An Exhibition for the 2015 Canada Winter Games
From time to time, the FCA will post news with exciting opportunities for artists, here is one such opportunity. Please direct all questions regarding the exhibition, submissions, deadlines and guidelines for NORTH to Maeve Hanna the Assistant Curator for Two Rivers Gallery via firstname.lastname@example.org
Sport, competition, winter and the North will be in the spotlight in February, 2015, when the Canada Winter Games come to Prince George. Along with the excitement and thrill of competitive sport, the Canada Winter Games value greatly youth, community and culture; values that bridge the sporting world and that of the visual arts. The exhibition, NORTH, will provide the ideal platform for artists to delve into their understanding of the notion of “north” while engaging with these pillars of common interest—youth, sport, community and culture—during the occasion of the Canada Winter Games, an exciting opportunity and event for everyone in Prince George. We encourage visual artists working in any media to respond to this call with three to six artworks produced within the last three years.
