Art Gallery of Swift Current invites you to submit artworks for the upcoming exhibition, Cultural Olympiad.
In compliment to the 2019 Western Canada Summer Games in Swift Current, West Wing Gallery will host an exhibition of artwork by young artists including university fine arts students and recently graduated young professionals. Just as the Games are an expression of sporting achievement and development for young athletes, the Cultural Olympiad exhibition will reveal achievements and development of young artists. This approach echoes the idea and ideals of the Culture Olympiad, held during past the Olympics.
An honorarium will be paid to the selected artists.
All genres and mediums accepted!
Preference to sports related materials and imagery, not mandatory
