The Colborne Art Gallery is presenting it’s Sixth Annual Juried Show this April!

Artists across southern Ontario submitted their work to the competition in one of several categories: painting, drawing, mixed media, photography, video, printmaking, sculpture, fibre, glass, fine jewellery, ceramics, metal and woodwork.

Works were chosen in this year’s competition by Celeste Scopelites, the Director of the Peterborough Art Gallery. Scoplites, among other things, has also been Director/Curator of the Art Gallery of Sudbury, and Curator & Manager of the Residency Program at the Living Arts Centre in Mississauga.

All are welcome to the exhibition of original art, which opens on April 21 and runs through June 3. The opening reception and awards presentation will take place on Saturday, April 21, 2-4 pm. The opening reception is a great opportunity to meet the many artists who contributed to the show.

The Colborne Art Gallery is at 51 King Street East in Colborne. For more information about the Colborne Art Gallery, please visit their Web site,
