TOM Asking For Art Submissions

Owen Sound | by Claire McCormack  

Art Gallery is asking artists to submit miniature square works.

The Tom Thomson Art Gallery in Owen Sound is putting out a call for submissions of miniature art for its 100 Squares exhibition.

The TOM is asking for submissions in person between May 25th and June 7th.

One 100mm (10cm x 10cm x 10cm) square area of wall space is available to the first one hundred artists to register.

From June 14th to August 31st,  the squares will be displayed for sale in the Art Gallery Shop.

Visitor Services and Membership Coordinator Hillary Weppler says last year, 45 artists participated and over 60 works were sold. Over 4,500 people viewed the works over the summer.

"You'd be surprised, the impact that the tiny works can have. They're quite visually stunning," says Weppler.

The Gallery says the show is non-juried, but notes they reserve the right to decline work at their discretion.
