Calls for Entry

Colour with a U

Colour with a U (Saqa Regional) • All Canadian members

Deadline: January 3, 2020 beside attached photo Colour with a U.jpg

In Canada, we spell colour with a "u". We also spell labour, favourite, honour, and neighbour with a "u". That "u" could stand for unique, unforgettable, universal, unity, understanding, utopia. It could include the unusual, unexpected, unbound, unabashed, unaccounted, uncanny. We care about the "u"; it makes us unique. We care about the "you"; it brings us together. What do the Canadian values of diversity and inclusion mean to you? How does your labour in your favourite medium honour your neighbourhood, your community? How do you colour yourself in to our Canadian culture? We are looking for artwork that expresses these ideas and that together will give an insightful perspective on our Canadian cultural identity. We encourage work of all types, including representational, abstract, and social commentary, in 2D and 3D (which can include work suspended from the ceiling, work on stretcher bars, framed work, wearable art, sculpture and installation work).

Additional venues will be announced as they are secured. Work must be available to travel from April 2020 through March 2023.

Vision 2020: the power of sight: the art of seeing
Calling all textile artists! Explore the power of sight and the art of seeing in cloth and submit your work for the next travelling textile art exhibition curated by Brenda Gael Smith. International entries welcome!
