Call to Artists
The deadline to submit artwork to the POP! Goes the Art Auction event is this Saturday. Artists are invited to email a photo of their work to firstname.lastname@example.org to be included in this year’s program.
The Art Gallery of Grande Prairie is committed to supporting our local artistic community through exhibitions, professional development opportunities, and elevating the community’s awareness for the intellectual, spiritual and emotional value of the Arts. Artists who donate works can help us meet these goals, and we’re proud to support them by inviting them to the event as well as offering them to choose their remuneration (details below).
