150 Reasons to Be Canadian– Call to Artists
In 2017, Canada will celebrate the 150th anniversary of its confederation. 2017 will be a special year for all Canadians as the festivities will spread across Canada, from ocean to ocean. Conseil des arts Prescott Russell Arts Council (CAPRAC), in partnership with the Prescott and Russel Economic Development and Tourism (PRETD) and Tourism Prescott Russell (TPRT), are very happy to be taking part in this great Canadian adventure, and as such, would like to invite all artists of the Prescott and Russell region to participate in a major project created for this once-ina-lifetime celebration.
The project, whose chosen theme is “150 Reasons to Be Canadian,” invites all artists, artisans, and creators of all types of the Prescott and Russell, Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry as well as Ottawa and its suburbs to take part in a region-wide exhibition which will celebrate Canada’s 150th Confederation. This idea was initiated by artist Rita Iriarte, who will be presenting a monumental piece on this theme during this event and the exhibition.
You are invited to submit a unique and original piece of art relating to the theme of « 150 Reasons to Be Canadian ». Your piece will be exhibited in October 2017 during a one-day, grand group exhibition and opening which will include all 150 artworks submitted by artists of the region. After the grand opening event, the exhibition will be divided and the pieces will be exhibited in different cultural centres in Prescott and Russell.
