Artists wanted for ‘Oh Canada!’ Art Exhibition

May 11, 2015 - 10:39 AM


KAMLOOPS - The Kamloops Arts Council's new Oh Canada! Art Exhibition is a multi-day visual arts exhibit that celebrates our great country. The exhibition will take place Sunday, June 28 to Wednesday, July 1, at Heritage House. 

The focus of Oh Canada! is on the themes of Canada's history, culture and identity, showcasing art from all nationalities and reflecting the rich fabric of our nation. 

Oh Canada! will culminate at Art in the Park / Canada Day celebrations at Riverside Park, with 30,000 people in attendance.

The Oh Canada! exhibition is an excellent opportunity for artists to display and sell up to 2 pieces of 2D or 3D artwork in a highly visible indoor location at Heritage House. (Community arts groups are permitted to enter a maximum of 5 pieces.) Artists must be or become members of the Kamloops Arts Council. 

The interpretation of the "Oh Canada!" theme can be as indirect or literal as the artist wishes -- everything from Canadian landscapes, floral or wildlife to specific Canadian icons or multicultural references. Each work should be accompanied by a short statement that explains how the artwork fits the theme.

Deadline for entry is Saturday, May 30. Entry information and guidelines can be accessed at

May 30 is also the deadline for Art in the Park performers. Applications to perform ‘unplugged’ music, dance and theatre at Art in the Park on Canada Day are now being accepted by the KAC. Application forms may be accessed at
