ChildSight: Scarborough Arts’ 28th Annual Juried Exhibition – Call for Submissions


Scarborough Arts’ is now accepting artistic submissions for its 28th Annual Juried Exhibition. The 2013 theme is: ChildSight.

What might we see from a child’s perspective?

Deadline for submissions: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2013 – 5:00pm
Applications are available at

We leave the interpretation of this theme up to the artist. Pieces for the exhibition should relate to the theme, and will be selected based upon a combination of: artistic quality, technical execution and/or conceptual strength, originality and impact.

Our 2013 exhibition will include an interactive, new media layer, presented in collaboration with our ongoing in-school program, Kaleidoscope. Scarborough kids from the Kaleidoscope intercultural arts program will learn how to interpret, discuss and critique artwork, using selected pieces from the exhibition. Audio recordings of these critique sessions will be captured and edited, accompanying the works for public listening in the gallery exhibition.

Artists are invited to submit up to 3 images of work, a detailed image list, artist statement, current CV, and a stamped self addressed envelope to the Scarborough Arts Council. Work in all media is eligible, but must be equipped to hang on a gallery wall. Unfortunately freestanding sculptural work cannot be considered.
