City of St. Catharines 2018 Juried Exhibition
The 2018 Annual Juried Exhibition: Motion asks artists to look at the movement of travel in our city.

This exhibit will explore transportation in the everyday life of our community.

Movement through our city can be autonomous and self-directed, taking place on streets and trails, with feet or bicycles, often using designated routs to safely and affordably transition from point A to B.

It can be non-autonomous, using
pre-designed and designated transportation vehicles such as buses, trains etc., often creating a unique engagement. Motion introduces a variety of connections to a variety of things, beings and place.

Submissions of original artwork created within the past three (3) years will be considered from professional, student and amateur artists.

Submission Deadline: Monday June 25, 2018 at 4:30 p.m.

Socialize in the Gallery chatting with friends new and old, or break away to step into the Walker Room for 45 minutes to participate in the evening's chat.

The café is held on the 2nd Thursday of every month. You do not need ID to enter, the paint stains on your clothes or other unintended evidence of your artistic endeavours will be proof enough. The event is open to Pumphouse members and non-members alike.

The casual drop-in cafe allows local artists to meet and build a community, learn from one another and share ideas. The cafe will occasionally feature special speakers discussing topics of interest. Click here for Details
