Expressions 44: Creative Communities
27 April-2 June, 2019
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Waterloo Region Public, Catholic and Independent Schools are invited to submit original student artworks for Expressions 44, the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery's annual exhibition of student artwork from across Waterloo Region.
Students are asked to respond to the theme Creative Communities, inspired by the collaborative artwork Fruit Bowl by Grade 1 and 2 students from Vista Hills Public School. Students are encouraged to explore their communities, whether it is the classroom, their family, or their neighbourhood, and respond in a creative manner to their findings. Schools are encouraged to submit 3-6 artworks.
Schools and teachers are advised to familiarize themselves with the Submission Requirements and Key Dates below.
1. Artwork label information submitted no later than 15 March 2019. A separate submission is required for each artwork. A paper copy of the label must be affixed to the back of the artwork in order to identify it upon delivery.
2. Parental release forms must be originals (with signatures) and must be submitted with the artwork between 4-12 April 2019.
3. All two-dimensional work must be framed and wired, ready to hang. Artwork that is not ready to hang will not be accepted. Three-dimensional work should be accompanied by a diagram indicating how it is to be displayed.
