CALL FOR ARTISTS - All Canadian SAQA members may apply

Colour with a U

In Canada, we spell colour with a “u”. We also spell labour, favourite, honour, and neighbour with a “u”. That “u” could stand for unique, unforgettable, universal, unity, understanding, utopia. It could include the unusual, unexpected, unbound, unabashed, unaccounted, uncanny. We care about the “u”, it makes us unique. We care about the “you”, it brings us together. What do the Canadian values of diversity and inclusion mean to you? How does your labour in your favourite medium honour your neighbourhood, your community? How do you colour yourself in to our Canadian culture? We are looking for artworks that visualize these ideas and that together will give an insightful perspective on our Canadian cultural identity. We encourage work of all types, including representational, abstract, and social commentary, in 2D and 3D.

Opening location:  Homer Watson House & Gallery, Kitchener ON   March 15 - April 19, 2020

The exhibition will travel across Canada until March 2023.
