Pick up the paintbrush: deadline to enter Art Exposed Regional Exhibition is Tuesday, Feb. 14

TNRD residents encouraged to enter Kamloops Arts Council’s 7th annual Art Exposed Regional Exhibition

Thompson Nicola Regional District residents practising visual art of any kind, and at any level, are encouraged to enter the Kamloops Arts Council’s 7th annual Art Exposed Regional Exhibition.

The exhibit will run March 3-11 at the Old Courthouse Cultural Centre in Kamloops.

In this open, non-curated art show, all entered works (2D and 3D) will be displayed.

New this year is a special category for youth ages 8-14.

Due to space restrictions, maximum size of artwork is 12 square feet. Though the entry deadline is Feb. 14, artwork need not be ready until the drop-off dates of Feb. 24 and 25.

“We get a number of entries from established artists each year,” says Kamloops Arts Council executive director Kathy Sinclair. “We welcome ‘closet artists,’ too — Art Exposed can be a great and supportive opportunity to share your artwork with the public for the very first time.”

Cash prizes and honourable mentions will be awarded.

This year’s jurors are artists Wendy Weseen (Kamloops), Christine Beaton (Kamloops), and Trish Armstrong-Gibson (Logan Lake). Entrants may book a feedback session with a juror.
