CALL FOR ARTISTS/SUBMISSIONS

ANNUAL JURIED EXHIBITION - KITSCH 4 CANADA!
Niagara artists are invited to make kitsch that can be passed off as art for the 2017 Annual Juried Exhibition - Kitsch 4 Canada! To many, kitsch is the opposite of art. Or is it? The City's Public Art Advisory Committee wants to celebrate the souvenir. Submissions of original artwork created within the past three (3) years will be considered from professional, student and amateur artists.
DEADLINE: MARCH 13, 2017
