Island Art Show

September 11 to 24, 2022

In this popular exhibit Grand Manan artists, along with seasonal and visiting artists, come together to display their creative talents. Painting, photography, fibre arts, sculpture, woodcarving and mixed-media pieces are displayed together in one memorable show, and it’s all for sale. The images at the left illustrate work by the 2021 recipients of the Island Art Show Visitor’s Choice Awards.

Come and enjoy art created by our friends, neighbours, and visitors, and take advantage of this op-portunity to take home some great art at a very reasonable price.

And consider this your invitation to participate in our 2022 Island Show. We will be pleased to welcome back our regular artists who faithfully participate in this event, and we are always looking for new artists of all ages. Children, teens and adults are all encouraged to participate. Work must be ready to hang (preferably with a wire, not frame clips), and a label with the artist’s name, medium and title of the piece must be attached to the back of the artwork.

Artists may submit up to four pieces, and the Entry Fee is $10 per piece. The Gallery will charge a 25% commission on all sales. An image of the artwork may be used for publicity purposes to promote the Island Art Show. The Gallery respects community standards and reserves the right not to hang any work that is deemed inappropriate.

We will take normal precautions to care for all submitted artwork, but the Gallery will assume no risk for loss or damage to any artwork. It is the sole responsibility of the artist to insure each work against risk in whatever amount is considered necessary.

Gallery visitors will vote for their favourite pieces, and People’s Choice Awards of $100, $150 and $200 will be again be given for the three most popular works in the show.
