Art Exposed is set to mark its 10th annual exhibition, but it first wants to see more from the region’s artists.
The annual week-long event features artists from all across the Thompson-Nicola Regional District, and this year, will be held from March 6 to March 14.
Last year’s event showcased more than 250 original pieces of art — the work of 100 local artists — juried by a panel selected by the Kamloops Arts Council.
An opening reception will be held on March 6 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Old Courthouse Cultural Centre, 7 West Seymour St.
Artists interested in submitting their work to be displayed at the exhibition can do so until Feb. 14. KAC members must pay $25 for their first piece and $15 for a second, while non-members pay $35 for their first piece and $25 for a second. Art can be in any medium, but must have been completed in the past 18 months.
Awards will be given for top emerging artists, top established artists, best-in-show for youth, people’s choice and artist’s choice.
