Each year Latcham Art Centre attracts artists from across the region and beyond to share their
newest artworks with the Stouffville community in our Annual Juried Exhibition.
Artists working in a variety of different media submit for a chance to be part of the large group exhibition selected by a jury of three art professionals. In addition to providing direct access for the public to
engage with exciting and compelling contemporary art, this juried competition creates a space for
artists to push themselves and network with others in the field.
Local artist Vicky Talwar says,”It has been a privilege and a pleasure to participate in the Annual Juried Exhibition for the past three years. I have had the opportunity to meet other artists, organizers and figures in my local art scene. Participating in this exhibition has been beneficial for my career as an artist because
it has helped me gain confidence in my work, get feedback from the public and gain exposure.”
Be sure to attend the opening reception on March 9 from 1 to 3 pm to see and celebrate
the top 30 most accomplished and interesting artworks selected. $1000 in awards will be presented
during remarks at 1:30 pm. This exhibition runs until April 27 and is generously supported by
Stouffville IDA Pharmacy.
This year’s jurors are Sandy Saad, Curator of Exhibitions and Education, Visual Arts Centre of
Clarington, Renée van der Avoird, Assistant Curator of Canadian Art at the Art Gallery of Ontario
and Matthew Varey, Artist and Head of Contemporary Art at Etobicoke School of the Arts.
On March 30 at 1 pm, Juror Sandy Saad will share her insights and experiences from
her role on this year’s jury panel. Exhibiting artists in attendance will be invited to say a few
words about their work on display and there will be an opportunity to ask questions and join
the conversation. Refreshments will be served and a $5 donation is suggested.
