41st Annual Winter Festival Juried Art Show & Sale


February 10th – March 25th, 2017

CALL FOR ENTRY

About the Exhibition
The Winter Festival Art Show & Sale is the premier art event of northern Saskatchewan. In this exhibition, hundreds of artworks by emerging and professional artists from across the province are shown at the Mann Art Gallery. A guest juror curates the show and designates awards sponsored by local organizations. Now entering its 41st year, the exhibition reflects an incredible level of artistic production in our community.

The Process
All Saskatchewan artists and artisans who are members of the Mann Art Gallery are invited to participate in this exhibition. (See Eligibility and Entry Instructions for details.) The artwork is dropped off at the Gallery in late January. Over the course of the subsequent two weeks, artworks are curated into our three gallery spaces by an independent guest curator. Past curators include Sandra Fraser (Mendel Art Gallery), Marsha Kennedy (University of Regina) and Grant McConnell (University of Saskatchewan). Everyone who enters is guaranteed inclusion, so long as the artworks follow the size guidelines and are outfitted with the correct hanging hardware. During the Gala Reception, the exhibition is unveiled for the first time and prizes are awarded.  The day after the reception, the guest curator provides a detailed walk-through tour to discuss their curating process, award decisions, and will provide critiques if requested.
