Regional art exhibition coming in March, still accepting entries

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.

For more information on submitting artwork or for gallery hours, go online to kamloopsarts.ca.
