Sixth Annual Square Foot Art Show and Sale

AUGUST 9 to 21, 2020

This popular show is a major fund raiser for the Gallery, and the objective is to pack as much punch as possible into one square foot of space. The images above illustrate how three of our 2019 artists rose to this challenge. We invite you to follow their lead and be part of our 2020 show. We will welcome a variety of artwork — paintings, drawings, photographs, fiber art, ceramics, wood, and mixed media pieces, and there is just one stipulation. A square foot measures 12 inches by 12 inches, and the outside dimensions of your piece (including any frame) must measure 12 inches by 12 inches.

This event is a major fund raiser for the gallery. Up to four pieces may be submitted, and all the artwork will be priced at $200. There will be an entry fee of $10 per piece, and a modest 25% commission on sales. Gallery visitors will be encouraged to vote for their favourite pieces, and People’s Choice Awards of $200, $150 and $100 will be given for the three most popular works in the show.


You may submit up to four pieces, and your work must be ready to hang (preferably with a wire, not frame clips). A label with your name, medium and title of the piece must be attached to the back of the artwork.

The Gallery may use an image of your artwork for publicity purposes to promote the 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; however, the Gallery will assume no risk for loss or damage to any artwork whether from manmade or natural causes. It is the sole responsibility of the artist to insure each work against risk in whatever amount is considered necessary.
