibiting artists!
